    Poland churning out fantastic quality luthiers by the bulk it seems. Very nice wood selection and cool designs!

    Lately I met Łukasz and had a chance to play his guitars. I must say, that I was quite sceptical – I didn’t like the first project, „Uberstrat”, at all. The bartione SC 7 string was looking much better, but still not really my kind of thing. Latest singlecut design was looking much better and there’s nothing I would change in Vesuvio. The most important thing – how does the guitar feel in hands and how they sound?
    I played on Etna (with two single-coil pickups), Vesuvio (the one with gold hardware, with humbuckers), and SC7 (P90). First thing to notice – fretwork and setup. My left hand hever felt so good. :)! Setup on all guitars was great, with perfect fretwork. That combined with 14-20 radius makes playing them smooth and effortless. In about a year I plan to refret at least one of my guitars and I already asked Łukasz about it. Neck profiles are really comfortable, even the fat neck of Etna felt great and natural.
    7 strings are not really my cup of tea, so I can’t say much about this one. Sounds really powerful and interesting. Due to P90 it was maybe more ‘sludgy’ than super-modern djent thing. ;)
    Vesuvio was my favurite. Also not modern djent-machine, but cleans, crunches and distorted sounds from classic rock to heavy metal was it’s thing. Very comfortable, great looking, and versatile.
    Etna was biggest surprise! With eyes closed, you wouldn’t believe it has single-coil pickup in bridge position. ;) But does all the „telecaster-things” really well. As I mentioned, it has the fattest neck of this three guitars, but still felt great. And looked really nice! Transparent nitro finish with maple fretboard and plain maple top with nice little black burst – really classy and simple in a good way. I could own something between Etna and Vesuvio… :)
    As I mentioned, I was very sceptical about these guitars, but they defended themselves without a question.  Even though they were just a prototypes, you already can feel the really high quality while playing them.
