Mhm. I played my uncles Ibanez a few times, and it was really easy, compared to my Strat. Nice neck, strings were really low, almost touching the fretboard... Really cool.

I never played an SG before, but it looks cool to me. I specialy like it how the highest notes are very accesible (or seem to be, anyway). On a strat, I almost have to break my fingers when I want to play above the 17th fret on the low strings.

So... How do you play the Red Bitch?   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by TIMBONI from Tuesday, July 08, 2008 10:26:32 AM)

I had a red Bich and a black Warlock back in the early 80's.  Very cool looking, but very heavy.  That's what gave them their growl !

From my experience, I think the reason that people say the SG has such a fast neck is because it's so much sleeker than a Les Paul or any other Gibson that I've ever played.  Flater, narrower and just plain easier to get around.  I'd still toss it aside for an Ibanez for playing ease though.

Fastest necks available? I doubt that, but they are great guitars overall. I think Glenn loves SG necks so much that his Hamer guitars have same kind of necks as his old SGs.

I have heard a few times over the years that the SG`s have the fastest necks available. Never gottten to play a real SG.

Telecaster's shape is something that I don't really like, but the guitar is excellent itself. Strats have great feel.. the bodies are excellent, but the bolt on neck sucks... But that's not part of the Strat's shape of course. I'm also sure that many Super Strats are great... Like Ibanez' Jem guitars... must be excellent. Flying V is a bit problematic by it's shape really, but its much better when playing from the upper frets than most of the other guitars... Gibson SG feels pretty good as well. Strat and SG might be my favourites, the shape.

Ibanez make some awesome guitars! No doubt about that. You`re right about the Les pauls ,they are heavy. The BC Rich that I have is light,but it`s made of Alder I think? I have held some that were very heavy(Mockingbird and the Bich)

Yes, I have nice lines...

Seriously tho, I think that the shape of a stratocaster, or a telecaster is impossible to beat. I played quite a few guitars, but I still think that those two are the best. Gibson Les Paul is like weight-lifting, imo, and same is BC rich (tho I never played a BC rich guitar - just a friends bass which is a copy of a BC Rich).

Also, some Ibanez guitars (the ones that look similar to Fender Strats) are pretty cool.

For smooth flowing lines,the Strat is hard to beat. I personally prefer the Strat type of body,they seem to fit me well. I`ve had a variety of guitars over the years,but the start is always my go to shape. the Les paul type is cool, as of recent years had some Epiphone LP`s,but  they just don`t fit me as well.
The angular bodies of the Warlock and the Splitail can be hard to get used to!

I think that Strat is prettier than those...
[guitardude] Sunday, July 06, 2008 12:26:37 PM 
Yep! those are the one`s! I never had a real warlock,only copies,but it was always one of my all time favorites! And Dean makes a badass guitar,never owned one,but would like to.

The BC Rich Warlock is an obvious influence ,but it also has the Dean Spiltail shape to it as well. Good design,a little refinement and you may be on to something there.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by Metal Jesus from Saturday, July 05, 2008 3:34:29 PM)

Here's a guitar I drew a while ago. I don't have a name for it, and I was thinking what you people here thought of it and maybe could help name it. If I'm not mistake, no guitar has the back end that it has and the front end is like a Beast/Warlock combo haha. Headstock is a bit of a rip-off of a B.C. Rich too.

So any thoughts on it?


[guitardude] Monday, June 30, 2008 3:43:14 PM 
I printed the page and will put it in tab for myself as to hopefully better figure out what I`m doing ,once I play it ,it will make more sense to me. Man, my wife is gonna think something`s up because I keep grabbing my guitar again every afternoon. I had gotten to where I was only diddling about 30 minutes on the weekends(if that much) lately!!
but ,I have a good excuse,i`ve been riding the motorcycle alot  in the past few weeks,kind of easy to get lost on that thing!!

"invade" all you want.  As you can see, I'm not exactly infallible myself.  Very little of what I say or do I take very seriously.  It's just hard to tell when it's in type.

Tim, I have no musical talent what so ever and will not invade any more of your musical strings. I just dont have a clue what I am looking at.
