Post Solo NS/Stick Videos
Gary Jibilian tells me that "Lord Vader," my newly ordered Ebony-stained Wenge-on-Wenge NS/Stick, is done and will ship out sometime soon. I've been trawling the intertubes looking for NS/Stick videos, and I can't find very many. So, help a NS/wanna-be brother out and post us all some rocking NS/Stick performances. :mrgreen: If it's yours, all the better--upload some old stuff, if you'd not mind!

I had to start with the awesome Don Schiff. Here is "Solo Peace" and Don rocking it out.


And then...

Help a brother out with some NS/Stickiness! Thanks!

Thanks, Rob. I'll be sure and do an unboxing video. I couldn't find an NS/Stick unboxing video, so I'm going to try and make it a good one of I can.


Here's a couple more of my lately favorite NS/Stick pieces. One cover by our own Russell Keating:

"My Sweet Lord" performed on NS/Stick by Russell Keating


And here's that one again by Jan Laurenz:

Still trawling the net looking for good NS/Stuff. I'm liking the wide range of styles that have been done, from heavier stuff to even this New Agey and Classical stuff:

And this was especially tasty:

Walery Rowinsky is a talented, and one of my favorite Russian player, but
from the chronicler's duty I have to write that both Inventions he played only on NS copy.

Russell just told me the same thing on Facebook. :( Man, I didn't know it was a knockoff. He calls it an "NS/Stick" but like Russell says, there's some brand name confusion like kleenex and Kleenex. Sorry to post this as an NS/Stick video! Still rocking it out, though! Thanks, mahabresq!

Post Re: Solo NS/Stick Videos
So, the consensus on Facebook seems to be that Walery Rowinsky has a real NS/Stick and also a knock-off copy. Some of his videos are with the real one and some with the copy. Both sound great to my ears.

It's been said that there's is no real product name for this type of a hybrid instrument other than calling it an "NS/Stick," but I think that's not the case: I see Stick calling them a "guitarbass" in all one word. I think it's printed on the attached metal label even.

I know Russell Keating has an NS/Stick and also an instrument that he made himself, which is another 8-string guitarbass. But Russ's instrument doesn't have the headless stock on top like an NS, which is another distinctive feature of the NS/Stick. There's apparently a difference in the dot pattern as well.

It seems that people are deliberately making NS/Stick clones or knockoffs, instead of just making their own version of a "guitarbass." I don't have a problem with you copying Ned and Emmett's design for your own personal use, but please don't call it an "NS/Stick." It's an 8-string guitarbass.

I can make my own hollowbody guitar, but if I call it a "Les Paul," then it's not. It's a Les Paul knockoff or copy maybe.

Just my own 2 cents. My own NS/Stick comes very soon and I can have more informed opinions. :ugeek:
