  • Alder is pretty bright, the DD might be a poor choice. I run 2 springs in everything now.

    • I like the DD a lot, but it seems to have lost the mids which made it good have good Van Halenish mids I guess what mean is it used to sound good on chords and such and it made me play a different way/style, but now it seems like more of a chug machine like all of my other guitars which is what I didn't want to happen.





      You know, I NEVER thought about the stupid springs, all I know is the guitar made me play like a 80s shred master, which in turn killed my wrist. I figured it was the neck profile, but for whatever reason tuning it down helped. There were some threads later on where people were complaining about Charvels feeling stiff and hurting wrists... seems like it all lead back to springs.



      So, you run 2 springs? No problems with that? I don't think I have ever done that, but it may work...



      Makes me wonder if that was part of the problems I had with Ibanez RGs years ago since I bought many of them new...

        How low does the guitar hang on you? I can't play mine low...it has to be up some. Maybe that is contributing to your wrist issue?

            I play all my guitars except the V pretty high. Not quite Tom Morello high, but decently high.

                  Nope. My picking hand is usually about 1"-2" above my belly button....

                      Nothing too crazy. Maybe a 20 degree angle or something.



                      That is one reason why the V throws me off, because I keep it much lower and at a much higher angle. That is one reason I dont play it much.

                      • I keep the body low, but my neck at a big angle. My V did that perfect.

                          Yeah, that is the perfect angle for like V's, Les Pauls, and Explorers and such. Strat style guitars feel weird to me like that.

                            I keep the body a bit higher - pinky is at the belly button - and the neck is prob 30 degrees...when I play sitting. Standing, the neck is not quite as high - maybe 25 degrees??

                                Are you talking what I want, or what I have?



                                If it's what I have, check the sig.



                                If it's what I want.....since my daughter is singing in a band, prob a PA of some sort - the Bose is a NICE setup...AND quite loud. I already have an SM57 coming for her vocals.



                                For me....I think that Yamaha TRH 10 is quite cool...



                                Nothing else on the radar...



                                What about you guys?
