Thats nice!
I plan to send him and other great builders Info / presskit of my band when we are finished recording our album in a professional studio. We will be shopping our music to labels, so I thought why not shop around for great endorsements as well!

Congrats! I really like his guitars!

I put down a deposit for a Hesperian sixer. Bernie was very accommodating of a couple of little customizations that I asked for. Super excited about this epic deal!

Hesperian Slant
24 frets
26 1/3 scale
hip shot
maple neck through
flame maple top
DiMarzio LiquiFire and CrunchLab direct mount, non slant mounted

I wonder if I should go for the headstock with the extra little spike, it looks pretty cool.

So excited, I want to be cyrogenically frozen until the guitar is ready to be shipped driving me NUTS

You mean the Diva HS? That's not a bad idea. I might have to do that as well....

Mine will be a Hesperian Slant Top 725 with 26 1/3" scale and the Crunch Lab / Liquifire combo. I'm trying to decide between the mahogany neck vs. maple neck...

Also, some of you are talking about going with the Diva headstock. Is it an option? I've been thinking about it as well, and was under the impression that it's too late for those kind of changes to be made?

well i think that since bernie got way more responses then he projected, that he decided to go "what the hell" and do some orders that are more complicated. he sounds like a hell of a guy, he knows he can get 3000 a pop but he is giving all of us such a great deal. he is probablly going to make a lot of money from this as well. this is just a win win. i stayed up all night youtubing brj guitars and reading reviews and interviews with bernie. im stoked.

I just want to give everyone the heads-up.


I haven't asked him yet, but it is VERY likely that if you were not in the first 5 orders of each model, then you will not be getting these in February, but later. So don't start bitching if this is the case!

Made a deposit for a Hesperian 727
Flame maple top (possibly with blackburst edges, haven't decided on that yet though)
Maple neckthru
Mahogany wings
Hipshot
Bare Knuckle Painkillers w/ black cover
26 1/3 scale

I wasn't planning on getting another guitar for another year or so, but I couldn't pass this deal up! Guess I'm gonna have to wait a little longer to get my Axe FX Ultra... .... it, who needs a savings account! lol

Yeah, I know he mentioned a 90-120 day build time for the additional orders in the BF thread. Sounds pretty ambitious to me, but I'm sure there are some economies of scale to be realized when building a bunch of very similar guitars. For the time being, I'm optimistic and hoping for the best, but its not like my life will be ruined if I don't get my guitar in the estimated time frame.

ignore my earlier post about not having money to put down a deposit because i'm saving for a wedding. my fiancee actually encouraged me to spring for a 7 string hesperian. this is why she's my fiancee.

i put down my deposit earlier today, and i'm gonna hammer out the specs with Bernie next week. so ....in boosted

I have an 827 with 2 pups and flamed maple going. I was considering getting that wicked violet stain, but I think I'll keep it natural. (I have a custom Jekyll on order that will have a top stain, so this'll be different.)

For those of you who have orders in but are keeping the specs under wraps, why not let everyone know what they are? I appreciate the suspense, but if you've got a good idea some of the rest of us might benefit.
