I'm in love with this light purple GH3. I wouldn't buy it, but I'm in love with it.

I'd play each of those. Yes I would. Especially the HSH GH3.

I imagine that Vader is seriously bright?

All maple, trem, ebony board, and it looks like Lithium pickups. Yep, I'd day so. :-p

I do like the covered 7-string pickups, though. :applause:

I like the satinyness of the GH3. HSH :think: They need to do that with the Bolt, (and HH). But I guess not. :(

There's always the single-coil-sized-humbucker options, but yeah...although, even though they did say that HH was an option on the GH3 when it was launched, I think it took like a year before I saw one in the pics of the day. :lol: Doesn't sound like a highly-sought-after option, at least not enough for them to stock pickguards in 4 colors, right and left handed, and possibly in each of the types that fit the different bridges (I believe the floyd pickguard is different, needing a wider bridge notch).

I can't figure out why, but I don't like HSH on a guitar. It really doesn't make any sense that I don't like it, but I just don't.

I'm completely lost on this subject.

The last guitar I had it on was an Ibanez. When the 5-way was set to the 2 and 4 position, it was the split humbucker paired with the single coil in the middle. I think if you want the least amount of noise possible, it was the best way to have a humbucker in the neck when you want it, and a vaguely "single coil-y" sound when you want it, but virtually no noise (even less than my HSS Aries or what I remember from my old old HSS strat. :think:

It's also good for knocking picks out of your hand if you're used to playing an HH with the open area in the middle. :lol:

I don't like playing three pickup guitars at all. I always smash my pick into the middle pickup.

Super cool piece of buckeye on a DC700, and it makes for a cool pattern on the guitar.

See, at least if I felt that way, what I wrote would make sense. But that doesn't bother me in the slightest. If it did, then the super-unique, longnecked Asian made oddball cutie on the right in the below pic wouldn't be one of my fave guitars evahh:
Image

I've never understood that complaint, since most guitar players play over the bridge pickup at times, over the neck pickup at others, and even over the neck itself at others. And if your pick is scooping down so deep as to knock a pickup beneath . . . change technique! I don't want to get too deep in that direction since it'll sound like I'm trying to lecture you guys, who already know what you're doing.

It's just that the physical presence of a middle pup doesn't bug me in the slightest, fact when I get a LP Custom (eventually) it will be a triple PAF like so:
Image

Getting the same thing with an ebony board rather than Richlite (which I like far less than birchwood-and-resin "Resninator") would be the challenge.

There's just something about it--the way the extra single coil pickup skews the volumes/tones off of the two humbuckers (in an oddball sonic equation, and I just am dicey on how it looks). It just doesn't make the slightest bit of sense whatsoever. It's like the bias of a little kid.

I just have poor technique and I'm too lazy to fix it just to have another pickup.

When I'm "rocking out", when passion overwhelms the restraint on poor technique, I'll generally just aim for the big open area between the pickups and hope for the best. If there's a pickup there, I'm more likely to trip over it. Not a huge deal, either way.

I’m thinking the zeus bass looks more like Summer Ash treatment....

Congrats Zak. And that might be my favorite family pic of Jeff's clan yet. Mark on the phone makes me smile.

"Can you get the Crecent inlay on models other than the Crescent?"

Yes. Yes, you can.
