thanks for pointing that out jono.
typo on my part. It's 285. The second post is the correct one. I will edit the incorrect post.
I'll see if I can borrow a digital camera from work (don't have enough money to buy one anymore.
lol) and take some piccies, cause the pic
on darren's site doesn't do 285 justice.
Hey Jerry, that's a nice one you've got there. Not as "pink" as mine (lol). I was really worried when I went to pick my dna up. I didn't know what number it was, and i was worried I was going to get a swirl that I wasn't happy with, but I'm glad I got 285, she's a pretty guitar, and plays like nothing I've ever played before.
Setup wise all that mine needed was the action to be lowered, was sitting a bit high for my liking. So I dropped the action, and surprisingly I didn't have to adjust the truss rod. There was no buzzing!
Playability...well. What can I say, smooth as silk and fast. Crazy fast. I haven't played a VWH so I can't compare it to that, but i have played an FP, own an RG570, and played a U.S. telecaster. The other guitar's don't compare.
One thing that I found strange was that the DNA is listed as having a wizard neck, I found that the DNA's neck is not as thin as my RG's. It's a closer profile to my mate's FP. Not as thick as the FP's neck, but still noticeably thicker than my RG's neck.
Also, while looking *deep* into the paint :mc: I noticed "drip" marks, slight imperfections, kinda like water drip marks. Are these normal? Are they what are called "nebula" by our friend Rich? (hehehe...rich---nebula). <jk>
Sound....unbelievable. Did I mention in my other post that if you hold a note and perform some of what I call "vai sexual vibrato", the note sings, sustains, fades, then sings into a harmonic...
Absolutely wonderful. I've always wanted a guitar that did that!
Anyway, better stop typing. I want to play some more anyhow.
Oh yeah, mine's a player. But it ain't leaving the house!!!
