Wow. Google did not disappoint.
That whammy bar isn’t long enough.
Wow the opening line is a killer "Selling guitars should be emotionally very difficult, as it is for me."..........ho no's my babies, what a knob.
I liked the explanation that he painstakingly carves out as little wood as possible from the control cavity, because something something more wood more better, and then, on the same page, talks about how he cuts all of those holes in the body to improve the tone. Like, pick one or the other...
Also, the claim that fancy inlays serve no functional purpose, so therefore are dumb and then, same paragraph, dot inlays are aligned diagonally to improve speed. (?!)
Nonsense with sauce!
I remember Ed Roman's site, and there was some straight NS, but, at least the BS didn't self-contradict!
zachary guitars is like what happens when you take Rick Toone's blog and turn it into a living breathing douchebag. Or maybe that's hufschmid.
Huf used to go on long winded diatribes about Zachary, if he could only see the amount of projection.
huf always came off as an equally arrogant snobby douche imo. His instagram is like 50% him performing autofellatio over his simple builds, branded pickups, gargantuan picks , etc and the other half is him taking selfies while he mimics blue steel. He called himself a "plectrier" ffs
Ed Roman was another character with stuff appropriate for this thread, both on account of a) shapes/aesthetics b) QC and throwing customers under the bus, or c) all of the above. He also got into some hot water years ago with EBMM, and I wouldn't be surprised if he had similar problems with other companies and manufacturers.
This isn't the only forum that's been critical of him and how he rolls, for sure.
Not sure who's actually in charge of running his shop now, as he died way back in 2011. On top of that, his daughter who was supposed to take over passed away not too long after, around 2015-ish.
I found this one near me in the Facebook marketplace... the owner said it used to be an Ibanez RX... something...
I used to have a lot of respect for Rick Toone, pre-Utility/Design patent games, now, the three are different sides of the same coin. One is a case of Schaffer/Natty-Bo, advertised like it's a case of Schaffer/Natty-Bo and that some how makes it better, sold at the price of 100-yr old scotch, another is coffee made from beans shat out by cats, and the third is a better than average, but generic, red blend that's sold like it's 40-yrd old port.
Dave's new acoustic guitar looks absurd. Same goes for his previous acoustic guitar from Dean, on that note.
I...I don't hate the Gibson.
That acoustic is really interesting as they invented a new bracing pattern for the 24 inch scale, which changes the sound according to the video. Not a fan of the looks really .
Is that Mustaine acoustic supposed to be aged or did they just not GAF regarding all those hand-prints?
You sure that's hand prints? looks like the remains of dave's fav white dust to me
Gibby going hard on "play authentic"
I dunno about that bridge...
He specialized in knockoff versions of other companies guitars..like that one which I believe were Prince's guitars made by some Italian luthier or something of the sort. I always dug those guitars. Very 80s, very Prince.
