I make guitars out of my workshop as a hobby. All the puzzle pieces for this guitar were cut out and routed to shape by hand, countless hours involved in getting it done. A real labour of love to manufacture, and a one off, unqiue piece unlike any other, I surely hope so anyway!

Great sounding guitar, insane amount of sounds possible through the switching options.

It has been sitting around for a few weeks and has received a couple of minor dings. There is a imperfection from the epoxy grainfil evident on the back to the right of the bottom cavity cover. Also some chipping around the 12th fret inlay which was repaired. Other than that it is a brand new instrument barely played.

If you'd like to see other examples of my work please comment and I'll stick some additional photos up.
