Default Update!

We had a hard time picking the final body style and I'm so wrapped up in a house renovation I am happy to go slowly.

More to come later!

Wow, the grain pattern in the neck is insane! Almost looks cartoonish at the moment, but still looking fantastic!

Guitar is basically done but Ben is going to take a week or two to let it mellow out and get some professional photographs. I'm moving in about six weeks so I've asked him to hold onto the guitar until then, so stay tuned until this October on the sonic attributes!

Looks awesome!
Is that a reflection at the end of the fret board, or has the finish been faded to a lighter colour?

Dunno! Maybe the new photo I added will clarify. More to come.

Default Guitar arrived today!

After an extended delay due to hurricane and my move into the new house, I asked Ben to hold onto the guitar for a while, but life has calmed down somewhat and the guitar arrived today!





I haven't plugged it in yet, but the ergonomics, weight, size, etc are all absolutely stellar and just a joy to hold. I'll update you guys this weekend when I can plug it in.

Thanks for following along and indulging an electric in the custom shop!
