The Ibanez X-ing is better.

Better Engineered - no 'chicken wing' support bar.

Problems:
-No one EVER has the Ibanez synth/midi interface that went with it.
-The cable is a non-standard 24pin MIDI cable. There were no standards at the time...

I realize this isn't a thread about actually playing guitar but rather a poorly disguised shrine to blind, shameful consumerism that exemplifies why people immediately lose interest when you say you play guitar vs. violin or piano, but I came across this a couple days ago and thought it was pretty cool:
The drop D lever there is interesting, I've never heard of it, and I haven't heard of something that just bends the low E or G.

I'd say the killswitch was cool as well, although I've found a clearly far superior option for producing percussive elements: an improperly grounded screw that buzzes like crazy if you touch it. Other people seem to cover them up or fix them, but I say don't: it doesn't hurt anything and the more options are better, so why get rid of it:

Imo it's specifically the grittiness and imperfection that makes electric guitars even worth bothering with at all, since acoustics are so easy to amplify these days (this is through transducers. They aren't supposed to sound this muddy and hushed, I'm just doing something wrong)

Despite my miserable off tempo poorly recorded example above, I really recommend trying acoustic fingerpick. It's very meditative and tends to be a lot easier to make work solo.

PS: Sorry if screwing around on the guitar in this guitar thread is overly personal or w/e. God forbid anyone try to play their instruments, that would be cringe.

Wow, you and @Dyn too? Who knew internet discussion forums would appeal to so many Australian aboriginals.

Everyone in Australia has honorary membership in the crackatinny nation you didn't need to tag me for this.
I apologize friend, I didn't intend to interrupt your tribal gasoline huffing rituals. Sorry to disturb you.

GEAR FOR THE GEAR SHRINE

Speaking of... 8string D'classical:

I suppose these guys could incorporate it straight off
Gear shrine smh, degenerates like you belong on a cross.
Impotent rage aside, given how fingerpick on acoustics works I've always felt like having more strings would be more beneficial, since you utilize open strings so often to maintain a drone. I've never felt that much draw to multiscale electrics, but I could imagine a multiscale 7 or 8 string acoustic being potentially great.

Also I hope this could possibly be of some interest: today I actually took the leap and drilled out my endpin, put the jack through, and attached the transducer leads to underneath my bridge plate (in the last recording they were haphazardly tacked to the soundboard just past the bridge), and got this. I'm really happy with it tbh, hopefully someone will find the comparison helpful if they're considering doing the same (I used the exact same reaper settings btw):
Transducer leads on the front (prior recording):


Transducer leads under bridge plate (new recording):


If you have no idea what the fuck I'm talking about with transducers or endpin jacks:

I understand permanent modifications like that tends to be nerve wracking to do yourself and expensive to pay a luthier to do (for a lot of us sane people it could well cost more than your actual guitar), but the amplification feels very organic and unless you pointed out that your lower strap button is also your output jack nobody would ever know.

These guys can really play its a shame they can't write good music at all.
At that level of shred I can't even tell if the music is good or not, it just sounds like butterflys electrocuting my brain, which is pleasant enough for my enjoyment.

Gear porn tax (just to stay honest with myself):

Pull your fucken head in you privileged white boy.

This is Noonguitah country. Like the local footy team, I'm the captain of this thread, if you wanna post you better hand over your smokes.

Lots of Strunz and Farah influence.


Like the finish on that axe m8.

If only your trolling was as good as your playing and tech skills you might have gotten somewhere in life mate.

Aside the anxiety I hope you didn't hurt your wrist using a drill?

Since I'm a shameless consumer my Takamine already had the input in the tail piece strap button. Good on you for upgrading a guitar you got from cash converters/hard rubbish, bet your wifes boyfriend is proud.

Face Down are fucking boss. Off to dig through my boxes of old CDs I go, I guess... :P

Was going through some cassettes of stuff I taped off local radio in the 90's, can't believe that band kind of fell out of my memory for so long,

Armoured Saint is another "under the radar bands" from that era. John Bush before he joined Anthrax.

GGGGGGGEEEEEAAAAARRR

Should I get this guitar? It's a VERY limited, failed Gibson model. Not too much money, value has fallen in the last 5 yrs...
Fair condition, missing some candy, busted wiggle-stick... $1600.
Custom pinstriping, The N-225.

Washburn near-equivalents cost half as much, but if it's a real Gibson it's a rare thing—maybe a unique tailpiece/bridge/tremolo experiment. If you like that shape and those pickups, it's probably the coolest one you'll ever find. Maybe test it (or have it demonstrated) to see if it can be correctly intonated. It looks like it can't, but looks are often wrong. Just buy it and work on it if you like odd-sounding stuff.
