Hah! It's gone about an hour and I still haven't got flamed! Hehehe
Yeah, about signing the neck - I really really hope Steve flies here to pick the necks up, but I don't think so. I have to catch him on tour for the signing or something!
I promise I will post pics ASAP!
Yeah, and Cosmicdebris - I really know what you mean. It's like.. You know, many people always say like "Hey man, cmon.. The guitar's worked in the 'normal way' all the time, so why should we need this? It's just bollocks!"
But the thing is, sure - of course it's worked all throughout the years! It's what we're used to hearing. And the normal way totally works
So I'm absolutely not saying a "Normal" neck doesn't work for me. It's more like, when I sat down for the first time playing a True Temperament neck, it was.. Like seeing God, or something. It felt like it was more than a guitar, because it sounded "fuller" than a guitar. When you have the guitar tuned preperly, then you play a open G chord it can sound just as full and awesome on a "normal" neck, because you can tune all the string to that chord if you'd like.
If you've tuned the guitar to a open G, when you play, let's say an open A chord, it's out of tune. Not so much out of tune so you'll start crying, but it's out of tune. And that's just what we're used to, right? It's always worked. Big deal, a guitar isn't the best tuning instrument.
But playing on a True Temperament really was like picking up another instrument! All the chords I tried sounded just perfect! And I'm by no means known for haveing soime kind of mega-ear that can hear differences int uning by the cent. Not by any means
But this thing really works!
Oh, and for you that thinks bending and lpaying on the neck feel weird, it actualy really doesn't! I was really sceptical to this at first, but I tried numerous times bending over the most weirdly shaped frets, and didn't feel a difference at all, soundwise or feelwise.
I might add that I don't get any credit at all for telling you all this - after all I paid.. Uh, let's see.. About 1,500$ to have it done. Call me crazy
But actually I wouldn't have done it if I didn't miraculously win a Gibson USA Flying V on a lottery, hahah :P
So I sold the V and that paid most of the bill. I got about 1,000$ for the guitar.
Oh, and or you that says it's ugly - Yup. Or rather, I thought it was wicked ugly at the beginning, but it's growing on me, more and more. I like the fact that the frets are a bit curved, it inspires me - let me get philosophical and say that it makes me think about melody and such more freely, because I feel more free when the frets aren't mathematically straight! I don't really know how to explain it, but it makes me feel melody is alot more organic or something. I hope you get what I mean!
