    Hello Again SSO!

    As I'm wrapping up my December run, I'd like to let you all know I have now opened a fanned fret/multiscale run, and have ONE build slot left for January. I will not be taking on any more orders until the end of March, where I will have 2 positions available for another set of fanned (or regular) guitar builds.


    To keep the prices low, I am locking in certain specs. These are:
    6 or 7 string only
    Hipshot (locking) Tuners and Single Saddle Bridges
    No Paint

    And as always, I have these extra options as upgrades:
    Magnetic wooden cavity covers
    Glow in the dark side dots (Blue, Pink, or White)
    Pale Moon Ebony/Cocobolo/Zebrawood fretboards
    Set Necks are a free upgrade
    Flamed Ash Neck Veneers
    Free headstock style change
    More options at: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1sIqlKtqi2fIWdY47YRZycCO3pw9-1cqw5tjNmstXCU4/viewform?c=0&w=1

    Here are the 2 current planned builds, with an estimated build time of 13 weeks or less.
    (My December run of 3 guitars is nearing completion after 4 weeks, with holiday break)

    25-26.5" fanned SHS6. Curly redwood (reclaimed) top and neck thru 5-piece neck.

    26-27" futura. Walnut back w/ 3/4" wenge top. 5 piece rosewood/wenge neck w/ custom wound pickups
    [​IMG]

    The deposit required is ~600$US, and the total is about 1600$ US. I will leave this run offer open until this time next week, and then I will carry on with business as usual.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me here or through my facebook page (link below)

    Cheers!

    I have a couple questions, aimed primarily at the SHS6 (I'd be interested in a 7, of course).
    What body wood are you using or is that buyer's-choice?
    Which single saddles are you using?
    What is your glow in the dark side dot? Luminlay or other?
    Which pups do you put in? Buyer's-choice or custom wound like your Futura?
    Do you have an example of your headstock options?
    Do you offer a no-inlay option? If one wanted a PME fretboard upgrade for example.

    All I could think of off the top of my head.

    Body wood is your choice. The available options are on my spec sheet, as well as anything that can be ordered online.
    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1sIqlKtqi2fIWdY47YRZycCO3pw9-1cqw5tjNmstXCU4/edit

    Hipshot mono-saddles are what will be used. The gold ones come on a black baseplate.

    It will be a glow in the dark pigment applied as a paste in a secret base ingredient.

    Pickups are anything on the online market, and I have a custom winder from the US who has agreed to wind custom sets, available "slanted" to match the fan of the board.

    Headstocks can be seen at:

    Inlays are totally up to you. I actually prefer to do none, but whatever you want I will do.

    If you would like to discuss this in greater detail, I recommend messaging me through my facebook page.

    Cheers,

    Pending permission from Ola, the last slot will have been taken ;). Still PM me if interested though! I'm always happy to discuss specs for future builds.

    You put out the words "multiscale" and "under 2k USD" and people go nuts! I don't think the pale moon ebony or the new headless shape design helped any :ugh:

    Anyways, safe to say this run is sold out. I'm not even thinking about any more orders until... April?

    Thanks for the interest everyone :) It means a lot.

    8 strings headstocks are huge.

    That's all I can say about that!

    Curious about your work in progress headless body. Cool to see you're Canadian as well!

    Once the burl and .Strandberg hardware arrives I'll be able to make a template and finish the CAD file.
    Feel free to guess the species, because this piece will be nuts!

    That's rad man! Could you pm me a rough quote for a headless six string lefty model? Aiming for a figured koa top, swamp ash body and ebony board. Would probably go for a juggernaut set.

    it'll have fanned frets so I guess it's a part of this run! I'll be releasing my headless shape sometime next week.

    Oh so you're the one who snagged that top! Good job dude. I had my eyes on that for a while. I believe it's from the same supplier I'm thinking of. They have some great buckeye

    hehe, we got lucky with that one. It was a fresh listing though and 40$ cheaper then what he had his eye on before. SO glad we made the switch.
