I'm considering getting a guitar build from a local builder.
I wonder about using fanned frets. I'm particular about the tension of strings; it makes a difference in tone and feel. With a larger scale, there will be higher tension. How does this work out? What strings do you use?

I'm grinning from ear to ear right now, it's in the dealer's shop at the moment just arrived from the factory, but will be shipping soon.
Here is the spec:

in this month's Guitar One. I did several double-takes looking at the pics, but on the CD in this months GO Vai says he will be fitting all of his guitars with this system. Here is the link:
I have put a deposit down on one of these, and will receive it late august/early september. Can't wait!! Only problem is: its black. Boring black. Ibanez give us no choice, we have to finish what they've started!!!

Well, since I posted this mock-up to overwhelming applause over at the www.sevenstring.org forum, I thought I'd post it over here on the Jemsite in the suggestion section to see what everyone thinks. It's basically an evolution of an earlier idealized seven-string design employing my signature...
What do you think? Looks like a monster! Probably in every aspect. Take a look at the neck. Seems really thick.
Here are some videos too
Too bad there's no distortion in...
Just won this on the 'bay. I've been curious over all the fanned-fret bru-ha-ha going around, and since I basically sold every last electric I owned to finance a wedding that's no longer happening I figured that I would treat myself.
It's made by Michael Dolan. The body is mahogany and maple...
I know that there are many topics about it, but i think the informations are kinda messy. I may be getting an 8 string on the following weeks, but the luthier never build one, so i'll try to make his life easier gathering the infos.
LGM and blackmachine are absolute gorgeous instruments...
rust joins the growing list of dean artists with very promising insight into a new model .

Okay folks, I'm broke and need a vital cash injection into my bank account asap and so I've decided to sell my Oni 8.

Hey there. I'm currently testing the waters on what my 8-string fanned fret design would go for, so I'm asking anyone if you know what custom-shops would take an order for a completely custom guitar.
Here is the design, by the way.
well, i think that this is borderline uncool. also, what is the point in a 10 stringer? so you can massive chord on the low strings and shred on the high e and b strings only? i wouldn't want one
