We can tell Rahul has been getting into Poison lately can't we. :lol:

Vic, actually the number is status quo as I gave my ash SX Strat to ThunderFingers last week. He couldn't seem to put it down. Just put some 11's with a wound G on it for him and he loves it. His bass playing fingers can't deal with my 9's. Oh, the number is 20+ though.

I bet that tortoice buys you something real nice Ric for spoiling her like that. You see, shhhhhhhhhhhhh! (TR wispers) The cat didn't really buy the guitar ....... I did. :wink: :lol:

Actually have to be careful. I'm telling everyone my cat bought me a guitar and then yesterday I looked out the window and there was a skunk in my driveway rummaging through the remains of the previous nights BBQ. His fur was funny, only had the white stripe on his head. He was into a beer can someone had left out there so now I'm telling people about the skunk with a mokawk that drank my beer. :lol: People are like "Are you sure they didn't give you any pain killers?"

Oh yeah, Father's Day is coming up! I can tell Mrs. R. that "Zelly bought it for me!" :mrgreen:

And I'm glad to hear confirmation of the old saying "Drunk as a skunk."

Here is a little demo of the guitar. It hurts to do a lot of things with my right hand but holding a guitar pick doesn't seem to be one of them. I broke some spaghetti to cook it yesterday and let out a howl. Pulling paper towels out of a dispenser hurts too and writing smarts a little. Reaching in the pants pocket kills too but picking my guitar .... not much problem. I'm lucky!

Very nice, TR!

What's your impression between this guitar's tone and your Epis?

Wow! Good video. I can't imagine how it all worked out or led to this. You should try to get more injuries, at least a dog bite. 8)

I think the tone is a little brighter Roy, otherwise very similar. The neck feels identical to me. I love it. A lot lighter too.

It's easy BlueJay. I just need to let the cat out again. He is a house cat so when he got out by accident he freaked out and turned into a wild animal on me. As nice as the guitar is I'll pass though cause it did hurt alot and 48 hours in a hospital room isn't much fun. Oh, and we already got a DogBite here. :lol:

The bite is on the middle finger knuckle of my picking hand. It is 100% better but you can see in the video it is still a little red with a lump.

Lighter weight for sure.

I remember less mud in the neck and maybe a brigther, but mellower bridge.

Thanks for this. I was unsure how much I remembered before I swapped pickups. I did some ART100 w/P90 vs Epi A/B testing and it was a big difference. Two different guitars, so I was unsure of how to weigh that factor. I'm cetainly not going to swap them out twice more for proper comparison. :roll:

Nice sounding (and looking) axe.

I see that your music gear has outgrown the man cave, and is now encroaching on the house! :lol:

Well, that's actually the home office area so thats where the desk top computer is. I record there so I have the E drums and my 15 watt practice/recording amp there. I just thought it would make a nice change of scenery for the video.

I have been hearing of 3 or 4 cat bite and scratch incidents lately, and everyone got seriously infected. What's up with that? Do they all have serious bacteria - is there no way to get lucky, and get a clean wound? Strange occurrences? :shock:

Cat bites are always very likely to get infected. Cats usually carry Pasteurella multocida in their mouths. Bad stuff to get injected into your tissues. Especially into joint spaces and tendon sheaths.

As for scratches, well, you know they do poop in the dirt and cover it up by scratching dirt over it...

Did some checking on the Pasteurella multocida and it says you can get them from a lick from a pet also. i would assume they'd have to lick an open wound or something cuz my dogs lick me all the time, not the cat so much...but then again she doesn't buy me any guitars either, all she's good for is crying for Tuna and sleeping.
