      That Viper prototype in Satin Sage Green is another favorite. Let's hope it makes it to production like this.

      For those who didn't see Prototype #3, here's the EC-1007 EverTune.

      Ohhh nice) I like it

      The gloss black always looks classy. I've never tried an Evertune bridge before. I wasn't sure they'd be something that would catch on, but they seem to be increasing in popularity.

        Guitar players are always hesitant to try out new technologies. We're the same way. But yes, it's taken a few years, but EverTune is definitely becoming more of a known commodity as more people have the opportunity to try them out.

        Have you had a chance to play one Jeff? What's your take?

        I never really consider myself a "bendy" type player, but the other guitarist in my band tells me I do too many bends when I solo. From what I've read, the EverTune doesn't really let you bend, it adjusts to compensate, or something?

        Dunno. I guess I'll have to find one to try.

        I’ve  played a couple of evertune equiped guitars. You can bend strings with’em you just bend a little further with the string. I noticed the bending will take a lot to get used to.

        You can adjust every string to have the opportunity to bend them or not. Every string can be adjusted individually so you can have the opportunity to bend on the bottom 4 and not on the top 2.

        Pus, I got to play with the EverTune very early on. The people who invented it talked to me about it, and I was probably in the first group of people to ever try it out. Here's the deal: there are multiple "zones" you can use to set up the EverTune based on your playing style. One of them truly allows for NO bends, and it's completely weird to try and bend a string and get no change in pitch! That's great for doing perfectly-tuned rhythm lines. However, you can set it up for other zones where bends are very much in line from a more standard bridge system.

        Interesting. I'm going to have to find one to try out. Sounds like I'll need more than just a few minutes in the store with it to see what the settings are like.

      Everything I have see, read and seen about the evertune system, really make me want a guitar with it. It just takes the hassle away with tuning everytime I want to play. Looks awesome in the EC -1007. Have to save up for one like that

      I would love to see ESP / LTD start doing something like this so that I no longer would have to take a router to my guitars...

      Stock TE-202



      Customized TE-202




      It would also be fantastic to see this model with the following:

      1. Tummy route on the back

      2. Forearm rest on the front

      3. Strat style controls and layout.

      I also changed out the pickups with Planet Tone pickups.

      You can hear this guitar here:

      TSK - Big Bad Burrito

       

      Thanks

      with so much respect I have to say I'm not digging these new prototypes (no troll, and I'm not coming back for replies, just my thoughts)

    • Pushead

      The green sparkle Steph sig is awesome. If the sparkle is anything like the silver sparkle that's on my Eclipse from a few years ago, the photos do not do it justice. It's quite striking in person.
