Thank you guys for the craziness lol It was a miracle that I was still able to wake up and get myself to London Anyhow, thanks for all the birthday wishes =D I thoroughly enjoyed myself that night Although I can't remember what I did that night .___.
And finally I got my 2nd care package from my parents Loads of Cinta Asam Laksa (they're the best!) Some drinks and some other random stuff
The RAF museum was awesome I spent around 5 hours at the museum and had to force myself to get out Loads of Aircraft and fighter jets as well as WWII era bombers
Top the night off with Chinese dinner and Blood Brothers play at the Phoenix Theater Thanks to my cousin Vivian jie jie
Oh b.t.w the Blood Brother songs are stuck in my head I think Natasha Hamilton made a superb Mrs. Johnston =o
I also think I'm weird I like metal but also love Musical plays I'm weird just like that
p/s- I just have weird fetishes for fighter jets =s
I love the way they protect consumer rights in the UK So this post goes out to those retailers, sellers and whatever you are Thank you for putting consumers first I don't know how to get back to the Malaysian attitude when I get home You guys gave me a really good impression of the business attitude here Keep it up!
As for Malaysia.. You have much to learn.. But yet you are too thick headed to learn So screw yourself Consumer is power Consumer is and will always be right
Except of course for Joon Wye ._____. He is an irrational bastard lol
Yes... The newest addition to the family.. Jess II She is a Flamed thru Black Les Paul shaped guitar
Her specifications Body: Mahogany with Cream Binding Neck: Maple neck, Set Neck with Cream Binding Fingerboard: Rosewood, 22 Frets, Scale Length- 24.3/4 Inlay: Pearl "Tophat" styled inlays Headstock: Black with Chrome Grover Machine Heads Hardware: Chrome Gotoh Floyd Rose Pickups: DV8 Neck Pickup, DV8 Bridge Pickup, Alnico Humbuckers Controls: 2 Tone, 2 Volume, 3 Way Toggle Switch Truss Rod: 2-Way Dual Action Color: Flamed Thru Black
What does the above specifications tell you? If I were to change the Humbuckers to the P-90 classic What kind of guitar would you think that specifications resembled? *Okay maybe take away the Floyd Rose and replace it with Tune-O-Matic, Stop Bar Now what do you think?
An Epiphone Les Paul Custom?! Well, surprise, the above is not an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Neither is it tailored specifically for me =p She is an Indie Guitar Co. ILP Gotoh Floyd Rose Founded in England and Manufactured in Korea
MiK = Epicness in quality
I know I am not even 60% good yet But I know a good sound when I hear one *No I'm not biased =p The tone is as ballsy as a Gibson (I bet if you replaced the Humbuckers with a Gibson burstbucker you'd probably suckered yourself into believing it to be an actual Gibson =D) But that said, it can never be compared to a Gibson It's like a Gibson but its just not But hey for the price, I'm satisfied =D But I'd say it surpassed the Epiphone LP Custom though
It's solid and has a nice feel The set neck is perfect for accessing the upper frets (in particular the 21st-22nd frets) The best thing about this guitar is that I do not have to worry about meeting someone with the same guitar in Malaysia I think all in all there would be less than 100 players with this guitar in Malaysia An Indie Guitar, nobody knows about it sadly And I have to admit that I've stumbled upon this beauty by chance as well (On e-bay too.. tell me about the scare)
It's a well known general rule that you shouldn't buy guitars off E-bay This is due to the scams and what not But all in all, this guitar isn't famous enough to be replicated... yet So I decided to go for it (Anyway consumer protection in the UK is a very big thing) The DV8 pickups are alright, not as heavy as I'd like it to be but still sounds good (Maybe I need to up my skill levels first =p)
So because I'm not good at this yet (Neither have I found out how to record the audio and visual yet) Here is a video of a guy playing it at the NAMM 2009
Best thing is it's a LP with a Floyd Rose (however when I get bored of the hassle I'd probably get a Stop Bar guitar -_-)
So there we go My new baby
Oh before I stop There is one thing about the price that I must mention I still can't believe the price I paid for this baby Floyd Rose Guitars usually costs above MYR2k in general A Licensed Ibanez Floyd Rose will cost about MYR2.5k I got a Gotoh one and it stays in tune like an angel Go figure
p/s- Just incase anybody wonders, Jess II only cost me below MYR1900
Yup... Too busy having fun to post up a New Year Message to whoever is reading this blog Its too empty to even matter rofl!
Well.. Let's see... lots of people have been asking me a) How's CNY in UK? b) How's your CNY holiday?
Well to answer the above.. a) Everything goes on as usual here (sadly) b) I have classes on Chor Yat.. (go figure)
But all in all It wasn't too bad really.. CNY Eve we had dinner with occupants of House 64 and 60 of Miskin Street (Don't ask me why it's called Miskin Street maybe they wanna be miskin.. beats me)
CNY Chor Yat we had Bakuteh mmmMMMmmmm (When you have not have had bakuteh for 8 friggin' months, it feels like heaven) I swear If you're Chinese and dislike bakuteh = blasphemy =_=
Second Day we had another dinner - Steamboat =D This time adding people from Hertfordshire as well
And that night we got tipsy.. not drunk.. just tipsy hahaha!
