    The future of guitars...

    Sure, if you insist to shout to the world that you're a snob, playing a Teuffel guitar is the way to go. They are about 10.000 euro each... Cheers, Adrian.

    Homemade Guitars.

    This one is made from narra, a paduk like wood that grows only in the Philippines which is were I made it. This is a ergonomical guitar with a twisted neck and a single adjustable pickup. It's a joy to play. Cheers, Adrian.

    Anyone tried a twisted neck?

    I like to dig into the strings and hate fretbuzz. It kills sustain and attack. I'm sure I can set it up lower but that's not my to my liking. I'm not a shredder anyway. I built guitars that suit me. I don't use knobs for instance so I leave them away. I'm just a simple bedroom player. They are...

    Anyone tried a twisted neck?

    Action is low as normal. 1.75 mm at high E-string and 2.15 at low E-string. Radius 7,5". Since I am used to it, other guitars feel a bit awkward. I will built a normal version as well. Thinking about a twisted strat with the body twisting as well. Cheers, Adrian. Cheers, Adrian.

    Designed a guitar, now I'm going to protect it

    Let me have a guess... Your guitar has a bridge, a nut, 6 strings, 21 to 24 frets, 2 or three pickups, a body and a neck. These things have all been designed by other people and they didn't bother to protect their intellectual property so you can build your guitar without anyone hassling you...

    Curious about exotic & unfinished neck woods

    Is this exotic enough ? I made it at the Philippines during my stay there. It is made of Narra. Narra is a paduk like wood that grows only on the Phillippines. It's stable and stiff. I treated it with danish oil and has an excellent feel. Don't know if Warmoth has it on stock though...

    Why is oak not used in guitars?

    My experience with oak is that it has a lot of inner tension. I you have a perfectly straight shelf and saw it lengthwise in half you end up having 2 banana shaped pieces. No oak guitar for me. Cheers, Adrian.

    Why aren't s single coils twice as cheap as humbuckers ? Is it because we are stupid enough to pay the same amount of money for it? Cheers, Adrian.

    A Ibanez JEM555 Steve Vai for $280, can that be true?

    The highest frets are not scalloped so they must be fake. They are good fakes though with all the inscriptions and all. Thanks for the advice. Ba-bay, Adrian.

    A Ibanez JEM555 Steve Vai for $280, can that be true?

    Hi there! I am at the Philippines at the moment and saw 2 good looking Ibanez JEM555 Steve Vai for about $280. List price is about $1200. I played them a while and they seemed alright but I am absolutely no expert. Can this be a real JEM555 or will it be an imitation. Ba-bay, Adrian.

    In what way does a hollow guitar sound different from his solid twin?

    If you say the sound is a bit thinner does that mean there is more high in it and less bass? Groeten, Aad.

    In what way does a hollow guitar sound different from his solid twin?

    In what way does a hollow guitar sound different from his solid twin? What exactly changes to the sound if a solid body guitar gets hollow spaces in it and does it matter if there are openings in the body (f-shaped holes for instance). Um abraço, Adriano.
