    I recall Jackson and Hondo, both, making M-16 looking guitars in the 80's. I'm sure there were a few others, too.......I passed on a Hondo-made one, about 4 years ago, for only $200......For a Hondo, I figured even $200 was too much for it....no matter what shape it was. :D

    So, you can now officially be wailing on a six-string or a bass before you shoot your prey when hunting? I wonder, does it have to be connected to an amp, or do they provide headphones for when in the blind :rolleyes: ?

    It kind of reminds me of the Gene Simmons "Axe" bass.

    If only they had it in a gibson SG, I would have a nice match for my guitar :D

    So, do we get to debate which is the best guage for guitar strings? I like .012's better than .011's or .010's.

    Big and slow vs. light and fast, eh?

    I like it! It would be sweet playing an arrangement for "Moonlight Sonata" on that :D

    Do you know how had it is to play that on the guitar? I have been praticing it for 6 months, and can only do about half of it reasonably well :eek:.

    I run a .46 to .09, works well for my sg

    Sorry guys: I'm with GregGry on this: light'n'fast is the way to go! High speed/low drag wins for guitar strings!

    And it shouldn't be too hard to make a six-string version of the first pic. Of course, buying another Steinberger will probably make Spoon kill me (especially since I'm already picking up a bouzouki)...

    What does it mean when the banjo player drools out both corners of his mouth?


    The stage is level...

    :evil:

    I like .010s myself, .009s break too easy... :neener:

    Well, before we discuss gauge we gotta mention whether it's for electric or acoustic... On my electric, I go with Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky, .046-.009. Sadly don't have an acoustic at the moment. :-(

    Maybe this is what they were talking about when they wrote

    "Killed with a bullet from a six string gun."

    I believe that's a gun from Gundam. You really shouldn't be able to operate it properly unless your torso comes off from your lower body and a plane flies inside and folds up before you can move much.

    As a little kid I built more than my fair share of Gundam model kits.

    They should ban those 6 string hi-cap ones all together..."no honest man needs more than 4 strings..." :D
    For a less "evil" looking one see John Fogerty's baseball bat guitar... :neener:

    Dave R asks:

    I prefer Ernie Ball Super Slinkies (.009-.042). But it just suites my style of playing more.......EVH, George Lynch, Dave Mustaine stuff. I also run .009-.052 on my Ibanez Universe 7-string, though. On my 5-string electric basses, I prefer light gauges as well. I don't care for steel string acoustics (despite having an Ovation 6-string and Ovation 5-string acoustic bass)......for acoustic, I prefer the sweet tones of a nylon-string Takamine. :D

    .010 vs .012...whatever. Fret placement fret placement fret placement.

    Good point. I prefer .012's on ACOUSTIC guitars. I don't like the sound of light strings on an acoustic. Sounds thin.

    Of course, even on electric guitars, I tend to agree with Dicky Betts, who said you should play the fattest strings you can handle. I like fat sounds. You know how thick Stevie Ray Vaughn played, dontcha?

    Prefer my bass that way, too. I like a "church organ" sound. Lotsa low. 'Course, you have to turn up the treble now and then to play some of the modern stuff.

    Spoken like a true tactical player. :p
