While holding my breath and turning blue waiting for the KxK (haaa!), I managed to get a shot of the collection of a family friend.
Whenever I think I have gone a bit too far in my guitar collecting, I look at this picture and think that I could be a lot worse!
[~ MG_Metalgoddess~] Sunday, November 09, 2008 4:22:04 PM 
I like the natural color look.. I dont care for the style to much.. But then again Iam not the one who has to trip over it....

I'm sure I'll take a beating for this one, but that body looks an awful lot like the Jackson Death Kelly.

Looking forward to how Glenns guitar turns out- is it just the angle but it seems strangely short lengthways. still I compare all guitars to my Ibanez automatically now... and NONE COMPARE!! truly I love my guitar- speaking of which I have to go play for mass down at church now- with my acoustic though. The ibanez does come along occasionally but playing through the somewhat dodgy PA can be a pain (and any tpe of distortion completely forbidden lol)... I'll stop babbling now...

ha, thats very nice to hear. ill have to talk to him about that. love recording equipment. i wouldnt say mine is amazing i put like 4000 bucks into it and that includes the Apple laptop i got. you guys are gonna sound great now. hopefully MM is doing some good practice with that stuff, takes a while to learn to get everything up the way you want it, and there are little tricks to some of it. im sure there is nothing to worry about though.

MM went out and bought all new equipment! We have a top of the line, DIGITAL system. We have some original music which we plan to record and about 15 Priest tunes. There is a list on the Project Thread. We are doing some tougher material this time. Trying to make a better product, you know?  I wish you could make it, man. You are as much a part of the 'Defenders as any one of us.

Ha, yea, trying to do the Black Metal(hails JD) thing. listening to some early Emperor right now and my amp is warming up and getting ready for destruction. lol, no satanic club, pretty much against anything religious at the moment. love satanism for its entertainment value in black metal. no, havnt noticed. im sure it will be bad ass. are you guys going analog or MM rent some digital equipment this time? not trying to knock him or anything, but digital would make you guys sound a lot better i bet. if i was able to come i could definitely bring my recording stuff. got all sorts of stuff now. good luck on album though. cant wait to hear the finished product

that guitar does look pretty amazing. only thing id change on it is the active pick ups. i like the fat sound of like a gibson 500 T pickup like on the gibson V's. i dont like how thin the sound on actives are. the bridge looks awesome. an ebony or maple fretboard would b a lot better too i think.

Yup, I am sure they do cherish those suckers. I look all the time and, to date, have only seen ONE!

There is a Phantom on eBay right now. Just not the GT. Besides looking for the guitar, I am also looking for the Hamer catalog that advertised them. I have this ad (that someone is selling on eBay for $9.99!?) and, although you can't see it, there is a little note at the bottom to send a couple of bucks to get the catalog. Wonder if that offer is still good?

I truly think I will be better off just continuing the hunt for a well used Phantom GT. Those are more of my preferred shape anyway. Boy,those suckers are elusive,been watching E-bay and a few other sites and nothing is coming up for them. Those who own them obviously realize what a gem they have!!

The KxK site is brief,but they have those other models to look at for now. Gonna have to watch this one for price!! maybe it`s time for a Christmas present for myself!!
I`m still uncertain about the speed loaders as there are many parameters that have to be just right for them to just pop into near perfect tune. 
Perhaps KK will loan me his guitar tech if I purchase one!!!!!
[spapad] Thursday, October 16, 2008 9:34:55 PM 
Hope they make the necessary adjustments to it KK did. Notice KK moved the controls to the front of the guitar, instead of the back where they were originally put.
It's a beauty though.

Yeah it's because of the speed loader! And I always suppose KK knows what's the best for him to play with...

But I'm really in love with this guitar!

Here is what we can read on the KxK official site about these guitar...

" KxK will be making and accepting a limited number of

These will be exact to K.K.'s guitars but will have a

limited number of options available.

 I think that KK`s using the Floyd  Rose, is because Kahler doesn`t have anything that is compatible with the new speed loader strings. Apparently there is something to these things.

[guitardude] Friday, October 03, 2008 7:38:43 PM 
Need some help!!
A friend from work has come across an old Kramer of unknown year model. It has two humbuckers that are the EMG Selects,the neck pickup is slanted,not the bridge. It has the standard fulcrum tremelo and the neck is amazingly fast. The neck plate says "Made in USA",not the typical "Made in Neptune NJ",it has a nice weight to it,so I don`t think it`s one of the plywood bodies, which are usually very heavy. It does not have any series markings(Focus,Stryker,etc)
 The guitar is ,as far as we know in totally stock condition. Anybody got any clues?? I know about the "Vintage Kramer" site,but I don`t have the serial number handy. Oh yea!! The body is painted in a "Colonial White" but the headstock is black with the logo in block lettering in gold.
Any clues??

