    Hello,

    i have received my Custom Rusti Guitars Paradox LH-7 ET
    today and i thought that some of you guys might be interested to see the axe.

    First of all, dealing with Claudio is a real pleasure, he took all the time to listen to my
    requirements and did not hesitate to realise any little detail i was asking for.

    The overall communication is superb, i never had to wait for a reply, even if it was
    random chat about this and that.

    Claudio also did everything to make this guitar perfect,
    asking twice before going a step further with the build just to make sure everything is correct!

    As far as the build quality, Claudio is a true master, i have received a stunning and absolutely
    flawless instrument, which nowadays can not be taken as granted considering all the
    shitty scam luthiers out there.

    I also made a build thread a while ago, so if you are interested in the exact
    specs and generally pictures from the build click here
    http://sevenstring.org/threads/rusti-guitars-paradox-lh-7-et-build.318653/

    As i already said, the build quality is extraordinary, everything sits perfectly!
    So far i was not able to find any flaw, which is quite funny as i am a very picky
    person and usually notice any little imperfection immediately.

    The sound is amazing aswell, the whole guitar is resonating when i play it dry,
    amped every note is crystal clear even with high amounts of distortion.

    I was a bit skeptical about the Fishman in the beginning but now i am glad that
    i picked it, i've seem many people declaring them as HYPE but i must disagree,
    no hype the flunece 7 slays!

    This is also my second Evertune guitar and i can not think of playing a regular guitar
    ever again!

    The Evertune bridge is simply the best thing you can do to an electric guitar!
    It's not just about tuning and staying in tune, the whole instrument sounds better
    with an Evertune. The intonation is perfect and whenever you change the strings
    there is no need to stretch them extensively.

    If you have ever recorded a regular guitar you will know what i am talking about
    and why i am so enthusiastic! :D

    As of now i could not be happier and i can't think of any other guitar i would wish for
    at this moment.

    If you do not know who Claudio is, check out his Facebook page "Rusti Guitars"
    and if you are looking for a flawless new Custom guitar this is the place to go!

    Enough of them words here's some pics!

    HNGD!

    I wanna steal the neck, only because he built it backwards, not sure if that was intentional or not...

    However, why doesn't it have strap buttons?

    Thanks! :)
    The headstock is reversed i wanted it that way, looks even more badass than the regular!
    It's a pure Studio guitar so it did not need any strap locks.

    This is one of the few, very very few guitars that I actually think the streaked pale ebony looks good with HNGD

    Dude, thank you! Usually it gets paired with other streaky/stripey woods and the whole thing is too busy IMO.

    I creeped on this whole build process though, classy AF :hbang:

    Is it just me, or the fretwire is really small? Anyway, it looks great, HNGD!

    The zero fret doesn't need to be any bigger than the other frets.

    yeah that's what i was thinking too before but Claudio stated that it has to be bigger.
    i am still a bit confused about this. in fact if you take a regular guitar with a nut,
    all the frets are the same height but if you put a capo on the guitar still works and sounds great so it should actually work the same with the zero fret if you imagine the nut after the first fret to be the capo...

    From what I've read on here, Rusti is one of the best. I haven't played one yet.

    i must say mine is pretty much flawless and very accurately built!
    i am only having slight problems with the Evertune bridge at this moment but it can be fixed.

    I feel like that neck heel needs to be blurred for under 18's. That's ridiculous

    Beautiful guitar, and that fretwork is just immaculate.

    Too bad it's backwards. :p
