I sent a request for a quote on the Dark Matter model. I will find excuses to play it.

Right ... You mean reasons besides it looking so damned cool?

Beauty eh?

It's the player that makes the guitar.

True, but not all guitars were created equal.

Yes, but the best guitar is not going to help a terrible player , yet a great guitar player can make a terrible guitar sound good

Wow.. Works of art! Any particular one you're looking at?!

Yeah. I sent an email asking for a quote for a custom Dark Matter.

It's 8 strings and I don't have an 8 string. I have a few 7 string guitars, but none with 8.

Also, you're supposed to talk me out of it - not tell me they're beautiful!

Depending on the price, I'll probably order one.

Tony MacAlpine was playing an 8 string for a while, not sure if he still is... If I primarily played electric, I'd have to put one of these on my list! These are just plain gorgeous!
