I just seen the video. True temprement really looks nice. I wonder how it feels.

I wonder, will the new true-temperament set-ups eventually make it's way on future Jem necks?

Thanx *****!

About sustain I don't think it's feedback... it's really incredibile!

I think I'm gonna try one of these beasts whenever I got the opportunity to...

WOW :shock:

on my legacy at pretty much any volume you get infinite sustain, thats why it thought so. but who knows

Sustain thing lil feedback I think.

I really don't think it's feedback as the note keeps on sounding the same and dose not become a "hi-screaming-thin stuff" and when Steve moves it does not change at all (which would have happened if it was feedback).

Also Steve touches the strings with His left hand while moving; when on feedback this would usually cause the "original" note to change a bit and this does not happen in that video

But I can be wrong :? :roll:

I mean he talks about overtones resonating...but with what do they resonate that can cause so much sustain when he holds one string?
I guess it is all just result of whole guitar set up :?

Yeah for sure it is about the whole setup, but the overtones of gutiar are sympathetic so when you only play one single note its overtones will resonate naturally with the wood and the other strings :wink:

creating something like that is forgetting all about the guitar. it´s too hi-fi. only people with the perfect pitch may hear that a certain chord is a bit out of tune. Like Steve says there, it´s the nature of the guitar and we should just get on with it and ROCK.

yea ,then me and loads of people I know have perfect pitch... :roll: I somehow doubt it...i tested some people who even don`t play an instrument and most of them hear something is "wrong"...
:P

But who gives a damn...you are right...get on with it and ROCK!! :guitar :guitar :guitar :guitar
