ron: Is a new scarf considered new gear?

There’s a difference between new gear & new merchandise. :mrgreen:


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

My Circles guitar arrived today. I got home about 30 minutes ago and it was sitting at my front door. Could of been stolen before I got back here. It also looks like its about to piss down in rain too… I’m going to kill a delivery man one day… They did this last year too when I bought my Bee….
Anyway, here it is. I have even played it yet. I’ll post more photos of it and my other VH guitars later tonight or tomorrow… The serial # is 00662. Missed out by 4 on a evil one… ;)

Congratulations on your new guitar! I understand your desire to kill delivery drivers; Adelaide delivery people are the absolute worst.

So, I’ve been jamming on the new guitar for a couple hours now (acoustically) and its play really nice straight out of the box. Just a word of warning for anyone who buys one, the string quality is pretty shit. I didn’t notice it straight away, but after an hour or so, I noticed that my finger tips were turning black. This has happened before, particularly with an Epiphone Explorer I bought a few years ago. What I didn’t realize until a bit later is that my finger have started to stain the fretboard. The Epi Explorer has a rosewood fret board so I didnt notice or even think about it, but when I put the Unchained axe down, its obviously quite noticeable. I’m not pissed off or anything, as it kind of looks cool, but I will be restringing it tomorrow. I dont know what strings they are using on it, I would imagine they are the EVH Strings, but I have used the EVH Strings before and they were fine.

So this is just a heads up for you guys…

BTW, this didn’t happen with my Bee.

The strain is a little darker than it looks in the photo. The flash is washing it out a bit.

I don’t know if this was shared here or not, but I found this pretty interesting. The story of the “Unchained” guitar from VHLinks…

Just a quick update on my Circles guitar. I changed the strings last night and the new strings are fine. I lightly sanded the fretboard with .0000 steelwool and the black stains came off quite easily.

Interestingly, when I had the strings off, I decided to checkout the pup and when I unscrewed the pup ring, its not connected to the pup at all. Its just there for show. The pup is screwed straight to the body.

Took a few photos of my VH guitars today…

The Franky with the Charvel neck was only put together a few weeks ago, so I thought I’d take a photo of them together. Still got 1 more Franky to finish now…
