    Yes, but it's basswood.

    Right! Tool Live DVD, I’m still waiting for that one.....:waiting

    This guitar will be 10k, if it comes with the mirror. I’m guessing limited only and no epiphone. Gibson already did a couple silver burst runs, customs and standard models in the past.

    Ah, another guitar “legend” who isn’t widely known. Yeah, right.

    I will buy it if 1. they get the bridge pickup correct as per AJ's tone and 2. the neck is not thin

    Adam came and visited us a few months back at the Custom Shop. It was the first time he saw the prototypes. He was incredibly cool and even signed my Tool Salival box set. He also took a picture with anyone who wanted one. He was very happy with the guitars.

    Anyway, they are really cool guitars and I'll be seeing them come across my bench as production ramps up.

    I'm gonna keep baby Hitler first but sure, plenty of confederates and the likes. , I'm down for going after all sorts of baby fascists...then again, all babies are little fascists in a way so that might keep me busy for awhile.

    I feel like this going after babies, particularly sons may have been done before? So maybe I'll focus on a different path. Maybe I'll just hide a secret message in all of the 59 Les Pauls so that once Joe Bonamassa has them all, if he puts them together in the correct sequence it'll decode a vault of unreleased Tool albums so it'll be exciting and ultimately disappointing like all treasure quests.

    i dunno about exact sales numbers, but they have sold awfully many records considering how little they consider the expectations of their audience or record label. Seems like if they are going to do something, they do it on their terms. This is a discussion board presumably for musicians alike so I wonder why some of the folks came here to express their dislike towards Tool. You dont have to understand nor appreciate their music, but atleast they are doing music for the right reasons. Why dont you appreciate fellow musicians doing that? Makes me think if some of the members here are not musicians but only music gear owners.

    I appreciate their attitude, but cant still feel a bit annoyed by the fact that they reached their creative peak on Aenima, which was followed (soon after) Lateralus which still was epic in some many ways, but the longer they have spent between albums, the less they’ve created. Somehow Maynard managed to save partly the 10k days, but on their last effort, even Maynard seems that he’s given up and lowered the bar both musically and lyrically.

    From the article:

    ""I still use just the original Seymour Duncan Super Distortion pickups. I buy those up whenever I see an old one from the '90s.""

    Exactly... and Tool seems to be extremely popular with the comp engineer/tech industry guys in their 30's, who will absolutely buy this and have the money to do so.

    This is an unusually correct artist move for gibby.

    I'll be shocked if an epi version doesn't come out in a few years as well now, getting anyone in tool out of the 90's anti-establishment mindset was the real hurdle here.

    Every metallic finish, including goldtops, have "metal flakes". They're aluminum, and not magnetic. If you want to experiment with your own guitar, tape a coke can to your guitar to see how it influences the sound. A coke can has about 100x more aluminum in it than the average metal flake finish.

    Exactly. And you reminded me of this, my 2nd favorite song after Aenima....I don't know how anyone could not like Tool after hearing this:
