I'm myself endorsing Invictus Guitars with my band ( The Nocturnal Chaos ).
Trust me that the building process is approved by awesome players ( Monuments, Aliases, Born Of Osiris, Vildhjarta, etc ! )
BTW, they're also only picking some great and well selected piece of wood.

So IMO you should defo go for an Invictus, I'm saying it not only 'cause I'm endorsing Invictus, but because I trust them and you should too, because they're doing some precise and solid guitars dude !


And if my words didn't convinced you, just look at the pics bellow

You obviously like it or you wouldn't have it

I make no assertion that looking at something from a few feet away is the best way to judge, which is why I made a point of saying such. It really didn't look.... It.... For me. Maybe I'm missing something a close inspection would help with.

Well fair play to mr mod.

Someone asked for pictures, I posted pictures...never mind! If my previous post was deemed advertisement then who am I to argue.

The point is that I totally understand people have great trepidation over this workshop. I get it. There have been plenty of people jumping on board, and not too much follow through yet.

I can only say that none of these guitars are machined, at all. Expect the outline of the body and cavities for hardware. It's supposed to be a very organic approach to instrument building. If you don't like this approach then there are other fabulous places you can get builds from, with great workshops!

Anyone is welcome to come see these guitars, and we have a clinic session soon. We are at the UK Tech Metal Festival for those attending to also try them out. If you're concerned about these guitars then by all means come along to these different events- judge for yourself, we aren't hiding a thing.

Agreed. It looks like a disformed phalange...like...like it wasn't in the womb for the full 9 months.

I love the guitar, looks very clean, but that bottom horn looks like it's a birth defect. If upper fret access was their aim, they could have still kept the horn at a reasonable size without compromising the strength of the guitar.

-Vik duality 8 fanned fret-
-Vik DCA baritone 6 string

This just in:
Apologies to the other Abasi fanbois out there....I have just recently - yesterday actually - moved to a new favorite guitarist. stated a relavent member of the music community.

The design isn' for everyone, but it's a tried and tested design. People told Strandberg he wasn't going to get anywhere and his headless designs were never going to be sturdy or practical...look at him now

But it's strong believe me. I've never really understood the douchebags running around annihilating their gear onstage....I suppose in the 'djent' scene it's not so bad.

Guitar under you chin, chickenbobbing along! (love it).

It'll take a knock and then some. We walked guitars with horns just like that in to a door at full pace...we came off much worse that the guitar. The door didn't do so well either.

I'm curious about the Vildhjarta incident.
We have decided to terminate our agreement with invictus guitars and send back the guitars we've received from them as they couldnt meet our requirements.

Back on stocking up on ibby xl's! ^^
I'd find the Ibby thing somewhat insulting - and i don't need no scooter.
Care to elaborate how something like that came about?

i think though thats the problem, is that the company doesnt seem to bring anything new to the table(not that that happens to be a requirement). building guitars just to make great guitars is just as good of a reason. I think im just talkin about the people who are wondering why the hubbub all of a sudden. Vik and Strandberg have something which distinguishes them above other builders. and so i think people are trying to figure out whats new about this company. Once they find it(or dont) then the fuzz will die out.

Who told strandberg he wouldn't get anywhere?

These invictus threads are like a guilty pleasure, they remind me of Hello magazine or something.

I hear plenty of people, particularly those on different builders forums (not this one) said his approach didn't work. And no we don't innovate in the same way that Strandberg does, we just have a bit more of an organic take on classic guitar building.


Yes. This thread is pretty much a gossip column. If you want more information over the Vildhjarta stuff see their FB page/ our FB page. I think we can all just agree that nobody's still quite sure of what to make of our workshop right now

I think a line can probably be drawn under this little chat fest now.

I never said anything about you not innovating, just thought the strandberg example was a little odd.

You don't nee to justify your business to me, if you look through the threads I've said several times I totally understand the business model and think you approach the perfect price point in the market. I also think you should promote that price point like hell.

I've got to be honest, if you aesthetic were a little more to my liking, I'd be tempted to order something based solely on your price point, the fact that your a small British business also makes me want to support you. You may even remember asking if we could modify the aesthetic at one stage.

Still, I wouldn't try and stop the gossip personally, just rise above it, if you're products and service are as good as you say it'll speak for itself, it very early to be judging or defending from either party I think.

Just my 2 pence.

Are you referring to this thread? Because it looks to me like the only one saying anything to you was the owner of invictus(and a few other people teasing you about the scooter thing).
