  1. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    My precious (i.e. Schecter KM-6) came with a set of Schecter Apocalypse USAIIs which surprised me with how good they sound. While I'd intended on replacing them right away, I actually liked 'em enough to keep 'em in the guitar and even did a few SAWs with 'em. But, they just lacked that little...
  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Finally got myself a Black Winter a few months ago and was so overwhelmingly disappointed with it that I figured I needed to sell it and replace it asap. Since the Elysian Trident II was on my short list, I reached out to Adam and he hooked me up with a great deal on a hand wound one. It took a...
  3. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Hi guys! This has been delayed for almost two months as I didn't have the guitar with me, but finally got it back and put them to test both live and in the studio. Impressions below, but first... pics! Now that the porn is out, I'll share with you my thoughts about them: These are a...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Wanted a new bridge humbucker for the Kiesel Vader 7. The stock Kiesel Lithiums sound great in my other 2 Kiesel 7s but since the Vader literally has half the mass of the other 2 I wanted something to hopefully make it match the others. Decided on a Hellfire from Adam. 24.5k of screaming...
  5. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    These finally came in! I talked to Adam about what I want for my PRS, and he just happened to have these ceramic modern winds in stock already. I am TOO excited to throw them in!
  6. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    A couple weeks ago, I posted about a purchase I intended to make. I wasn't completely pleased with the '57 Classic pickups in my Les Paul Traditional and thought... "well, let's try Bare Knuckle Black Dogs." I wanted something a bit more ballsy without turning the Big Blond Bastard into a...
  7. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I recently contacted Adam about obtaining one of his tuned aperture pickups to try in this guitar...a little warmoth build i did a few years ago. The pickup shown was a Dimarzio Titan - not bad at all, i just wanted to try something different. And Adam's prices are fantastic, so I got him to...
  8. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    https://soundcloud.com/kennygerbick/elysian-obsidian-bridge-pickup-vs-kiesel-lithium-bridge-pickup Kenny Gerbick of Arsonwave made this comparison clip for me, thought I'd share it here. They've got an album coming out on February 25th, I'm definitely looking forward to that. Here's Kenny's...

    Hi guys, Ibanez RG maple/rosewood neck, has anyone added binding to one of these? Thinking you may be interested Adam? I foresee it being quite difficult because of the radius causing you to have no flat surface to mount the router on? Cheers
  10. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    When my 1527M sold, I put a down payment on an Elysian Espada 6. I always thought the Espada shape was perfect, and Adams work on my 7621, and his past builds/modifications have all left me totally confident in Adams work, and he's cool to talk to about cars and moonshine so it's a win win. I...
  11. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    I got Adam to jam together a set of his new pickups that he designed. There lower out put a little hotter then a PAF I forget exactly what they. I'm loving the fuck out of them. I'm not the best guy to be demoing stuff but maybe you guys can get an idea what these sound like...

    Saw your cover videos, dude. You're singing has really come on in leaps and bounds!
  14. Guitars For Sale / Trade / Wanted
    I don't want to sell this, but I have a wedding to fund and don't have much else I can get rid of. This guitar has been posted in Elysians build thread, so I'm sure some of you have seen these pics. It is a complete custom from the ground up. This guitar still has a little bit of work before it...
  15. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I've been meaning to make this thread for a while, after getting the ok from Chris. This will be a preface to my website and my own subforum on here, just need to get more material worked up for the site and work with Chris on the subforum thing. I've got several builds currently in progress...

    :( Also, if anyone ever decides to order something online. Don't do it on a Friday afternoon. Especially not a Friday afternoon before a long weekend. This shit is going to take forever to be delivered. :lol:
  17. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    I say preview because it's not finished yet and I will get some better pictures than this when it is, and I'm not so distracted (just moved into a new flat and so am still a bit discombobulated and generally busy). The body is a two-piece alder RG7 with a flamed maple top, green finish and...
  18. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    This is a shot of my custom RG body, made for me by the excellent Adam/Elysian. It's in progress still, but I think it's well worth a little showing off:
