    I've seen some of their stuff floating around on ebay, but the prices are kind of crazy for a body. They wanted 500$ for a headless body that takes strandberg necks/hardware. :ugh:

    They must be hitting up the local dispensary too often.

    There are a few companies out there like this. But, once you add all the parts on, the price isn’t all that great. And the stuff you’d have to do on your own is quite labor intensive, and not necessarily easy. It just makes more sense for me to pay someone to take it from soup to nuts.

    I just bought one of their kits on eBay. I already have some parts laying around to put in it so the total cost isn't too bad but I'll report back on the quality when I get it

    Late to the conversation but I think this is the same guy that did Neko guitars. He uses those same 3 lines on some of the GOC guitars that he used on Neko... also both are from St. Louis. GOC stands for grumpy old cat... Neko’s Logo was a cat. Pretty sure it’s the same guy!

    I got my guitar in the mail. Can confirm that it is indeed Neko guitars. That being said, I'm pretty happy with it for the price I got it for.

    Can you be more specific? Like, what does it compare to, and what are the pros / cons?

    Definitely Neko... so I'm gonna say don't give the guy your money. He ran off with people's money IIRC.

    I have one.
    Its really really cool. Its the Vajra headless. Mine is 01 too which is cool. SS frets. Ergo neck shape. 26-25 multi scale. Alder body with antique stained maple neck/board. Glow in the dark block side inlays etc. Cool pickguard too.

    Mines going to get Blackhawk alnico's and a LED Killswitch in it.
