I modify my saddles so there is a spike at 2.001Khz. I find that sounds much more musical.

2 Khz? The average upper limit of human hearing? Also a frequncy that the majority of adults can't hear?

I'm sold.

That's 20KHz d00de!
2KHz is right above 1k mids shit. it can be boosted for more aggressive guitar rock tonez.

You're right. It was the k in front of the hz that threw me. I've not done any studio work in about two years, so I've forgotten all this shit. You know, numbers an' that.

Has anyone played those strange guitars available in music stores that are made out of a synthetic material? I don't seem to remember the name. They come in strange colors and sound pretty bad.

Switch guitars they are/were called. The site is down and I believe they've stopped making them. And yes, they did look horrible.

JESUS WHY???




from the website:

" Instead of forcing the resonate energy to the outside of your guitar, the Internal Combustion Guitar's proprietary driver system gently pumps it back inside. Then our coupling mechanism redistributes the controlled energy to your strings.

Your touch sends signal to a small amp (6 watts or less) or processor combo

The small amp sends the conditioned signal back to the Internal Combustion Guitar

The Internal Combustion Guitar power driver reenergizes the now harmonically enriched and colored string tone"

All that and for what, you ask? For this.

Remember.. you don't just play this guitar.. you RIDE it... Straight into a dumpster.

Seriously now. What is UP with that fucking headstock? Looks like he wrapped it in bacon and fed it to a pack of starving cyborg TIMBERWOLVES!

...Or the profile of The Muppet's Gonzo screaming out in agony.
