    for strat2 (you da man)
    but you say ...sound files sound different through different systems, so am I to not trust what I heard ?

    I see what your trying to say (understandable BTW:>)) and maybe I should have been more clear or politicaly correct in my response...so here it goes..

    Sound clips are honest assements of a general sound no matter who or what is playing or being used. Are you going to sound the same as any soundclip you hear online if you buy that item? Probably not. There are many variables that go into this where a guitar or a guitar pickup is concerned...

    For example:
    The player and thier individual teqnique and style, all the way to thier rig, setup, and pedals if any and even the differences in hearing those said sound files in different computer speakers to the way it was recorded!

    So these as most if not all other soundfiles no matter what they are for would be a general assesment of the overal sound that you can get of that particular item.

    Is it the only sound, best sound or prefered sound? Of coarse not and also a matter of opinion on the latter 2. (Which I really cant dive into):>)

    Our test amp (KUSTOM 212 Coupe) was set flat and the gain was roughly @ about 60. There was much more room to drive it if needed. But thats another video and studio session!

    For your other questions:

    I did a GC and MF search can't find the guitar.

    These are avaialbe in GC stores only! Not online...So a search and or MF would not help you in your quest...

    Scale length = 24 3/4
    upper Bout = Roughly 9/34"
    lower bout = Roughly 13"
    thickness = 2 1/8
    finish options = Natural Only
    tuners =Grover

    Thanks again and hope this helps!

      "politicaly correct" ?

        It was in reference to the sound files in my first response and earlier in the thread. This is where I possibly should have explained more clearly and with more detail to hit all points.

        With all the variables involved that go into recording any particular sound file, I thought it was common knowledge that any sound file created was not to be the "end all be all", but a starting point to showcase the versatility or sound of any particular item. This assumption, on my part was not the "correct" thing to do and I should have explained better.

        For when you’re talking tone, it’s a personal preference for all of us, and our settings and sound files it might not be for you...

        But that doesn’t mean that our instrument won’t do what you need it to do or sound the way you want it to sound...

        Next time... I will read and explain more thoroughly.

        Great Job Strat2 and thanks….

          I have a couple questions regarding the intonation of this instrument:

          1) What string guage is the guitar intonated for (since there are not adjustable bridge saddles)? I thought I read somewhere that it is optimized for light "10" guage strings, which is fine for me.

          2) When looking at photos of the bridge, it appears as though the compensation is set up for a wound "G" string. I don't know this for sure, having not played one of these beauties yet, but I have never encounted a set of light-guage strings with a wound "G" and I was wondering how the intonation holds up when playing chords on the higher frets.

              Hello Jon,
              It's been over a week since you posted. I would like your honest take on the magnetic pickup placement, since WE only get to check these out at GC for a few minutes without our own rigs.
              Maybe with some clips.

                Include amp / pedals where applicable, If you get the time.

                A guit that can give clean Acoustic , and even three or four
                of these :

                Dokken , Scorpions, Ratt, Priest,EVH,
                Triumph,Rhoads,White Snake...

                Actually I wouldn't need to match even one of these, just
                a loose blend of any combination would work fine, as a ball park starting point,
                (Nugent would definetly not be a starting point for my use).

                You don't need to play leads at all if you don't like to, we can
                definetly tell by a few power chords and general clunk clunk....

                A guit that can give good Acoustic as well as useable 80's
                metal is something I need bad.

                Thanks for the scale length and dimensions....

                  The Hybrid Guitar comes Stock with D'Addario EXL110 model strings.
                  These are lights (.010 - .046) and it is not a wound G. The saddle is compensated @ the "B"

                  There has not been nor was there an issue with the intonation on the Hybrid at any point.

                  Also, none of the test players or Tech's that worked on the design had any comments or problems with this area.

                  I can see though that in the upper register there might be some minor areas of concern since the Hybrid is set up like an acoustic guitar.... However, I have not had or heard of any issue...

                      Sorry Strat2... dont have any extra clips a this time and wont for a while. I am in the process of recording some, (personal only) but none as of yet. Using this alot live right now.

                      However, if you think about the difference you would get with what you hear on the current files recorded with a 212 Kustom Coupe set flat with the gain section only at 60 to 80 roughly, there is much more room to play with compared to a high gain amp like a triple rectifier. Even with some pedals as you mentioned using... there is more room to do what ayone needs...I know this cant help your ears right now...but stay tuned for more on those. Just trying to help!

                        Ok..maybe its me..I think the pickup should be .000756 millimeters more towards the bridge myself...but Im fussy that way..... I guess Im a little more concerned right now about if I hammer on/off and play it like a guitar will get played...will the neck stay on?...in tune(sort of)?....switches wont fall out after 30 swipes...that kind of nuts and bolts stuff.............the tone thing is totally subjective to the player, all good points to be sure...but no-one has said if this is a well made guitar or not..........I for one would like to know........perhaps the kelly line is one of those "givens" that I missed....construction is huge to me......

                          Thanks Todd ,

                          Yea if it works out down the road that would be cool, this guit is
                          a ways off for me as there are no local stores, probably have to
                          wait and order one online when they become available.
                          I have an idea tight, defined overdrive will be there, just trying to
                          get a heads up on it.....

                            Thanks for the question....
                            The construction is very solid and has been mentioned prior in the initial review and on the site. However, to re-iterate:

                            Specially chambered solid Mahogany Body
                            Mahogany Neck
                            Rosewood Board
                            Set neck
                            Laminated Flame Maple Top
                            Custom Fishman Blender
                            Rockfield SWC Custom Humbucker


                            So.....the neck wont fall off... promise. :>)

                            The one thing that people have mentioned besides how good The Hybrid sounds is how solid it is. Its a guitar players guitar and feels like one! Its not your grandma's Tea cup!

                            There shouldnt be any worries here. Go to the site and check it out...

                            These are also only available @ Guitar Center so check them out there too! Take care!

                                hey, i was impressed by one of your guitars at gc today. the only concern i have, is that i would probably be using it with my cranked orange ad30htc and a mesa 4x12. how does the guitar handle situations in terms of annoying feedback in live situations... thanks.
