You'll have to understand that the first reading consisted of scrolling past everything looking at the pictures of guitars, noting that they did not seem very interesting, and then opening up a text file in which I keep the bb code for images of the BEST GUITAR EVER and pasting that in to a reply.

The guy who owns my favourite guitar shop actually has that guitar (not for sale though). The trigger is the pickup switch. I had kindof been hoping it would light off some fireworks or something but I guess that's good enough.

Zakk Wylde Signature Les Paul Electric Guitar - Bull's Eye


Will set you back about $4,000.

i agree with every part of this post.  this guitar kicks the shit.

also, if anyone has ever seen FLCL, (and i know its just a cartoon but...) the main character naota has a pretty sick guitar at the end of the show, right when he turns into atomsk.  I forget what they called it and don't have time to look it up.  but i am sure somebody knows.

Also, Slash had a pretty sweet Gibson back in the day if anyone can remember.

A Languedoc.
Nice to know he's making them for the general public these days.
But the pricetag is a bit of a turn off.

And, this Conklin.

Melted tops melt my face.

Although, if i were into the whole extended-range bass thing, I'd be killing for this Conklin, known as the "pac bass"

It belongs to jean baudin, hes the man.

Sorry if my pictures are a bit big, if anyone has a problem ill go and resize them.

Yeah, extended-range basses tend to move out of the bass range.
But he pretty much does alot of tapping,
Search youtube for "jean baudin" or "11 string mario" and you'll see it.

His myspace page has some nice music too. He gets almost piano like tones.

I've got a love-hate relationship with my guitar. It's a 70s era Epiphone Genesis, which is basically just a cheap Les Paul knockoff with pickup switching and two cutaways. It's sweet, but I got it used, and the previous owner wore out the hardware like you wouldn't believe. Now the strings go out of tune almost immediately after I tune them, or at least shortly after I start playing.  :?

But even so, I like it.

I didn't string it the way they did. It's tuned DADADx. I use it to make dissonant noises and feedback, by hitting and strumming. The frets are redundant of course, but I basically have two guitars in one because the drum stick acts as an artificial bridge, so the strings above and below make different noises. So no strumming per se, occasionally one strum of the strings or moving a slide or something up and down it, but it's mostly feedback and hitting the strings with a drumstick.

that bottom one there, looks like it could be pat metheny's pikasso guitar.

its a harp guitar,

so while you can play the main guitar neck normally, the rest acts as a harp.

they are tuned to different scales. so that you can strum and have a chord play or whatever.

if you want to hear what it sounds like, check out the song "into the dream" of the imaginary day album.
