    Yes sir. As cool as 7 extended range are, I AM a 6 string 25.5 guy and always will be. That H7 plays wonderfully for something so out of my character though... and anything shorter than 27 scale that drop A flat wouldn't work too well IMO.

    Either way. Yep. :)

    Yeah I literally began dancing random dances from the 70s to the 80s after Patrick sent me these pictures.

    Stop... hammertime....

    Just because I forgot... here are pics of the "joint" two piece ELM. Instead of just gluing it together, Patrick did something pretty cool, using a shark tooth... joint. Never seen anything like this except on some acoustic guitars.

    Pretty cool and unique if you ask me. He borrowed parts from his Sharkdroid.

    Why not just get one piece Mahogany you ask?

    I had the Huf dance at my job too when he sent me pics of the spalted maple :lol: I have to be very careful not to yell too loud at my job when I get update pics too.

    I hate FEDEX...my hipshot tuners are in Johannesburg (South Afrika)...they sent it to swezland Afrika instead of Switzerland...

    Those are the two most beautiful pieces of maple I've seen in a while.

    :drool:

    Can't wait for more.

    Far from it dude... just unloading and reloading. :) Looks real limitless but you sell all your gear to re-load, and decide to have select pieces instead of quantity. This is like the line up of my dreams really.

    12 years in the making maybe?

    The Blackmachine is a beast by the way. :evil:

    Thanks my Netherland brosef!

    Patrick actually was always open and did use maple necks/tops. I don't know why anyone wouldn't just ask and he'd do. I guess those in the market for a Hufschmid Guitar have already the need for his signature distressed/mahogany look. Which in its own right looks bad ass to me. I just wanted something more crazy in my head.

    I DO think there was an issue of his maple supplier that he used to make necks though, which explains no maple necks for awhile. He couldn't find the right supplier whether that be bulk of wood or seasoning and what not.

    The one he liked went out of business and only now has he found a supplier that works for him and gives him awesome stuff like the birdseye maple you see. Works for me.

    Maple and Mahogany necks... can't really lose. :)
