Hello! It appears to be a 2015 model with Two humbuckers and a 24th fret inlay. I have the Custom S modal from 2015 and this matches it perfectly. It is definitely real and not a knock off. It's just the version without the sustaniac.
Practice with heavy strings. No argument. They force your fingers to get stronger and pick more accurately. They are easier to sweep and do legato on as there is very little slinkyness. 10-52 is a great place to start.
Thank you so much!!
This is such an unexpected surprise and something that really brightened my day!
I am very thankful for this family and Syn, Papa G and the rest of the wonderful members on here for how much inspiration they have all had on my learning and perception of music.
I can't name...
Yes. Just slow the song down and put headphones on. Find Isolated tracks on YouTube and LISTEN to them till you are sick of it. Then you play along with it. Go slow and don't worry about tempo till you get the fingering down. : ) this will help you.
Hey Everyone! Happy New Year!
Recently, I've noticed a bit of decline from some of the members on here and it's a bit of a downer.
That being said how is everyone doing? How has everyone's musical journey changed this year?
What has everyone been listening to recently and how has it effected...
That's the model from the Making the Self Titled album. You can also see it (Or an Alt model hard tale) In the Burn Halo - Dirty Little Girl music video during his solo. If I remember correctly He uses this exact model in the beginning of the Making of Hail To The King video.
But otherwise that...
Remember to stretch thoroughly before your gig. Drink lots of caffeine and energy drinks prior to the gig to get the jitters out.
Also, treat the gig like a big practice session and be extroverted to not worry about mistakes : )
Good luck and Merry Christmas : )
