    Now here is a guitar. It is a custom made Ernie Ball MusicMan Majesty NOMAC.

    Based on the NOMACs (Noise Machines) featured in the Dream Theater album “The Astonishing,” this extremely limited Majesty from Ernie Ball Music Man features real black diamonds, spinel rubies, white gold, LED lights, and many other intricate details.

    Thanks dude. Its just the regular goldtop finish. I have a martin acoustic also but it doesn't get enough love. Ive been on a Ry Cooder kick lately so maybe ill dust it off. Whats your favorite Petrucci solo?

    This thread is conspicuously missing Cello88's 12 figure instruments. I want pics of it taken with a bill_p special f/0.0001 bokehliscious lens.

    I have this piano that I inherited from my grandmother, though I don't play as often I would like anymore. It is actually a small grand piano that is turned up right, from there on the creatively named upright grand piano. Some Dutch piano builder figured he could fit more in a ship container if he built them this way and that they would actually fit in people's homes. I like the sound which is quite unique and I had it fully restored about 2 years ago, after our long haul movers treated it really badly. It is bad-ass heavy though and takes special piano services to move it about.

    @Kamikazi that's got to be one of the cooler uprights I've seen.

    That's too difficult to answer, I'd have o really think about that one - I know I really like the solo in "Under a Glass Moon"

    Speaking of musical instruments, does anybody have any recommendations for keyboards in the $500-1000 range? I'd prefer full length and weighted.

    It's an easily Googlable question yeah, but was hoping that someone here has personal experience.

    I've got a Kawai ES100 that feels and sounds pretty darn good considering the price.

    I own the Casio Privia PX-5S. It's on the top end of your budget. Read up on it. Definitely worth it for me.

    Ooooooh very nice, I've been eye balling a 5 string fretless Ibanez for a while now, for now I 3. My Ibanez Accoustic Bass and my 2 Classical Nylon Strings. My Washburn is my daily user, and I've got a Cordoba in a soft case. Really only keep my Nylon for playing for/with friends and family. Other wise I really enjoy playing Chello music with my acoustic bass

    Just picked up this beauty. I don't really know how to play bass yet, but I can kinda do it, and will take lessons.
    I just couldn't resist a fender jazz bass for $100. Needs a bit of work, but $100 is so cheap for this. Made in Korea in 1992.

    It's amazing what even a good set of strings can do for an instrument. Turn it into a work of love and have some fun with it! :)
