Laguna Le 924 Greg Howe Neck w Floyd Rose EMG 85 Quilt Maple Top Ash Strat HSS | eBay
I was about to say "what's wrong with this one? I don't see anything major about it"...
THEN I SAW THE FVCKING NECK PICKUP
AND I COULDN'T STOP SEEING
Worked fine for ESP:
Barely two pickups, five knobs, a miniswitch, and a blade switch.
WTF do they all do?
Look pretty (especially the knobs)?
Looks can be deceiving.
There are actually three pickups, neck/middle/bridge. The knobs are for volume, bass, mid, treble, and gain. The guitar has an active preamp, like many basses.
The blade switch works much like a traditional 5-way on a three pickup guitar:
2) neck & middle out of phase
4) middle & bridge
The mini-switch is a coil tap.
That Roth guitar has always been a secret pleasure of mine
The Alvarez Scoop!!!!!! hahaha I wanted one when I was a kid.
The same guitar in trans-blue is $4000 off the original price!
What a steal at only $16,555!
I dunno... I can understand if this isn't that funny or if some find it cool. Even I was a little intrigued by it for about 10 seconds. But now I just look at it with more of a "wtf?" feeling.
I remember that! That's awesome you saved the text. I forgot how tragically bad that whole ad was.
So, I stumbled on a local ad of this abomination... Here's a better pic from a different site:
And no, this is not a modified body shape, it was made like this on a factory... The pic I added in the post is also from a website that's all about hideous guitars, so I guess I'll leave a link to it as well.
These were made in USSR. And many people sell them like a rare collector's guitars these days, when they are actually absolute shite.
I have a friend who really REALLY wants one of those Tonkias
Damn, I actually like that 7 string Bich. Classy.
wtf is this bro? you flippin me off bro? you wanna go ?!
Looks like a quality piece.... but gloss black on the knobs and switch and make the abalone go away ( looks like abalone). Binding and finish look great. Idk... something about the weird cut of the lower body.
The "weird cut" is there because originally it was a 10-string guitar:
The shape's just become more than a little bit iconic and they've made 6 (and 7) string versions.
Out of everything so far (and out of BC Rich's catalogue...) I'd say this is one of the LEAST funny/weird/terrible guitars in the thread
Dude, you're in the wrong thread.
The Bich, especially the Steve Smyth sig there, is badass.
