Any feedback on the bamboo fretboard?


Not if you stand far enough away from the amp...





I'm here all week, try the veal.

I've always wondered about this. Do you do bends much? The reason for asking... I can't bend with low action. I find, when I bend a string, the neighbouring lower string tends to push it back down if it's too low. I find the lower neighbouring string has to catch the middle of my fingertip as I'm pushing up. Does that make sense?

Yeah, I get what you're saying. I don't do huge bends, like note and a half, but I do catch the string above - it doesn't seem to be a problem though.

That's what I call it. It is very versatile - single coil, humbuckers and piezo. :thumbup:

Thats usually not due to a low action, but due to the action not following the fretboard radius.

We naturally want to bend the top 3 strings up, so each string must be set to the fretboard radius curve, then you will always catch the string correctly no matter the action height.
And vice versa on the bottom strings.

Of course if you have a greater radius curve, heading towards flatter, then its going to be more difficult.

Have played this.
It does so many things in a new way, like the 17position, touch screen pup selector which you change from SC to HB by tapping once with two fingers.

Or the use of magnets to attach the rear body panel and the pickups to the beautifully made aluminium body chassis. The guitar feels rock solid and durable (I don't include the electronics here; they should be fine but hey, they're tech.)

There's a lot of forward looking intelligence packed into this thing. I like it.

And Conway makes it sound great! :thumbup:
