I must have déjà vu cause I distinctly remember you saying that before, I could be wrong though. I remember you buying a very expensive Les Paul then ended up selling it.

What is the purpose of having two nearly identical guitars? If you are playing at a gig and you have the guitar with one knob do you have to tell the band to hold up cause the next song you're going to play you'll need to switch to the guitar with two knobs? Then they start without you anyways and you wish you had a single guitar that sound like both the one knob and two knob guitar.

Honestly you should do a guitar video shoot out between the one knob and two knob guitar. See how different they are sonically from each other.

Anything I said previous to 2019 is highly suspect. I was making terrible financial and gear decisions for a few years there.

The combination of the lightweight (5 lbs), cool body shape (is comfy to play standing, sitting, even lying down - I tried it), the multi-scale (it transitions from a Strat scale on the low E to Les Paul on the high E), and the crazy neck have all helped my playing more than I would have imagined.

And Neo, I can't believe you have to ask about the benefits of having two knobs over one. It's simple math silly. Two is bigger, better, and simply MORE than one.

Duh.

I understand the reason for the one knob, seem apparent it's paying homage to EVH. So having two knobs isn't always necessary. If you constantly gigging I can see the advantages of having two identical guitars - having one for back up in case you break a string. The question is which one do you leave on the guitar stand - the one knob or two knob guitar? If I have two identical guitars one would have to be in alternative tuning. eg one Telecaster in standard and the other in Open G tuning.

Simply really, they get alternated each day.
Only one comes out of the closet at a time.






Kinda like this place....

What's the big deal about them? They look like they ripped off their design from the Ovation Breadwinner. The one knob guitar looks like it was cut from plywood. Were they really worth it? Like they're better than a Les Paul for its price range. I think any guitar you play everyday is worth it regardless the price. Whether it's a $100 Squier or a $10,000 Gibson Jazz box - if you can afford that.

Take a few minutes for this. Every single aspect of the guitar was re-thought and optimized for comfort/playability/stability/tone - everything.

That's an older model. I have Progs.
Chambered swamp ash, maple top (the Plini model also has a veneer of Aussie blackwood), 3-ply maple neck with carbon fiber,
ebony board, SS frets, and Suhr SSH+ and SSV pups.
The Plini has no tone control and only a 3 position switch - middle position being one of the split coil from a std. 5-way.

No hyperbole: My playing has improved and been more consistent since getting fully comfortable with it. Wished I stumbled
on them years ago.

Take a few minutes for this .... Leo Fender did the same thing when he designed the Stratocaster. It's probably the most copied style for a solid body guitar body out there, which is a testament to how well Leo designed it. The most comfortable guitar is the Jazzmaster, but I really don't care for its Trem system and the bridge can rattle apart. But as far as comfort and tone is concerned it's the Jazzmaster all the way.

I've seen similar guitars that you own on Amazon -- sub $350 price range. Since you have the original (authentic) model you should buy the EART copy and do a side-by-side comparison video and post it. But it has to be the EART, it has some of the same features -- Ash body etc. Let us know if the EART is as good as the original and worth getting. Either way you probably can return it & get your money back. Remember: EART guitars. It's ear with a "t" or Earth without the "h."

No need to school me on Leo and the Strat - but you knew that.

If you're not interested in the guitar, why'd you ask the ****ing question?

What do mean not interested? I've seen guitars like them on Amazon I wanted to know more about them esp. the EART version of that guitar. Maybe it is too far-fetch of an idea, but I was hoping you could buy the Eart clone and do a comparison video between them to see how close it is to the original. I found out about that brand when Darrell Braun did a video on the Eart E-335 and gave it a really good review. The (headless) Eart W (1&2) have a compound radius neck 9.5" to 14" Ash body, exotic wood top, stainless steel frets etc etc.
