    I use a Dean Dime Razor 255 V - can't get a pic on here yet, but i'll get one up soon, also use a Peavey VK100 + 4x15 quad , with a Toneworks Korg multi-effects pedal.

    I could just google and post but i'll post post a pic of the whole rig when i get home.

    Got it new from the states for $1200

    My boss was going over on a work trip so I organised to get the guitar shipped to where he was staying and he brought it back for me

    Didnt pay import tax or GST.. just a bottle of J.D as a thank you :lol:

    Very nice, it's my mate's but I might buy it off him as he now wants a PRS. Very flat radius but not an ultra skinny neck like RG's. It has a bit of meat but not chunky. I think the best decription I can give is wide flat with what feels like a cross between a d and c shape. Neck is very well fitted no gaps in the pocket, feels very solid overall. It has a sustainer in the neck but I have NFI how to use it properly. Floyd is very good quality I have to say considering this was reportedly bought for $700 new. Well worth that and I'd go up to about 1k if I was buying it new. Probably on par with the high end LTD's. Floyd LOOKS a lot like the Gotoh Floyd I bought for the Charvel I'm "refreshing". Not a real fan of the emg 81 in the bridge. If I do buy it I might swap it for a SD Livewire I have

    Fernandes make good stuff - they make some of the best LP copies going around under the brand Burny

    If he buys it i'll chuck in a case of beer which you can share

    anyone own/play a high-end gretsch? :D
    i'm thinking of getting a 6120, or a country gentleman

    A bloke I used to work with had a Tennessee Rose (I think). It was absolutely beautiful. It's not really my kind of guitar, but I can appreciate a the excellent guitar that it was.

    didn't want to create a new thread but got given a yamaha c40 guitar, went out and bought strings and just googled that it looks like it uses only nylon strings.. is it true that it can't be used with steel strings? the strings i bought are the d'addrio ej16 lights, unfortunately i already opened up the packet so dont think i can return them

    It's a classical guitar so it's meant to use nylon trebles and steel basses, but nobody's going to arrest you if you put all steel on it. I find it hard to play steel trebles because I play with my fingernails but shrug, give it a go. I don't think the extra tension etc is going to damage the guitar, unless anyone else feels strongly that it will.

    In an electric or steel string acoustic, the truss rod helps prevent the neck from bowing under the tension of the strings. Nylon string guitars typically don't have a truss rod, as they're not designed to deal with the same sort of tension.

    I've personally never tried it, but I'd imagine with time it would bow the neck to the point where it would pretty much ruin the guitar.

    Not a good idea.

    Classical guitars "not deigned" for use with steel strings. The higher tension of the steel strings will put a lot more tension on the bridge, heel and neck, then they're built to handle. You'll most likely damage the guitar.

    I've seen a neck partially separate from the body at the heel. Don't o it

    There you go, then. :) My classical does have a truss rod, but I've never put all steels on it (and wouldn't, coz it'd rip my fingernails off).
