uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh yeah!


Gomli: well, noone NEEDs a b-tuned guitar either, or a C or D tuned one for that matter...
also noone ever said F# is the only way to tune an 8. I've seen quite a few people use them to extend their range to the high side instead of the low.

ALSO as always in those things thats solely a matter of personal preference. I've given up about the "noone needs [insert feature here]" a loooooong time ago

its not like I could name a lot of well-known artists that do, but its definitally been done before quite a few times!
also even high A is not the only alternative to a low F#. for example some people tune in 4th or some other tuning they find usefull or just simply fun to experiment with

even for those who do extend their range to the high or low side its not always simple about having more range but also about having new possibilities as to how to play some stuff or whatever.

for example I've read a post of a guy, ages ago, who always played 6-strings and got a 7 to play around with. he actually DID tune it with a high A. he was more of a "classical" metal player who did a lot of his soloing around the middle area of the neck so the 7 gave him more range to play with without leaving his usual habbits. its all about experimentation and fun. if YOU dont find that fun or usefull then just stay away from it! no problem with that! not at all!
now I, for example, have quite a lot of fun with stuff like that. no problem here either *shrugs*

Hi guys. I was interested to buy RAN custom made guitar and found some pictures in gallery on Ran website... I was reading this RAN guitars thread since yesterday, about 50 pages of 213 now, and cant find the person who ordered this one guitar from RAN:

http://ranguitars.com/gal1.php?z=225

http://i382.photobucket.com/albums/...MadeGuitar1.jpg

Im very interested is that person comes from this forum? and about all specification for this guitar, how long it took from order until guitar was shipped, and first important thing is about the price for that amazing shape etc...? I hope someone can send me a link to read more about this one, and Im sorry if there was anyone already asking about it but as I said before I was reading 50 pages now and cant find anything exactly about this one so it was nice to read everything about... Thanks!
I love RAN guitars too.
Stay Heavy!

What happens to this forum?

Hi all Ran owners and future owners!

This forum seems to be less used than before: what happens to the RAN brand?
Are there any guys here who ordered a RAN instrument recently?

I've actually Changed my mind since then, I am now getting that exact axe made by another Custom Shop called Shamray.

Here is an upgraded Picture of What The
Washburn 3ST Stealth Replica will look like--->
Click to see 3ST Stealth Replica...

Shamray's Custom Shop is much less expensive, they post pictures on their forum so you can see the progress of your axe every day as its being made & your guitar will be built in 6 to 8 weeks (depending on whats being built) as opposed to the year Ran would take making a guitar...

Well, Ran used to take about 8 weeks when I got mine.

I have to agree that the Ran Guitar company has grown. Considering the quality of their work it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. I would still get another Ran if I needed a new custom guitar.

Hi Styx,
Received my Custom Ran in October, will put up photos and specs when I can stop playing it. I waited a year - but it was so worth it ! Dariusz @ Ran was perfect to deal with - totaly delivered my dream guitar.

Ran does do great work, but I don't like the fact that I wouldn't be able to see the progress of my axe being built & I don't think I could wait a year either...

ok. I'm waiting for your pics.

Was the setup of your guitar well done (Fret levelling, good action etc.)?
This was my only 'complaint' about mine, the action was too high when i
received it.
