Re: Original Edge vs Gotoh OFR
Sounds fantastic... 7 Daemoness guitars! I'm going for a 6 string, probably a V, following a historical concept that Dylan seems really excited to develop. I'm yet to talk to him in depth about the design since we've got 20 months to wait yet. It could end up a 7-string, I do appreciate my current Ibanez Universe, but I think I'm a 6-stringer at heart.`Other specs: floyd rose of some description, BKP pickups (I love alnico Nailbombs) - wood types I'm happy to leave up to Dylan's artistic vision; especially as I have no particular allegiance to dark or bright sounding woods - both can sound fantastic as I've experienced with my two J-Customs.
I do love the Edge, I just wish the arm socket/bar/bushings idea was better designed. I hate that the perfect amount of whammy-bar-play according to your preference only lasts for a few weeks maximum before coming too loose again.
How do you find the flatbacker in comparison to the wizard profile?
Good stuff. At least you got in before the order book was closed. Keep your concept between yourself and Dylan.
The flatbacker is actually based on the Super Wizard so if you've played a 7 string JC or Prestige recently it will feel very similar to those. I have a build nearing completion with the shredator profile which will be thinner again. Should be here in the next 2 months or so.
I have Nailbombs in my Cimmerian (mahogany) and they sound great. They are actually Dylans pickup of choice as well.
Interested to hear that you have gone for a V. Will it be a classic V or the Hadian shape for example??
