Hey isn't that identical to the other Jag at the top of this page?
Yeah, I thought it was a bit of a weird coincidence given they're not exactly the most popular guitars.
Whats all the knobs and switches do ?
This explains it better than I can:

Cheers, the neck on it is amazing!
The first guitar I bought myself, an LTD AX-250. Has a nice warm sound because of the EMGs, but, having played many guitars since, I've decided I don't really like the feel of it anymore. I've got the action as low as it will go but the bridge still feels like it's keeping my hand from doing what I want to do. Very light body but a very laminated, plasticy feel. Also the pointy bits keep digging into my ribs
It has been signed by all members of Immortal though, so there's that.
I think I'll put some fatter strings on it, keep it in a drop-something tuning and just use it for silly nothing-above-the-seventh-fret style chugging.
My beautiful Prestige RGR1570 in suede black. All future guitar purchases will be measured against this one, but it's set the bar pretty high. First guitar I really sat down to adjust the action to be 100% where I want it and it feels amazing now. A really thin neck is something I can't do without now.
All solid Artwood 3000 is the warmest sounding acoustic I've ever played. Absolutely amazing sound, and the neck is just that little bit slimmer than most acoustics, so you can bust out some faster electric-style playing much easier.
My next guitar purchase (which, sadly, won't be in my finaces' forseeable future) will be a custom build, most likely by ET Guitars. I want to give a seven string a go, and I want to design a body somewhere between ESP's Horizon III and Forest GT models. After playing the absolutely amazing Ibanez RG35070Z I would want to get the 7 string versions of DiMarzio's Tone Zone and Air Norton pickups to go in it.
Nevermore, you like the Artwood? Ibanez did some serious work on them for 2011 and they are absolutely beautiful guitars. Did you also try the AW3050 (cedar all solid)?
Picked up this from ChrisH earlier today.
Not sure if I've posted pics of these, but I've had them for a while...
I got mine in 2010 so I don't know how they're different now, but the AW3000 is the nicest acoustic I've played. It really sounds and feels awesome. No I haven't played the 3050, but I imagine it would be pretty similar to mine and thus equally good.
My KxK Baritone 7 (now with BKP Painkillers in bridge/neck):
I ordered a guitar to be built for me by a company called gordon-smith guitars in the UK. (aaron barrett from reel big fish plays the same model guitar). I got the email saying it is finally finished being built. This guitar is hand made by John Smith, his wife handles the paperwork side of things. It is beautiful, i cant wait till it arrives and i can play it. This pic was taken just before it was packed to be sent to me. Ill post more pics once it finally arrives

This my first post on OCAU so I thought I'd introduce my little darling Sophia.
She is a PRS/gibson double cutaway hybrid from LAG. I've replaced all the pots and the toggle switch. It's still wired in an standard 3 way setup. I've moved the tone control to the top because it's the one I fiddle with the most. volume's had to moved so they correspond with the correct pickup.
I play a lot of Jazz and Fushion and I'd like to put a high gain dimazio (for some Gambale-esque solos) in the bridge and a warmer (possible even a wide single coil) in the neck.
Has anyone ever tried a configuration like this? I never have the selector in the middle and I usually have D'Addario flat wounds on it.
Thought of trying a gibson p94 in the neck? that would cover the single coil thing. yeah lots of people have done the single coil neck humbucker in the bridge thing. my jaguar has just that, a seymour duncan hot rails in the bridge and the stock fender jag pickup in the neck
