No it's not. They left the frets off again!
wow...what a beauty
It's hard to tell exactly but is that the unfinished purple beauty you posted pics of a few days ago? That's one slick looking axe. Not that I'm a big Trekie but if the Star Ship Enterprise was a guitar it would look like that. :AOK
Nice clean looking guitar. I like the recessed toggle. From those photos the body shape looks almost identical to a PRS, with a thicker maple cap and the bridge pickup moved about an inch....
SWEEET! Congrats Ed. Looking forward to hearing you play it.
It's not really finished though. It's missing pickup ring screws. Demand an enormous discount
How true! The Enterprise is also fretless, and has a bridge.
Now you just need to learn to play...
Who needs to play well when I have somebody like Craig O'Donnell build me mast guitars? They play themself!
I'm sure that the omission of the 2 back PU ring screws is to drop some weight..............
ED! That's Phucken beautiful!
Notice the fret markers and the lines are on the top of the fretboard so looking down you see exactly where the frets would be.
I definately want to hear some clips of you playing that bad boy.
Holy schmokes! Damn fine guitar!!!!!!!!!!!
Gorgeous Ed. Are you bringing it to NAMM?
Damn that's sexy looking. I'm also looking forward to some clips.
Holy Schnikey's Batman.
Uh, plink on dat a bit and get back to us, 'kay? Now where's me oud....?
This might be a stupid question but how hard is it to play without Frets? I would think it would be pretty hard.
Depends...how hard is it to play any instrument without fixed pitches? It's harder than regular guitar but easier than say cello.
Acyually Craig O'Donnell is sharing our booth, so he's bringing it for me to NAMM.
I'd imagine single note stuff like solos and riffs, though challenging at first shouldn't be too tough to get used to. It's the chording I think would be the biggest learning curve, attempting to intonate a m7b5 without frets would probably put me in therapy.
