This is hilarious! I have to say though, I`d take the first one as I love 1 humbucker guitars and Kahler Pros. I`d hit it-but not look at it :mrgreen:

Just put a bag over its head(stock).....or maybe a bag over yours.

On sale now on Wee!verb. Don't all bid at once, it's an ESP w EMG pup. In terms of the idea and the execution it's semi cool. In terms of the reality of actually playing it, it's a big ol NOPE.

It's an active tune-o-matic succubus.

Also, the X guitar was something MAB did, and would rotate the guitar upside down and whatnot. I'm not sure if they were all tuned the same, but it's in the Nitro music video "another freight train," I think, for the solo section. Probably not the most comfortable guitar design ever, as it used a neck strap and single button. I wonder if it had strap locks.

He was the lead guitarist for the Los Angeles-based glam metal band Nitro in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Don't feel bad. I know two things about him. His name, and the weird multi-neck guitars. :lol: I could look up the music, but i can't think of any from my own memory without being reminded.

I heard of him years ago for his "speed kills," video, or whatever it was called. Skinniest guy wearing a Gold's Gym thank top, shredding on some 34 fret (or thereabouts) guitar, and then doing his double neck thing. He honestly kind of inspired me to play ambidextrously, but aside from that, I don't keep up with him.

I never took a class, but I assume it has to do with the fact that I'm within the last couple of years of what's considered "Gen X" that Prince Albert tobacco was never a thing we were exposed to outside of old people and Popsicle sticks telling the " Do you have Prince Albert in a can? Then you'd better let him out!" joke. It's always been the penile piercing, to me.

Um, wrong thread quote? :applause: :?

EDIT: This is making me laugh to the point of tears, in the middle of my desk job, in a quiet room. Trying to keep it down isn't helping. Spud, you should comment in this thread instead, it'll be a bit more sequitur: viewtopic.php?p=639310#p639310
