Re: Xiphos 7 stringers, opinions wanted

I thought that the Xiphos build quality was pretty poor to be honest, my guitar teacher went to a necrophagist show and mohammed let him play his xiphos, and mohammed said it was setup so badly when he was given it [yet he still owned on it] and he said the build quality was pretty poor, rough edges bad neck construction etc

was this a regular xiphos, or his LACS?

Re: Xiphos 7 stringers, opinions wanted

Dino Cazares has been using a Xiphos 7 (with tremolo system, or at least one with lockable tuners) with some of his stuff with Divine Heresy. If anyone wants to see it, just search for his jams with Tim Yeung on YouTube (which is worth watching, as it amazed me that Dino actually strays past the 4th string - don't get me wrong, I like Dino's style, but he seems to have broadened his horizons post FF and Brujeria).

It's no fair.

He gets a nice Xiphos 7 and I'm going to get something I'm probably going to hate.
