Looking like a PRS lol...
Wow! Just the neck alone!
I personally prefer plain Customs, but I definitely respect the flamey ones lol.
Can't afford a Gibson, so I got this one instead. My best guitar, without a doubt.
It sounded great, but the D string was constantly irksome because of the break angle at the nut. I tried three different nut materials, all cut *perfectly*, to no avail. Basically, the same problem I’ve had with every Gibson. And it’s never the G string for me; I can always get that to glide freely through a [properly-cut] nut. For me, it’s the D string; I think because the round-wound string and greater tension increases the coefficient of friction (vs. the G).
Anyway, I sold it (both that I’ve owned, actually). I vastly prefer my upgraded Epi LP. The less-severe break angles make it FAR more stable. You can do the Heartbreaker behind-the-nut bend on that guitar and it comes back into tune every time.
My Edwards is my #1 guitar and though I've always wanted an "authentic" one, my buddy has a wine red custom that sounds like crap, especially for the money he paid. I'd have to find the right one (silver burst or wine red or black) and play it before buying.
My 07 Edwards:
Love, love my LP Custom. As a kid in the 70’s, Mick Ronson totally changed my world. I still think him playing that blonde custom is the coolest thing I have ever seen.
Took a while to find this one, but it is an amazing guitar.
Life time BB fan, currently still have 2 - One keep it stock, the other was converted to Ace Frehley black LP (with the help from another Kiss fan named @Ron Thorn many years back).
Anyone tried changing the pickups and liked them more than stocks?
Here's my 77. Born Wine red, now Cherry Sunburst. Kinda Heavy, but it's a lovely guitar.
According to the guy who sold me the R7, there’s a pair of DiMarzio 36th Anni p/ups in it; I haven’t pulled them out to check but the guitar sounds spectacular.
Really enjoy playing mine.
Bridge pickup on 10, middle pickup on 7-ish - sounds amazing - especially through a Supro.
And she weighs in at a comfortable 7.5 pounds.
With a healthy dose of mid-life crisis. Inadvertently wound up with a hair-metal motif.
(quasi-Whitesnake collection-- Bernie Marsden sig, John Sykes sig, and an RG655 playing the part of Steve Vai's JEM).
I really don’t like stock CU pups - 498/490. They kinda OK for hardrock/metal, but to me cleans on them are rather stiff and lifeless. Anything else sounds better to me. And I like almost all other Gibson’s pups.
I like my Custom with a Floyd - Axcess? Nay!
It’s also kitchen worktop fretboard, but I don’t much care
I recently owned an EDWARDS white Flying V MIJ guitar and it was awesome! Unfortunately, I had to sell it to pay some medical expenses.
I just bought a 2018 Gibson Flying V and love that too but the neck on the EDWARDS was the best.
EDWARDS make amazing guitars
I own both a 73 and a 89 LPC as well as a Burny copy. Plugged into a Marshall, or something similar, they are the classic hard rock sound. They are not everything to everyone but they are great guitars.
Love mine just wish it were a bit lighter.
I'm in total love with my Edwards LPC, after changing the pickups and adding in a treble bleed circuit, it's really as close to perfect as any guitar I've owned. It never needs much of an adjustment with the seasons, stays in tune, plays flawlessly with no buzz with the action low enough for me, and sounds like a great LP. On top of that, it's lightweight and has just enough low end to get mean and not overbearing. The only other thing I would be adding with a Gibson is a name brand. I love my real Gibson too but it's not as refined as the Edwards.
black, no sugar*
Black, two par's, and an all mahogany body.
