Re: Sims Custom Shop Guitar Review

It is very difficult, if not impossible, to come up with a completely new guitar body shape that still maintains the classic lines (e.g. Strat, Les Paul, Les Paul Junior, Tele, Flying Vee, Explorer etc) that the vast majority of consumers want. They've all been before. In order for a new guitar body style to succeed in the marketplace, it has to be just different enough to not be just like everything else but similar enough to everything else to not be too radical. The vast majority of solidbody guitars sold are based upon the classic shapes, primarily the Strat.

Does Patrick's double cutaway body shape look similar to other guitars? Yes.

Does Patrick's double cutaway body shape look exactly like another other guitars? No.

Case dismissed.

BTW, one person's "lopsided" is another person's "asymmetry". Lopsided connotes a defect or abnormality of some sort whereas asymmetry infers a designed disproportion.

Good thing about a free socity is that if you donít like it, you donít have to buy it! Once you hit puberty you will learn to like curves more :P

Re: Sims Custom Shop Guitar Review

Hey patrick, your guitar has strings on it.

Everyone puts strings on copied that from other guitar manufacturers ..gzzz!

This is ridiculous.

Greeaatt!!!....we have Dino in this thread...might as well just close the thread, before it gets any worse.

I think patrick does a good job...let the man make the guitar he wants to make!!...If you don't like it...don't buy it.

Anyway, all of this is off topic.

The OP was just giving a review of his nice new custom guitar and this is what it has turned into. Shame on some of you people.

I like the guitar - it looks evil - and the "lopsided" look is sweet - it's like the Caparison Apple Horn model - looks awesome. If the Sims only came in black . . .

Re: Sims Custom Shop Guitar Review

That Horizon III looks really cool, I like it, but its honestly the 1st time I've ever seen one. They ever come up on the bay, if so how much can you swipe one up like that used generally? Are they rare? I do collect guitars so I'm always looking for stuff to add to my collection.

Thanks man! And just so you know, its available in any color you want, and their will be a black 6 string & black 7 string completed and for sell in about 1 month. The 6 string one will have either EMG's in it or green Dimarzio X2N's, haven't made my mind up on that yet, 7 string will have EMG's. Floyd Rose trems, all black hardware, sperzels, etc etc...Oh, and both are in Mahogany.

Yep, thats pretty much exactly how it looks in person.
