    Finished... Our 1980s San Dimas Super-strat inspired "DS", left-handed version with archtop body. Alder body, Maple/Wenge neck, Indian Rosewood fretboard (24 frets), Gotoh hardware and Super Distortion pup. Available to buy now if anyone would like it. Can be shipped from end of next week (05/10/17) after final checks and setup. Sadly, I cannot ship outside of the UK. Message or email for more information and/or payment details.

    Prototype DC-III ready for assembly - still not sure whether I like it or not. Fantastic upper fret access and lightweight for a Sapele body (archtop). Neck is Maple and Wenge 3-piece with Makore fretboard. Gotoh TOM bridge/381 tuners and Kent Armstrong Super Distortion (bridge)/STH-1 (neck) pickups. Will be finishing this one up and testing it out over the next couple of days, but it can be reserved now if you'd like to own it.

    Prototype DC-III finished and setup. Plays (shreds) seamlessly with excellent upper fret access and superb high gain tone from those Kent Armstrongs... And that's if I do say so myself [​IMG] Keeping it back for a week to settle but it can be yours if you'd like it - email or message me to discuss pricing.

    Ah, sorry I gotcha now. This is a custom order - I wouldn't work with Buckeye Burl out of choice :D Will be going to the US when finished.

    And finally tonight: our DC3 prototype is now in auction - our last prototype sale for the foreseeable future. Already a sh@te-load of interest but still going for a steal - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/172911787801 This one can be shipped worldwide - no CITES restrictions.
