Man, I miss the good old days when life was so much simpler and Boss Metal Zone was like THE be-all, end-all solution to sounding like a bad ass  biggrin.gif Thinking back, I actually feel rather embarrassed about it hahaha #noob #innocence

how can u say no to that 3-band eq with parametric mid sweep? tongue.gif
just that time everyone crazy trying to do metallica tone with scooped V shit...
its too bad the black album didnt come out earlier...then maybe ppl would try to emulate that instead and maybe then learn to use the metal zone properly cool2.gif

Speaking of electric shenanigans, i had this busted adapter once upon a time, took it for one of my earliest gigs. Dengan bangganya set up my rig, plugged in my zoom 3000, flipped the switch and took out the whole damned stage with me sweat.gif sweat.gif sweat.gif man, buggers were pissed! In hindsight, the venue had some pretty shitty adhoc wiring that should have shouldered the brunt of the fault. But man, thinking back the next bands were panicking and groaning and bitching, man, that was hilarious tongue.gif

i wanted a headless, but hated the strandberg, kiesel was order only and kinda iffy, then was in BKK a week or so ago, had a look at it and thought it was not too bad, but the weak RM made me not buy it there and then

lucky tho, AA was strictly checking luggage size on the flight home

eh dont sell the Mayones, the first gen was the cheapest IIRC, thats before they went full on with them fancy stuff, i think a used Mayones also its about 6k-7k if bought on reverb

Their prices been going up year on year i noticed, then their product lines got more "upgrades"

Stringsshop is a nice place to kill time isn't it? Now that is a fun guitar shop to tinker around in. How'd u like the nazgul/sentient pup sound?

What is it about the strandberg u dont like though? Looks? Ergonomics? I'never tried one but always thought it was supposed to be like some gempak stuff all the way down to the multiscale, weird neck contour and pups and all - a solid working guitarists guitar, kinda like the PRS CE. Kiesel is....well, Kiesel la 😅

My Setius isnt a first gen, but yeah back then it was priced ok. Plus I got it at a time our currency was relatively strong so didnt hurt as much. I dont think I'll be selling it anytime soon, I've sold off everything else n now its the only working 6 string I have left 😅

yup nice place to kill, bad for GAS.

not sure if its the nazgul but the axe has a very bright "hi-def" sound, might be due to the frets cause i notice SS fret guitar tend to have that character. Ive not tried it on high gain tho cant tell much about that yet

Strandberg has the best Ergonomics in a guitar ive ever played. Hated everything else, the neck is awkward , one might argue you have to get used to it, but i cant imagine pulling a 2 stop bend with that thing in my hands.

The other thing is it feels cheap, its rather "squarish", the neck has angles, the body is not carved with rounded edges. The finish is not something that stands out. The wood they use also tends to not be "matched" nicely, like you can see the clear line and different grain patterns in the guitar below

Personally the biggest reason i hate it is the price, the strandberg boden with similar specs made in indonesia costs like 2.1k Usd, My guitar costs 2.5k usd. If its 3k -5k RM , i would sing more praise, but not for nearly RM10k.

lol dont think you should ever sell it, but yea the prices now are kinda high, only got this cause the seller agreed to free shipping from EU.

So all the newer headless guitars doesn't require double ball end strings like steinbergs? Never found that out myself
