    Hello SSO!

    DJC Guitars is a new company out of Sydney. I am proud to finally show all you gear heads what we have been working on as it has been a long time in the making.
    Our guitars are outsourced for CNC in North America. They are then sent to us for all the final and finishing details.

    On our Facebook page we are getting ready to build an in-stock guitar. We want to build what you want to see - so we are letting you decide on the specs of this guitar.
    Once the build is completed the guitar will be for sale at a discounted price. The catch is that the more people that "like" the Facebook page and vote on the specs, the larger the discount is.

    So follow the links in the signature and share our post on Facebook.
    We will be posting all our updates and in progress shots across here and our other social media accounts.

    Our website is still undergoing revisions and changes. We are in the process of getting better photos taken of the guitars.

    This thread is nothing without pictures so:

    Looks good. Who are you using for OEM? Best Guitar Parts? USA Custom Guitars? Fast Guitars? We have a pile of good OEM's here.

    Hey guys,

    Just a quick update. We are getting closer to releasing the polls on Facebook so you can all decide on the specs of our next in stock guitar. Follow the link in my signature to 'like' the Facebook page.

    Aside from the in stock guitar - we are doing a small run strictly limited to 5 guitars. They will also be heavily discounted with plenty of great timber upgrades.

    The specs we are thinking for the run are as follows (but subject to change)
    - 1pc swamp ash body
    - choice of either; ziricote, claro walnut, wenge or ebony top
    - 1pc flame maple neck
    - fretboard is undecided at this stage
    - stainless steel frets
    - our DJC custom pickups from the guitarmory in your choice of cover
    - 1 volume, 3way 4pdt toggle with coil splits in middle position
    - sperzel tuners
    - hipshot bridge
    - oil finish

    We are aiming for the $2000AUD - this may change slightly but this special will not happen again.
    Please register for interest through our Facebook page.

    The first in a series of polls for you to design our next in-stock guitar build has been released.
    Head to our Facebook page, "like" it and make sure you vote.

    The more people that vote on the polls, the larger the discount is on the guitar once it is completed and for sale - so share the post!

    The body wood has been decided! 1pc Alder won.
    Here is the second poll in the series and it is for you to vote on the top wood.
    If you want to see something that isn't on the list - you are able to add it. Share this post with more gear heads so the top wood you want to see is voted the most.

    I just put a deposit down with DJC. Amazing specs. Ill post updates about the build experience for other prospective buyers. Daniel was a real pleasure to work with discussing specs and everything. If that's any indication of how the build will turn out, then its going to be fantastic.

    Theres just over 24hrs left to vote on our next in-stock guitar build top wood. The body wood has been chosen and it was a 1pc Alder body that came in the most popular.
    Quilted maple is in front for the top wood as it stands at the moment - but have your say. Follow the link to vote on what you want to see.
