While I do like the f-holes, that tribal does need to go.

The color on it is very nice too.

His HourGlass Q is very similar to my Agile AD-2500.

it suprised me so much of how good it sounds,

it ranges from soft jazz blues, to dirty gritty rock ,  omg, when you play it, you never want to put it down

i usuallyplay it heavy, dirty and twangy.

Well, we kind of got everything we needed to talk about out on the old board.

Maybe we should switch it up and just talk about guitars in general.

slaps platy with a big hug and starts to cry- is it really you hairy god mother?

still feels weird though- make it better pus!! make the bad go away!

- on a side note is that a sincromatic/electromatic or a jap made plain old gretsch/cowboy-killer
also if you feel your not good enough for your rig, give it to someone who can properly operate and deserves such a chunk of metal and wood- like me! (it might help you sleep at night? maybe?) its worth a try.

anyone who plays a mean guitar and likes the qotsa sound may find it hard to pinpoint even if they are following pictures of josh's pedals- since we mostly know josh is famous for swapping metal casings and internals of pedals its now confirmed impossible to emulate his well protected sound. i feel generous so im gonna give one clue and one clue only on a sure fire alternate meathod to get all the more way closer (mainly  to generate some buzz around here)
so here it is:

"cream puff"

work it out callgirls and choderboys

the coronados sound great but its easy to get a lemon being that their a 'resoglass' guitar like an airline or many of the italia guitars- the fibreglass-like 'resoglass' parts can and will usually bend and change slighly (usually not noticable by eye) over time due to heat cold and pressure which will inevitably fuck the guitar right up if its not kept in a neutral tempreature zone without sunlight! also the string tension will dramaticly effect it as the bridge is set on this material and is the undisputed 'tension point' on the guitar. the other guitars you posted all look the part but in my opinion the attraction stops there. it really depends on how serious a player you are and weather its a display peice or you play in a band? it also depends weather its your only guitar, first guitar, or one of many that you needent rely on. personally i would shop around in person not online n play some guitars (assuming you want it to sound n feel good and you know the difference, ie. your at an intermediate level minimum) cause no offence but lets face it, most people who play for the first 2-5 years dont really realise how shit the instrument their playing is untill it breaks. also to the same point try to realise that even if you are a 'safe shopper' n go with gibson or usa fender or maton and such, it doesnt mean the guitar you baught is good! 80% of the guitar is in its action and setup- this means that it is far wiser to buy a cheaper guitar and have it set up with new strings, pickups, knut, and bridge then it is to just buy a brand and have faith in its name. many famous guitarists lend their name to and actually play "shitty guitars" but they are setup with great parts by a professional workman perhaps doing a fret dress (one of the MOST important aspects to perfect action and playability). i have 200$ guitars that play way better than my 2000$ ones! its all about the money i spent AFTER purchase, and who i got to do it!!!! as far as pickups there are a wide array of types like mini humbucker, p90, soapbar p90, singlecoil and humbuckers- then there are different brands that generally make these types. i recomend finding a sound you like in a pickup style as a starting point, then looking at a brand my favourites and very well renoun carriers and makers are: TV Jones (my favourite and arguably the best), seymour duncan, and dimazrio. let me know if i can help further.

I reckon that plays like shit aswell to be honest. They look good, but whether they play good or not, I duno. The Ultra-gp looks like shit coz the headstock isnt the original Ovation shape, and thats one of the best features of the ultra-gp.
