Would love to get my hands on a Les Paul Studio at some point, the price has recently been lowered in Denmark, so I am very tempted.
Thanks!

I used to have a flametop sunburst Epiphone LP back in the day... but wanted something non-standard looking this time around. The 'standard' maple top is a nice change of pace over flame or quilt.

When I start playing more, I'll probably start thinking about getting another flame top guitar.... the Dark Fire has caught my eye in particular

Video: Gibson Dark Fire guitar hands-on - Engadget @ CES.

Pretty cool tech... Love the way when he changes profile, the tuning pegs unwind/wind to change (part of) the tone!

Somehow I feel (after last nights documentary) that it has over complicated a simple design, and a timeless classic... What do you all think?

Watch the vid, its worth it.

The Dark Fire IMO is more of a Live Gig guitar where guitarists have to change the tone and tuning on-the-go. Other than that, I don't see a point of having this technology if you're gonna sit in front of your stack and tweak the sound from there.

Heck. I wanna do this mod. It's cheaper!

You don't need a pricey rig to just play and have fun, your rig looks up to the task. Just last night I fooled around with multitracking for the first time by checking out Garageband on my Macbook. Simple chain - Tele to amp to mic to Mac (via apogee duet). Added some reverb and chorus from garageband to help the tracks mesh a bit and voila!

YouTube - Jumping Someone Else's Train - The Cure Cover - Apogee Duet Multitrack Demo

All the levels aren't blended smooth like Brian Eno would do, but I tried to stay true to the lo-fi mixing done on the original early Cure track. Oh, and to monitor I used the workmanlike AKG K81DJ from the Duet's headphone out. Nice portable little workstation, and you can add an attenuator and Direct I/O box if you need to do this in absolute silence, instead of using a Mic.

Great stuff Jahn! You don't need a complex rig to have good sound indeed.

That Dark Fire is an abomination of the Les Paul name. I don't know what Gibson's thinking.
post #128 of 650
Yeah, it's kinda cool what you can do IMHO, but ultimately I agree.

It's not too bad style wise... I wouldn't call it an abomination of the Les Paul name. I would save that title for every single one of these new lightened chambered guitars they're calling Les Pauls. A les paul should be a solid heavy slab of mahogany.

If it doesn't weigh as much as a boat anchor it ain't a Les Paul...

I'm finally ready to share my completed version of a "metal" Devil Went Down To Georgia.

Youtube: YouTube - The Devil Went Down To Georgia (Shreddin it up)

MP3 download: http://mark.hayden31.com/music/01%2...o%20Georgia.mp3


Tracked the drum and bass in FL Studio, all lead parts were done on the electric violin, vocals done by my roommate.

Let me know what you think!

That was cool.

I play a cheap Schecter Damien 6 paired with some random 40 dollar amp. Headphone gear takes all my money . Wish I had a Gibson SG.
post #135 of 650
Just bought a cheap Schecter Omen-7 to add a 7-string to the collection. Picked up a Seymour Duncan JB for the bridge and a SH-2n for the neck. Also ordered some push pull pots to add either coil tapping or series/parallel, haven't decided yet.

On a side note, the Peavey Classic 30 head I ordered the day after Christmas STILL isn't in
