Very late NSD (new Stinnett day). Review and Pics inside

So I had this one for quite some time now, and I guess itís time to write a review as I know many people are pretty interested in Wills work.

1) Specs
Stinnett M6 body shape with C headstock
25.5Ē scale
Mahogany body with highly figured quilted maple top and matching headstock
Maple/Walnut 5 piece set neck
Ebony fretboard with custom red epoxy EKG inlay
EMG 89 bridge/SA neck with double battery mode
Tonepros TOM bridge with strings through body
Nitro finish
Oiled neck

2) Quality
This is a high quality instrument. The detail Will puts in his work is remarkable.
First of he provides whatever you expect from a custom guitar. High quality woods. High quality hardware (ex. hipshot locking tuners as a standard).
The fretwork is flawless. Even my custom 24 doesnít have such smooth fret edges.
The colour is just magnificent. Gives a very 3D effect on the mapleÖ and the nitro finish is superb.
And there are a few small details that positively surprised me, like the flame maple engraved trussrod cover which is also magnetic btw. No screws here folks.
Oh, and the very sturdy hard sell case.

3) Playability
I have to admit I was a bit sceptical on this part. I didnít know what to expect.
But when this thing arrived I was stunned. THE feel for me.
A neck not too chunky but not too thin either. A bit on the wide side fretboard and a flattened D shape on the back.
TBH it feels almost like my Dellinger but slightly flatter on the back and a tad wider on the board. VERY comfortable and easy to play.
Someone pointed out in my other thread that the neck-body angle was too much.
Well it looks like that but again it feels just right. The forearm contour combined with the risen TOM bridge brings my right arm to a very comfortable position.

4) Overall
I am very satisfied with my purchase. First off the price is just too low for such craftsmanship.
And I am very pleased for my aesthetic choices too. Flame maple neck binding.
Very discreet red epoxy inlay (itís almost like a blank fretboard. The inlay only shows on certain angles).
Only drawback was the built time, but then again I hit rush hour hahahaha. Now the built times on Wills timetable look way more appealing.

But WALET Y U NO MONEYS?


On to the shitty pics pron

Bad lighting didn't help



first the tank box and packing

Beautiful guitar! I've been very interested in one like the claro walnut top guitar he built. Great to hear the quality and playability is up there. They all look awesome too.

Congrats on the beautiful axe!

It looks awesome and I am sure it plays amazing. I stumbled upon Stinnett awhile back and put some very serious thought into a custom. I love his designs and available options. Congrats, it looks great.

What was the wait time on one of these? I really like that shape for some reason. Also how is the 24th fret access? I was looking for a luthier to do my dream 7 stringer.
