    Probably the best headless model Ive seen.

    Max Dawe is a great lad and his resin tops and overall builds look stunning. Here is the prototype for guitar shows -

    Headless guitars with junk in the trunk are crimes against god.

    Not a fan of the laundry-bag texture, looks like a Call of Duty skin from 2007

    Could have been cool without the dragonscale bits, just a white/blue/purple swirl :-/

    ah really? I love the resin textures haha

    each to their own I guess.

    The whole back of the guitar looks stunning though.

    bruh kryptek camo is where it's at. all this guitar needs now is a picatinny rail so I can attach my trijicon acog and be uber tacticool :D

    that being said, I like the matching of the backplate to the top and the overall design.

    That's the one thing I think is cool about this, although that design itself...

    Well, that's different for sure! Don's know what to think about it... It's so busy looking with all that different stuff going on. Unique piece! Congrats.

    What's going on at the end of the fretboard? Some kind of truss rod adjustment cover? I guess the 24th fret is just there for show. No bending allowed.

    Other than that, I am kind of into the finish on the top, pickups, and the neck. The back has too wood clash for me. Interested to see how this gets finished with the remaining hardware. Also hope he cuts off the string ends at some point.

    The design is cool but the exaggerated amount of vowels in the name tilts me

    I follow him on FB, and he’s got some really cool resin stuff. I’m not a particular fan of this model, (I also don’t like trunk junk on headless) but it is crazy how clean and tight people can get their builds now the CNC. Even up close that thing is dialed in. Looks super professional in the woodworking.

    not fan of the dragon scale and pickup bobins. Top looks awesome, but that scale takes it away for me. Would rather white bobins with that color scheme

    He still has all the electronics to fit. This was a real quick test fit to make sure it was playing ok etc before all the strings came straight off again.

    Obviously when its 100% completed and ready for the show he will snip the strings down further.

    Hahah.

    I don't see how this is all that different from Ibby swirls. I dig it.
    I think it would've been better with a dark fretboard and no junk in the trunk though.
