Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

No, its not. I bought the neck from Legacy unfretted (just with the fret slots cut), and had my luthier hand install each fret as with my first custom (although that one had a neck completely hand...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Yeah i think thats the one thing thats absolutely true about BOTH of my customs, they REALLY dont photograph well. Without flash, the colors come out dull and unrealistic, with flash you gotta deal...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Got bored today during my "let my hand cool down" break, haha, so I took a few more pics. With the new knobs installed by the way! Finally got rid of those scary strat knobs. =]. Think it looks much...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Agreed man, thanks. That's kind of why I did the video, it's a lil easier to capture the nice nuances of it that way. And Robb, the knobs are going to go in favor of green abalone topped Q-parts ones...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Thanks for the comment dude. My first custom has a cocobolo fretboard, so I figured I'd go for variety. I play progressive rock/metal, and instrumental guitar ala Andy Timmons, Steve Vai, Satch,...

Oh and I'd like to report as probably the first person on here to coil tap an Evo 2 (or to at least write about it), it sounds absolutely amazing. Probably the best sounding coil tapped clean tone of...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Lol woah. Yeah...not my cup of tea. Im most likely going to leave it as is, I LOVE this thing. It has this Carvin meets Alembic vibe that i just dont wanna change.

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

For now I love it as is, but in the future who knows, might get a new neck made for it, I think 3x3 might also look a little cooler. Thanks for your comment!

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

haha really? If anything i feel the exact opposite. And I actually really dislike chrome hardware, it looks overly showy in my opinion and it seems to fade a lot faster than chrome.

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

I've never heard of Driskill but I just looked them up and I can see the resemblance, the body bevels, the wood cavity cover, etc. Very cool axes, with some amazing inlay work. I guess I can feel...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Thanks man. Lets just hope it sounds as good as it looks, haha. I'll find out on Saturday. Can't wait. I mean I've never tried this body wood, and ive never tried a maple fretboard, and I've never...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Yeah I see what you're talking about. In a few months when I scrounge up the cash I'm likely to head back to my custom guy and get a new neck built for it. By that time I'll see if anyone wants my...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Thanks Jim for an actual INTERESTING comment, unlike many I've received. I understand exactly what you're saying and I agree to a large extent. In fact, I would definitely give it like a 60% chance...

Re: The New Custom Axe - DONE! w/pics

Now theres something I can agree with. I feel like I could never play someone else's signature model, like a Vai jem, or a petrucci musicman, or whatever. Why would u want to play a guitar that has...
