I mean, as much as I like Kiesel, I think he'd be better off sticking with Vigier
I’m in the camp where I just blissfully ignore Jeff’s turdyness and enjoy the fruits. But it certainly isn’t getting easier as time passes. Dude needs a monster energy drink pacifier and not untethered access to social media.
Yeah I only meant that in jest
I hate the fact that I actually really like this design. Looks better than a straight up rr style headless imo
> new model
it looks sharper and I love it.
McRocklin getting one in 3.. 2..
I think it looks better than the Type X, but I still can't decide because the Type X looks more comfortable and balanced to play.
It was put up on the web a few days ago.
I play with my guitar on my right leg, so I need some sort of lower horn to keep it from sliding off me thigh, without needing grip tape or some sort of attached hardware.
That's a pretty sick headless V, but yeah, I think the X will have better ergonomics too.
Is it just 6-string though?
For now, yes. 6 only, not multiscale, with or without trem.
No doubt this will be unplayable sitting down.
Looks totally fine if you play in classical position. Or with a strap. I'd rather have this than a Vader if I were looking for a compact metal headless.
With a symmetric V, or Rhoads type, I'd almost agree...but based on my experience with the regular ultra V and its inverted style, I wouldn't be too optimistic.
Maybe that's just me though.
I think that will greatly depend on how deep you're sitting. If you're perched forward, sure...but slimped back in a sofa, i can see how maybe the lower point would stick down further and not sit on your leg properly. Haven't had one in my hands to know, though.
Isn't a symmetrical V, though, typically two long horns? I feel like that would be worse than having the long horn on just the bottom.
But, standing up, to my eye, Carivn/Kiesel's "backwards" V was the only one that looks "balanced". I have no emotional connection to Rhodes or jackson or gibson style V or the players who played them, but when they are "top heavy", that always seemed off-balance to me.
Vaders are basically the perfect guitar to play in the classical position ime. Without a contour that wraps around the elevated leg or some way to create friction like grip tape it'll prob slide around. That's always been my main issue with the majority of Vs.
Do you play with your left (if right handed) leg elevated? I could see an issue if you're nestling the guitar between two same-height legs as those tuners on the 27" could extend out further and more likely to hit your leg, but if the guitar is perchec on a raised left thigh, I could see that working. Also, the 25.5" scale version has the bridge pulled in a bit so you're just less likely to bump them anyway.
Looks like a lefty guitar, I can't unsee it.
