No it's a custom shop model from the 90s. It has two channels (clean and diirt) and a separate effects loop for each, but effects don't come as standard! It's pretty old school.

Sounds incredible.

Haven't got it yet. :banghead:

Usually buy my guitars from Thomann in Germany boom six days later it arrives. Decided to be a nice bloke and throw the thousand quid at an Oirish guitar shop for this EVH and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered! :(

Thomann in Germany is where I got my T-Rex Soulmate (Acoustic FX Board) from, they also sorted a decent carrying case for it. Always helpful.

I'm the same with my Taylor 12 fret, 12 String.... I actually travelled to Birmingham to the Guitar-Guitar shop, they were doing it the cheapest by some £300, so that easily covered petrol etc. They also gave me a good price / exchange on my old Takamine. Apparently there have been Hold-Up's with Imports all over the UK. Taylor told Guitar-Guitar it was due to a change in Shipping Fee's; something to do with a sudden Big Increase in insurance costs etc, my Taylor should have been here by last Saturday so a 2 Week delay expected. They will set it up and ship it to me asap, I am just looking forward to playing it. :-P :D 8)


Just out of interest what strings do you tend to use on your (Electric) guitars? I've tried various over the years on my Acoustics , but usually now use Elixir Nanoweb Light 12 - 53, they are quite pricey, but I can usually source a 3 packs for 2 online. The best one's I've used are Lowden's own make / brand (Bronze Light) They are amazing but they are expensive.

On all my regular guitars (the ones tuned in E standard) it's Enie Ball Super Slinky 9 - 42. 8)

For the ones in drop D tuning, drop C tuning, or E♭ tuning, and the one 7 string I have, it's Ernie Ball super slinky 10 - 46.

After experimenting with loads of brands as a kid I discovered Ernie Ball Super Slinky and have played them ever since. And that's decades my friend! :wink:

I love them. 8) :barscarf:

They just feel so smooth and well.... slinky.... on the neck. :lol: They are great for extreme string bending and for any guitar with a Floyd or Ibanez Edge whammy.

I literally use no other type of string. When I bought my Kramer Baretta, before I even plugged it in, I ripped off the factory strings and slapped on a set of Super Slinky nines! :lol: 8)
