Yes I like Silos. Like I said before, Silos are a my guitar can do more than your guitar kind of guitar. 24 frets and then 3 of them have split coil EMGís and that cool Steve Morse bridge toggle switch. Since I got the Petrucci back I have been playing it exclusively. Then last night I picked up one of the Silos and played one chord. It wonít be to much longer before the Pet finds it way back to the case. The Blue Dawn Silo has the piezo on it so there are 22 different pickup configurations listed at the thread
Ernie Ball's most versitile Guitar
and is my favorite guitar.
The Silo Bass is a pure toy. It is just fun to play. I have tried to play other brands of baritone guitars and they all are just difficult to play.
In taking this picture I found that photographing metal flake finishes with a Pac Blue Burst axis is tough. Also the color on the purple Silo Bass wants to wash out to look black. What I found was if I use a flash the Blue Dawn and the Burnt Apple look great but the contrast on the quilt top axis just doesnít show up. To me the top on the Axis is the prettiest piece of wood I have ever seen on a guitar. Without the flash, the way this picture was taken, the Blue Dawn and the Burnt Apple just donít sparkle. (FYI mine are the rare sparkly ones even though the pictures donít show it.) What I ended up doing was bringing every light in the room and uncovering all five windows and no flash.
I am really proud of this collection and I worked really hard to get each guitar. I am also really glad that Ernie Ball provides this forum so that I can share this with you guys. The only people in the world that can appreciate my geek habit.
I really Love My Ernie Ball Guitars and Ernie Ball!
