    I think it is no secret that Rob's business has grown to the point where he can no longer interface directly with the customer. We've remained in close contact over the last few months, and I am now pleased to officially announce my new role in sales and promotion for KxK Guitars. You can reach me at sales@kxkguitars.com for official correspondence. If you want to order a guitar, e-mail me there.

    We have another one month special coming down the pike, so stay tuned to this thread. Hopefully, I'll be able to announce it tonight. I just have to confirm with Rob first. I'm not sure if this will be a limited run or not. :yesway:

    EDIT: And here it is! Sii-7R limited time offer - $1499, last day to order is April 17th.

    3 piece Maple
    Mahogany Body
    Ebony or Maple Fretboard (Blank)
    27" scale 16" radius
    Radiused body top
    24 6120 frets
    TonePros tune-o-matic bridge, string through body
    Sperzel locking tuners
    Dunlop flushmount straplocks
    Graphtech nut
    SD Blackouts or Dimarzio D Sonic/Air Norton
    Volume/Tone control/3 way switch
    G&G case
    Clear hand applied finish
    Black KxK logo

    Options:
    Carved top - $50
    Color stain on the neck, body, headstock (black, red, blue, green) - $50

    The guitar will look like this, minus the inlays and pickups. Rob uses the standard sized Blackouts, so you can take advantage of active pickups in a universal pickup route:

    $750 is due at the time of order, with the balance and shipping ($40 US, $120 most other countries) due at the time of completion. We're offering a 93 Day Build Guarantee on this: if your order isn't shipped 93 days after receiving your deposit, then you get $100 off your order. :yesway:

    Having said that, keep in mind that you have three months to come up with the rest of the cash. Don't place an order if you're not going to have $789 around when your guitar is done. We've had problems with a few guys bailing on us when their guitar is done, and this is the kind of behavior that really hurts a small builder.

    Thanks guys! :yesway:

    Rob and I are still hashing out the details of how sales will be handled in the future. I know securing dealerships is a priority for both of us, and, unfortunately, this will drive up prices. If I can sell directly, and make just enough to cover my time and expenses, then we should be able to keep prices down. I care more about putting guitars into the hands of working musicians than turning a profit.

    As a result of my new role, I will be changing how I post about the brand from this point forward. I don't want to come off as a shill for the brand, so I will be refraining from offering buying advice. Instead, I will take on a role more like Frank Falbo or Mike Sherman, answering questions and keeping the board up to date about new developments at KxK Guitars. Besides, I think there are enough fans of the guitars here to make recommendations without me having to. :lol:

    I thank all the customers who took a chance on KxK, and we look forward to making more happy customers in the future. As Mike said, I got this point because I love playing Rob's instruments, and I will continue to make sure that the interests of all seven stringers are addressed in the future.

    You know, "stickied" takes on a different meaning after all the "touch me where I pee" comments. :lol:

    Yup companies LOVE to have people who use and are passionate about their products selling for them. That's why VHT, Diezel, Bernie Rico Jr, and many of the other companies I'm dealing with for my new store are as ecstatic to be working with me as I with them.

    This is a great opportunity Dave. It's cool that we're both getting involved in that side of the business a bit. So far it's been very rewarding for me and I haven't even made money yet. I wish you the best of luck :)

    Let me know what Rob has to say :yesway:

    Congrats,

    Although, I'm a bit let down, I thought there would be some sexy new guitar pictures in here.
