PostForum: Effects, Amps & Gear, Pedal Building   Posted: Sat Feb 28, 2009 11:22 am   Subject: Guitar synths?
Been realizing lately that I like the concept of a synth, but having more of an adeptness with the fretboard than the keys...

Particularly, the Roland GR-20 interests me, as it seems to be the one ...

We'll see about the intonation... frankly it could never intonate properly with the 22" neck either, so if it's still slightly off... I'm no further ahead or behind. It' measures precisely 12&quo ...

...Non-reverse Firebirds are, IMO, among the ugliest guitars in creation. Original Firebirds, with the original magnet-poled minihums, are cool, if ridiculous and hard as fuck to play.

People tend toward just wrapping them with electrical tape, but I've never found it necessary... Especially on the Mustang.

Alternatively, you can raise the bridge and shim the neck to increase the break angle, which will stop string jumping by some minute amount...

The Jag/JM trem is stable enough even without disablin ...

At this rate, there's no reason really to buy a new RI over something relatively vintage Confused

Not really, the frets close in much more on a short scale and the difference in width is 3mm. It may not sound a big deal but it is.
I can certainly feel a difference to the point it changes the way ...

Also occurs to me... On a shorter scale, with strings already being more noodly, a smaller radius probably doesn't limit bending as much as it would on say a Strat...

With my current setup, I'd still have to raise the bridge and shim the neck to fit a mute even placed for aesthetic reasons.

Honestly? I'm glad Fender keeps/kept them on the heel.

I wonder how many idiots have been thwarted from messing with them unnecessarily by not having them there accessible, tempting them.

I hate the way my Jag looks without a mute.

That said, I don't want to deal with fucking with the setup and drilling into it to get one.
