    VERY beautiful guitar but I doubt that it is any good for playing solos unless you play two hand tapping style.

    Also, I recognize Fender Super bullet strings straight away, with a GOOD set of strings it will sound better right away.

    Good eye, those strings are just temporary. I tried to find pure nickel Gibson's or something and had no luck. I like the super bullets on my strats and tele though. They don't fit Gibson though.

    I think those might be straight hinges that have simply bent a little bit over time. Its not very think brass they used.

    I guess your guitar inspired me, I just made myself this body with a German carve and reversed pickup.

    I think you are right. I'm having a heck of a time finding anything like them though. It seems it would be a common thing.

    Well that's pretty. It looks really cool. What color is it going to be?

    It sure does. In fact it makes almost anything look good.

    I know you have been waiting for sound samples of the guitar, I haven't had a chance to record myself playing it yet and my friend that is a professional musician is out of action for a bit. My girlfriends nephew was at the house when I got home from work and he is a professional musician too, so I plugged him in to the Marshall and dialed the gain down so he could let the natural sound of it come through with some nice gritty blues.

    Thank you, I think the pickups sound good too. It's nice to have someone else play it and give feedback too, it gives me a better perspective of how it really sounds. As far as a lefty V goes, it's really tough to get the time to build these guitars then it's hard to let them go. I'm still not really set up for any type of production. Maybe though.

    I had a vision and would someday like to do a koa wood 10 string warlock like the Bich image.jpeg
    Or an 8 string warlock bass like the Bich. image.jpeg
    If I ever come across some good koa I'll do it just because it hasn't been done. I think a warlock would support the extra tuners on the body well. Anyway....someday. I've got a lot of ideas, but executing them takes a lot of preparation and planning and time.
