Great Guitar Footstool / Footrest

Recommended Posts

I played classical for some years...although I didnĀ“t like to use the footrest, I came to realize it did help out a lot for posture. And I never, ever thought a V would be played the same way...neat!

Well I take back my words.....I have done finger exercisers while watching TV.

If you put the crotch of the vee on/in your Right leg and use a footrest to raise your left leg you can actually play a vee very comfortable. One of my instructors when I was a teen had a Jackson V (it was nice to.) he showed me that trick at the time I had a Charvel Star body style and I could never play sitting down until he showed me the trick.

Charvel Star

I remember those...hideous guitars...

Well,that IS how I play sitting down...but I play explorers,les pauls,super strats,etc sitting down...

My vee is for standing because it is so light and well balanced...a trait none of my other guitars share.

I have two main Vees...A jackson Japanese phil demel(?) vee with emg dual humbuckers and an original floyd...alder body maple neck thru

and a KXK custom SSV(my baby)...maple neck thru,mahogany wings...dual emg humbuckers(81/85) and an original floyd...

Both are great,but the KXK is top knotch homegrown california handmade custom...Thanks to Rob Kaufman it is easily the best guitar I have ever owned...and I have owned more expensive ones...

Nice, I like Jacksons. My top 2 guitars are a 2004 Gibson Les Paul stadard cherry sunburst and a Fender 'Robin Ford' Elite with a Khaler tremlo.. I bought this guitar new when I was 15 and had it ever since. It is one of may favs.

Ok that Rocks! how heavy is it. Here are my top 3 guitars....I feel to old (39) to say Axe

the yellow one I built from BC rich and Fender parts a few years back. Kahler Tems are the best. Even with my new floyds still go out of tune....My kahler nevers does I can jam for hours and still be tuned. the fine tuners are way better than a floyd as well.

how heavy is it.

Everyone asks that....so I just now weighed it...ready?

10.4 pounds....about the same as a les paul supreme...

But too heavy...I should have hollowed out more...just could have made a huge control cavity....since I matched the cover it would not have mattered....

That Fender is amazing...I have never seen one...I thought the schecter body was original...obviously fender did it first.

The black Fender was only made for one year. I was lucky to get it. The yellow one all the parts are fender except the body. That is a BC Rich model I can;t recall. The black Fender has better tone than the les Paul and the P90's really kick through my Marshal

Just FYI you can REALLY liven up the tone of a les paul with some premium pups...depending on what you play as to what kind...

I always throw emg in mine...but the JB/59 duncan combo is awesome too...both combos for rock/metal...

for other styles I don't know..but I never liked those gibson alnicos too much...

these aren;t that bad I prefer Screamin Deamons. I like the G lynch sound. I never put them in the LP cause the pups were not that bad. The neck pickup is really fat and heavy. has a G N R type feel and in the clean channel there is almost no hum. I have 3 effects DD-2, DOD chourus and a Whah.

Another happy footrest buyer!