I would assume that as bad as the current economy is and the pending elections, belts are tightening everywhere. I am certain that most of us here do not earn a living at it, and it is more or less reduced to hobby status. I personally have been stashing for the holidays already, as being in the steel industry it is just a matter of time until business catches up with the automakers. It is an 8 year cycle with two of those years being painfully slow....

Well, with care booklet in hand, I guess it doesn't really use the word "smoke." To quote:

"A rapid change in temperature or humidity can result in small cracks in the finish known as 'finish checking' ... If a bright bluish FOG appears on the top, close the case immediately and let it warm up for a few minutes." But, bright blue fog?! Yeah, I would assume that would be a bad thing.

Damn! Never heard of the smoke before!! I knew of the expansion rate from taking my guitars on airlines before,but mostly for the neck,not the body.    Try a camera shop,they will have the lithium batteries in the 9 volt. that will give the closet thing to having the AC adaptor. 
Lihium would really be the route to go for everyone,but they cost so much in comparison.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by guidogodoy from Saturday, August 16, 2008 11:35:08 PM)

Still on the battery. A regular, at that. None of those supercharged things (that I did look for but couldn't find around here).

Sounds great all the same. Just tone heaven this afternoon. Even took the time to read the instructions as to how to care for this fine instrument today. Just out of curiousity. LOVED the advice from Gibson Custom as to watch for "blue smoke" coming off the guitar if you move it from extreme cold to hot. Close the case immediately! Wood expanding too fast for the paint!

If the tone has stuck to you like that,try a little rubbing alcohol!!!lol!  If you liked the tone that much,that`s your amp. All this time later and you still think about it, sounds like that your choice is made. The MG`s have a good thick tone,very tube like. get it and go for it!! When you need to upgrade,you`ll know what you`re expectations are from an amp. The Line6 stuff is good also,but I think I would go for the Marshall,since it`s "stuck to you" and all!!

[TIMBONI] Monday, August 11, 2008 12:15:55 AM 
That is good if it's tube.  I got lucky.  When I was in the market, I found a music store clerk who needed the cash and let his mid '70s 50 watt half stack go for $350.  He locked the store up and we went to his house.  Cash and carry of course, but that amp kicked ass.  I used to run it in stereo with my Carvin 100 watt through my Boss ME-5.  Tough set up, but it was worth it.  I was the only guitartist, but it sounded  like there was two of us because the sounds were so different.

You`re probably checking out a solid state model,they can be had fairly cheap. A true tube amp will set you back a couple of mortgages!!
Look at Krank,they have two mini combo`s that can be had in half stack configurations,their newest one has an expanded EQ section,but they are still not cheap!!

I have had the older Boss OD-1 and the DS-1 in the past and loved them. And thanks to a very generous fellow board member here,I have the DS-1 again.  Been a Boss guy for a long time,not that I think they are superior,but they are readily available and consistently good.  I use my DS-1 thru my son`s Fender G-Dec Jr. amp ,and combined with the internal overdrive in the 80`s British mode,it`s a great tone for all era`s of metal.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by Judas Deth from Thursday, August 07, 2008 3:20:45 PM)

i use a small peavey combo amp and i use a Boss Super Overdrive SD-1 in series with a Boss Distortion DS-1 on the clean channel and it sounds pretty good its probably the best tone i can get at the moment. My amp doesn't have a built-in overdrive or distortion.

I used Carvin exclusively back in '87-'88.  They were an awsome company with great equipment and an even greater amount of integrity and commitment to quality.  I loved their speaker cabinets.  At the time, they were the only affordable option for fully enclosed cabs with big speakers ( 4x12 ).  The bass knock out of those were incredible.

S.Leads
Didn`t you post a pic of your stuff once,I seem to recall seeing one and you mentioned how great the V3 is far Vintage Priest!
I love Carvin`s stuff,had a little bad luck with an order from them a while back,but wasn`t their fault,more of a UPS thing.
I know the vintage 30`s are a good speaker,I had  the Carvin British series in my Marshall cabs,put them in in the late 90`s.  My favorite Celestion is a discontinued model... the Cloth Edge Sidewinders, used another guys cabs once and he had these in there ...my god I have never heard a speaker breathe like that,man it was thick with a truly amazing top end.
The Legacy has a very glassy clean tone,good for old Van Halen stuff.

guitar dude. The Roland is quite good. I spent years looking for a good clean channel and something that I could scream the hell out of for a lead channel. I love the hell out of my Carvin Legacy and V3 amp heads running through Vintage 30 speakers. The Legacy is my main rig but the V3 is better for really dirty harsh nue metal. When I play live, sound guys love me. My setup cuts through the mix, maintains low end and is very easy for them to work with.
[Phantom A6] Thursday, July 31, 2008 1:54:02 PM 
Correct. And I like to "surprised" the clean channel with
a Overdrive and/or a Distortion Pedal.
The combination of my Boss OD-1 Overdrive or my OD-2 Turbo Overdrive and my Boss HM-2 Heavy Metal Distortion Pedals is awesome.
[guitardude] Tuesday, July 29, 2008 1:41:41 PM 
That Roland is an awesome amp,it is the benchmark to which all clean sounds are judged!! many artist use these for their clean tones,and when driven,sound nice and chunky!!

My Amp is the Roland JC-120 Jazz Chorus.
With the legendary OD-1 Overdrive and CE-2 Chorus
in. Today I was on ebay. A DigiTech Distortion, the 
"Hod Head" was mine. Next week a heavy metal thunder
blown through my rooms.

I had a small Crate a long time ago and it was very good for such a small amp. There big one`s however,are another story.

I just ordered the Crate Profiler 5 practice amp.  For $100 I couldn't resist and it comes with recording software.  I'm sure it's not top of the line, but Crate usually makes decent amps and for a C-note how can you go wrong.

Someone made a tab for Death, no solos though. I played it all and it's all right, I ain't sure about that first riff they list though haha.

I first noticed them on some BC Rich Warlocks at Guitar Center a few months back. I looked at it,but had no desire to play it. Just looked to damn weird!! I ask a salesmen about it,and that~s where I got the info I posted on it. maybe,there is something to these things,dunno,but I don`t think I`ll be trying one anytime soon,unless KK offers me a chance when they come to Dallas!!   Yea,as if!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is the Floyd Rose Speedloader bridge. The strings are extremely close to in tune on installation, and reportedly string life isn't much of a problem. The system was introduced about a year ago, and has yet to meet wide public acceptance. Some manufacturers produced a few guitars with that system, but most consumers shied away from them due to the fact they did not have tuners installed, and "looked really funny."

You mean the new white one, he had alot of it retooled by his guitar tech because He did not the way it was. Beautiful guitar, but Vol control on back? Just Stupid design. He fixed it. As for the rest, your too tech for me, talk about engines and I know what you speak of, guitars, not so much. But I sure he had in redesigned to fit his preferences.

Moved here for the proper thread for this response to the KK guitar in the "Sinfully Delicious" thread.
Regarding the new Double ball end strings that KK is using on his new White V. 
Very cool,but there  are  things that can go wrong with those. If a string stretches to far,it must be replaced,rather than re-tuned,as there is not enough play left in the string to stretch it out properly.  The tuners on the tremelo bridge are  just like on a reguler tremelo,they`re fine tuners and do not have enough room for a complete retune.Now ,that being said,they are particularly reliable,but just not perfect. But if KK has faith in them,who am I to question  our Metal God!!

Yes, that was pre-Kramer for Vivian. Kramer was negotiating with them at the time the SOTN video was shot.
[guitardude] Sunday, July 13, 2008 8:03:13 AM 
I don`t remember all the stuff on this,but I guess that was pre- Nightswan days then?

She did a radio interview with a morning show here last year. She was so wasted she could barely talk, but swore vehemetly that she was clean and sober. Of course she was busted for posession of cocaine three months later...

Sykes did all the writing and studio work, then Coverdale fired everyone from the band and hired the guys in the video. I can't remember the names of the bassist or drummer from the recording sessions, though.

YES !  THANK YOU !  THIS HAS BEEN DRIVING ME NUTS FOR ALMOST A YEAR !       I had even posted on Vivian's web site in "ask Viv", but I never got a response.  Everyone kept telling me I was nuts and it's a Nightswan.  I knew it wasn't, but could not remember the name for the life of me.  [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by SDBinNY from Saturday, July 12, 2008 3:36:03 PM)

If memory serves me correctly, that guitar in the Whitesnake video is a Rand. Prior to the Nightswans, Vivian never really had a sponsorship. Although he was given a Charvel, Charvel/Jackson players never got a sponsorship deal other than one free guitar a year.
