You've actually bought it? Aren't they really expensive?

11-10-2003, 14:56:00
Yep. Not REALLY expensive.

11-10-2003, 14:58:39
I'm not looking at the price on the internet in case it's way cheaper somewhere else.

11-10-2003, 15:00:50
It sounds much nicer than my current guitar and is about 20 times nicer to play.

11-10-2003, 15:02:27
It looks lovely.

11-10-2003, 15:04:47
It is. :love:

You can look later. Coming round for the football?

11-10-2003, 15:09:13
Yup. I might miss the start, but I'll be there sometime.

You should have bought the Mustang someone's selling on Berkshire Live.

Interesting shape. It looks like a Les Paul that's trying to turn into a Fender Jaguar. Nice one.

11-10-2003, 18:14:06
Pretty! Which did you get, trans black or trans blue?

11-10-2003, 18:51:45
You're asking Michael "My favourite colour is black" Hefferan remember...

11-10-2003, 19:01:14
Trans blue I think... it's kinda purpley.

11-10-2003, 19:15:17
Ha! you're wrong, Debbie! :D

Heres a pretty black strat ;)

A 5-way switch but only two pick-ups? What's all that about then?

Tis certainly a nice looking beastie anyways. Congrats :D

It varies the blend between the pickups. All bottom, mostly bottom and a bit of top, half and half etc.

13-10-2003, 21:21:07
Sounds quite clever

14-10-2003, 06:29:24
Shame about the playing. arf arf.

There was another Godin in the shop which was active and had 3 outputs. Acoustic and normal 1/4 inch jacks and a MIDI out so you could use it as a MIDI trigger for a synth or something. If that hadn't cost three times what I paid for mine maybe I'd have been interested, imagine what amazing sounds you could make with that!

Mahogany is defintely my favourite look. Quality wood!

It sounded great last night. A meaty and rounded sound. I love the Spinal Tap "homage" when you, Sam, Goatlord and Pete all gave the classic "Machine Gun" axe pose.

I was really dissapointed with the sound mix. THe drums were brilliant, real deep and thumping, bass was clear, powerful and ermm....bassy. Vocals were still ab it quiet, but I think the monitors were feedbacking too much to have cranked it up. The one major dissapointment was goatlord's. I don't think that the sound guy understand the concept of "lead guitar". His overall sound was very tinny and "blues guitar" rather than "rock lead". Some of the really nice interplay and lead breaks just did not come across. I heard them because I was expecting them, but a Sonic virgin would not have witnessed the full phenomenon. Maybe a boost foot-switch is required?

In my, admittedly limited, experience of going to local gigs the vocals are always too quiet because the feedback keeps fucking things up. Nice to know that some things are universally true.

16-10-2003, 13:38:26
This isn't really a local gig venue though, it's also a place they have touring bands. Eg Therapy? in a couple of weeks.

Someone else said something similar about the sound, oh well, at least I was loud. :)
