Guitar is set up to be tuned to G#, C#, F#and B for the lower 4 strings, followed by the standard 6 string guitar tuning on the upper strings (E, A, D, G, B, E) - however a variety of tunings is possible.
You may recall I purchased one ,if not the last of the neck through 9 string Septers which is great though a bit heavy !!
So I`ve tried one of your newer Chiral`s which arrived last week - I`ve tried it through a couple of marshall`s and it’s astounding. I was so impressed I`ve just bought another so in live performance one can be tuned differently .I`m actually a trained Lutenist, so am used to longer string lengths on giant Chittarone.
The Chiral is a great player with a better more comfortable neck profile and it`s light and compact without compromising the sound . The fan string length is right and it just sounds very good. Are there any plans to do a neck through version as I would be very interested.
Many thanks and I should add that also Fedex do a great fast delivery too .
Question: I was in the process of changing strings and the headlock has stripped Answer: Please follow this suggested procedure when changing strings to avoid cross-threading your string locks. First, whenever possible, when removing strings, simply loosen the string lock at the headstock and do no remove the screw completely. If you do happen to remove, carefully replace the screw, and tighten at least one full turn, being careful not to cross-thread BEFORE inserting the string. Secondly, remember this is not a floyd locking system. There is no need to overtighten the locking mechanism to fully secure the string.
Question: What is the difference between passive and active pickups?
Answer: A passive pickup is a magnetic pickup which directly sends the signal from your string, through the wood, into the pickup, and then into the amp which creates the most dynamic sound you can produce. Many artists prefer a passive pickup which enables a multitude of tones. Jeff Beck, Darrell Abbott, Eddie Van Halen, and Jimi Hendrix are prime examples of passive pickup users. An active pickup is powered by a separate battery stored in the guitar enabling higher output and overall balanced frequency. Many artists who are looking for a consistent sound such as in metal music use active pickups to achieve a powerful and consistent tone without compromising quality. Kirk Hammett and Kerry King use active electronics which enable them to push their amps near their limits and still retain a tight and focused clarity in their sound.
