My local pawn shop had this exact same guitar plus three other custom shop ESP's last summer. This is the only one that interest me but they wanted 2G for it. Not a bad price for what it is but I can't drop that kind of money on a bolt-on.
Love Lynch's playing but not a fan of his tone. Just too mushy and muddy to me. So much of what he does is lost in the mudd.
Big Dokken fan and love Lynch his style and his tone big time. He's one of my biggest/top influences for sure, one of the best of the best in my books. Never did care for the looks of his Kamikaze guitars though but love his Yellow and Sunburst Tiger's and the Skull & Snakes to bits. Would love to own all 3.
they should release other guitars with this headstock...
Hey, just my opinion. Like I said just don't care for the mushy especially in the low end strings.
Sounds like he is using too much distortion either on his Amp or with his pedal. I've seen him three times without Dokken and a lot of the time his guitar was lost in the mix.
Live, on albums, or both?
Some 80s stuff was imho recorded just horribly for album versions...
There is a nice signed Yellow Tiger for sale on CL around here.
On that demo, I agree completely. It just didn't have the clarity of typical Lynch playing.
As for that guitar, the only feature about it that I like is the 1 and 3/4" neck width at the nut. I am comfortable with any neck that's Gibson standard width (1 and 11/16" at the nut) or wider. On an experimental basis I've made guitars with necks as wide as TWO INCHES at the nut. (My acoustic archtop has the 2" wide neck. I find it to be supremely comfortable.) The rest of that build spec doesn't light my fire. Particularly not the heavy maple body.
If I were looking for a classic 80s style guitar for my collection, I'd be looking for a USA made Jackson, or certain Hamer models. (Steve Stevens models)
This year I didn't fancy many guitars from ESP/LTD, they have some nice eclipse and that's about it for me... Its a good thing so I don't feel bad not being able to buy
I was listening to Hair Nation earlier on the way to the grocery store, and they played The Hunter (they actually play a lot of Dokken on there) ... and seriously, I've always loved his tone on those Dokken albums.
George Lynch was associated with the same SIR amp Slash tried to borrow , supposed grail tone . The story is old but there is some history there.
never have seen what people see in this guy.
i like his guitars though. he sure as hell helped
ESP come to market. wish they would have stayed
with the better quality of yester year than the stuff
they put out today for the most part.
I had one of these - it was pretty heavy but the note articulation with decent amounts of gain (80s rather than modern metal) was excellent. The slightly wider neck was great, too. The rest of the guitar... I never gelled with. Hated the paint job.
Pretty rare, too, which made it hard to find when I wanted one and hard to sell when I'd had enough!
I'd love those features with more conventional HH pickups and no trem.
If I ever decide to get off my high horse and build guitars with bolt-on necks, I could build something like that, any way you can imagine it.
Actually it wouldn't offend my principles to build it in a set neck version. I'm just so used to pretty flamed and quilted maple tops and carved tops,
that to go back to a flat slab body would be quite an adjustment for me.
My own experience tells me that weight does not = sustain. I can show you six pound guitars that sustain all day and eleven pound guitars that sustain like a dead fish,
and I can show you sustainless 6 pounders and 11 pounders that'll hold a note all day.
Wow look at the white hair, he's an old man! But I'm a fan of that old man!
I have one. Love the 25.5 scale.
One of the most badass guitars ive ever had in 40 years.
beautiful guitar. no 2 ways about it.
^ Aesthetically, it's not for me (I bought mine despite the paint job!). I prefer his tiger ESP. Never tried one though.
