Re: What does everyone think about this True Temperment necks that Vai talks about
I tried this necks (there are more than one model) this week. And it makes a difference. Whether or not it would be needed for a live situation, well, that's pretty much up to you. But I think it would be good for recordings. If you only play the same pentatonic scale in each song, you wouldn't bother. Some play more complex music, tonally speaking, then it's nice if everything is in tune and you actually can add other instruments over the guitar.
You can get it on any neck. And the frets are casted so refrets are possible.
I could feel a difference playing it, nothing strange at all. (The 24 fret strat is his personal guitar, that's why it's so strange.) I think it would be nice to have on at least one guitar.
