    Yep, another new model for 2016! I wanted a pointy V for a while, and I finally got around to making one. Like the Stardust, this one is named in honor of another musical icon.

    This prototype has a black limba body and neck, pale moon ebony fretboard, head plate, and truss rod cover, quilted maple top. 25.5 scale, 22 stainless steel frets (24 is of course, an option), black binding all around with ivoroid binding at the position markers. The finish will be trans white. Base pricing will begin around $2750, this one is $3150.

    New shapes certainly don't disappoint. I'm going to have to sell my wife on the idea of taking a road trip to Texas!

    <---- Touches it then blushes and runs away. Then comes back and softly says "Hello, Revolution. I like you a lot. We could do bad things together."

    I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that this is likely going to be for sale. I was planning on keeping it for myself, but I can always make another.

    You're obviously gonna have a hard time selling it so I'll just send you my address now so that we can get that out of the way.

    Seriously though... been gassing very hard for something pointy but everything I see is just not quite what I'm after. If/ when you do put it up for sale, I'll be anxious to get in touch with you.

    Regardless... absolutely gorgeous! Can't wait to see this one finished.

    Thanks homie! I can say with 99.9% certainty that it'll be available. Hell, maybe I'll even drive it down to you in Austin.

    That would be far more than a treat... it would be an honor. I've got love in my heart and metal shards in my blood, so this would indeed be the perfect home lol!

    I should point out that this guitar is available. I was going to keep it for myself, but I can always make another one. $3150 + free shipping in the US. 50% down holds it.

    I should have it back from paint within a couple weeks, so I'd say mid September.
