Hard Times Means Groovy Guitar Deals …

S. Knock went and got another guitar today.  He goes off on these obsessions about a certain sound or  … things that fly or …  whatever.  Starts as interest, then obsession, then moves to snobbery rather quickly.  Some things pan out, some don’t.

This bad boy is an Ibanez Rg2ex2 (catchy eh?).  SK bought it off a  bass player who hardly touched it.  Like neeeewwww!  And with an awesome hardshell case.

And, he walked away with the whole package for, like, $180.  So jealous, except I have too many guitars already, one being a classic Ibanez Blazer (more on that later).

Anyway, SK’s obsession this time around has to do with really low tunings and super heavy strings to accommodate that.  That’s for going chucka chucka of course.

Here’s the strings: DR Strings Drop-Down Tuning Mega Heavy Guitar Strings.   I like them DR strings.  They do last a good long time.

But as usual, there are pickups to be swapped out, so we’ll have to  wait to hear what this heavy-string tuned-down-to-A noise sounds like.  Then we’ll work it into the noise, of course.  And share.

I prolifically produce music & soundtracks, videos, graphics, writes, and basic code as long as it's not baseball season. And I like it all kind of raw.
