    Mind blown, probably the best guitars I ever touched... Every single thing is spot on, they sound glorious and play godly. Anyway check the pics...

    You're getting Junico or some other model?

    Man, I'm completely blown by these two, can't decide which one I like better..

    Some other model, 4 years in the making :eek:

    But yea, I almost bought a Junico as well. I really like the limited ones he did with flame tops and binding.

    4 years?? Lordy, i didnt know he's so booked..

    I love solid colors, actually if I could I would paint all of my guitars in solid colors.. Getting old, I guess.

    He's probably 2-3 years booked, but was just a lame circumstance with the dealer (see signature ;-))

    I know what you mean, I've had a few exchanges with him about a hartung and decided not to deal with him.
    Please post yours when you get it. We need more hartungs in the forum.

    Yea, actually lingering BS with that arrangement was what stopped me from taking delivery before a month long visit to the states. I should have a NGD when I get back on March 23/24th though. It's a crazy good looking guitar, but I kept saying "please make it darker" "Can you make it like this mockup?" "Can it look like this guitar?" etc, etc., for months, and I still have a hunch it's not going to be the color I wanted.

    But the build quality looks top notch, and since it's just him, I suspect the Junicos are built to the same standards.

    Now the question is Hartung or Huber??
    BTW, congrats! Looks very nice. I am with you, i am a little bit bored with the natural looking guitar too.

    I owned Huber Krautster II, stunning guitar, topnotch like these Junicos.
    However, I feel Jumico a bit more, love the mahogany neck more than the maple one. And the Junicos come with one piece bodies vs Krautsters 2 piece.
    But you can't go wrong with any of them, I am sure you gonna be blown and end up on the hunt for another haha.
    I will get me another Krautster 100% or even a Surfmaster which I like a bit better mainly cause of the design/looks.
    In fact, I'm seriously thinking of selling pretty much most of my gzitars and keep just one of these two and addinf a Wirebird tele and one of Hubers anove mentioned guitars.

    Narad, Im sure you got tons of build pics, don't be shy. :)

    But then what are you going to do for 7s? I think there's a nice white Orca 7 at guitars-shop.de that's sat for a while and probably up for heavy negotiation.

    Ha, in due time.
