    I saw that getting the gears on Facebook.
    I think I’d like it. Enough to add Ish to the northeast Terror Tour.
    It would certainly be fun to get to know.

    It does have a metric a$$-load of switches, but I like the “color outside the lines” approach. Very innovative, and that’s always been the PRS way, to me. I’d take the whole thing with dark humbuckers.

    Yeah, Ish Guitars has one of the most unique collections I've come across. I'd love to see their shop in person. They recently posted a Private Stock Vela on IG that just looked killer.

    Their website has a few of these multi-scale guitars posted. I'm curious of this specific one's pickup configuration.

    Oh I'd like that for sure. My old charvel had a mini toggle for each pickup. I liked that a lot.

    This guitar is cool!!!

    I like everything but the multi-scale aspect, the rest is dope.

    Do you like fan fret better?
    I was surprised how much I liked the ones I’ve played. I had expected to feel clumsy playing them.

    Is tulip wood the same as tulip poplar?

    It is not. The tulip used in this guitar is a South American Dalbergia species. This species and poplar are not related (except they are both trees :D).

    The frets are fanned on this, just a little bit, right? 25.5" on low strings, 24.75" on the high - so it's pretty mild. Even though that might benefit me a bit, it just doesn't interest me much. The pickup config is unique, but not sure I'd like it. I'd still love to try it just to get a feel for what it's all about. I'm 100% going on preconceived notions, which is probably what holds the industry back.

    I read the info again and hadn't noticed the mini toggles were 3 ways. I can only guess at what the pickup options are on this thing.

    The minis on my old charvel were 2 way. On or off.
