Chas,

The deal breaker for UD is onboard speakers. It must have them. wink

Tom ... you made me smile.
Thankfully, the body of this incredible instrument is SO resonant that it actually DOES make sound all by itself. Almost like having real speakers.

No chas it has a few different voices. Dual humbuckers with coil tap offers a number of different voices. Plus it also has a Fishman piezzo pickup for an acoustic guitar sound. So definately more than one voice. But I do get your drift laugh2

One thing for sure though, they sure are puurrrtty. In fact, among musical instruments, guitars may be THE most 'handsome' of the bunch. Large Grand pianos are up there too. Sadly, flutes, saxes (ugly), upright pianos, clarinets (seriously?), oboes, ....all range from bland to downright homely. Even my beloved 'B3' wouldn't raise an eyebrow if not for it's magnificent sound. And how about ukuleles; they look like ugly little runts (sound like it too). Violins are okay but don't have the 'brashness' and 'in-your-face-ness' of even a run of the mill guitar. I own 6 (several inherited) and can't play a single chord, but damn, they look so good in your studio or rec room or parlor.

So yeah, Dave, I don't know what it sounds like but I'll give it a "10" for looks.

I'm glad I made you smile Dave. I make a lot of people smile, mostly when I leave them.

I love the wood guitars are made from. They are just such organic instruments. Even though they are electric guitars the wood the body, neck and fretboard are made from is so important to the sound they make. And it can look so beautiful.

I cut my teeth in the music biz using a six-string Gibson that I purchased in a pawn shop while still in the Navy. I added a pickup, one that was held in place with a hasp-spring and fit in the body opening. My first paying jobs consisted of a skinny kid sitting on a bar-stool with his pawn-shop guitar, a Shure mic on a boom stand, a 100-watt Crate amp, and a music stand beneath which were a plastic box filled with three-ring binders holding lyrics and tabs. I later purchased a six-string Ibanez. When I switched to a Yamaha 12 string, I thought I died and went to heaven. wink

Those were the days my friend,

Gary cool
