... but hot damn, I had to post it anyway
I was going to post something snarky, but then I realized, that, other than the purfling, I really like how that looks. I fear for my sanity
that's pretty ... pretty pretty at least to me.
I do like the way the flame inlays on the neck look like they're shooting from the dragon's mouth
Looks beautiful. I wonder how it sounds and plays?
It's a beautiful work of art. I too wonder how it plays and sounds. Too garish for me.
You know what would have been cool? No inlay on the fingerboard, a less figured top wood, but keep one of the dragons.
Whoa.... I just realized there is only one dragon. Make it smaller......
I love guitars that catch someones eye! This one does. Stunning! It makes me wonder why so many artist use such plain guitars. People love to see things that they cant see everyday. Take Porter Wagoners cloths - Like him or not most poeple remember the threads he had.
I like the back.
haha. ott is an understatement. what brand is this?
GMW Empire Custom
That is the guitar Jack Butler should have had in "Crossroads".
The only thing i don't like is the thick purfling that GMW tends to use on their Empire bodies and headstock, i much prefer the thinner purfling like Ron Thorn uses
....other then that i really like it...
That's an incredibly beautiful guitar! I know Lee's guitars and I'm sure it plays great too.
I have a custom Les Paul that Lee Garver (GMW) made for me 10 years ago, and it's my favorite guitar - plays, sounds and feels superb. I posted a few pics of it last year and Ron Thorn recognized the inlay work he had done on it. I had no idea he did that work on my guitar.
I like it, although it looks like an add for the Kung Fu channel.
Now if I could get a "Zaotoichi, blind swordsman" version I'd consider getting one.
If you were at the local open jam w/ that thing eveyone would mutter "douchebag" under their breath, at last I would..lol
