..and man, this has gotta be the most gorgeous guitar i've ever played. the vintage violin over mahoghany is just SOO rich, the grain comes alive in the light. the neck feels amazing; whatever the prestige guys do is totally worth it. the frets appear to be much more even than my 7620 (who'se fretwork ain't half bad either
) and feel like they're maybe slightly smaller- i'll have to A/B them to confirm this (got the guitar first thing this morning a half-hour before i left for work, so not much time for the details yet). The peizo tone is pretty good- not exactly like a good acoustic, but exactly like a decent acoustic electric's peizo output- i can live with this.
Ind i was having a ball this morning hooking the mnagnetic output up to my mesa and the acoutic to my dad's fender, and flicking the switch back and forth.
I can't wait till i get home and get to keep playing the thing.
I can get pictures if anyone wants any...
A very excited Drew
EDIT- ok, by request...
-outdoors, for full, idunno, "glow" of the wood.
-kinda a "player's position" shot. pretty cool.
-the collection; a bit small compared to some of the ones out there, but come on, i'm on a college budget.
'97 american standard strat with some heavy mods, and '99 RG-7620 and RG-2027.
The couch isn't rich's, but whatever.
And, just for kicks-
-a 40 second sound clip of a fingerstyle riff played twice- first straight into my computer, and then through my j-station, in a bass model with some heavy eq work and the speaker sim bypassed. Plugged into my dad's stereo, this patch sounded disturbingly real,
Now, this is one of those geocities free accounts, so i'm gonna go WAY over my bandwidth allocation here- if one of youys wants to download these and host them elsewhere, that'd be cool.
I can e-mail as well. Drop me a line.
