    I believe this is the guy who made Wes Borland's custom axes.

    Yeah, those are my favourites of Wes' customs. Kinda like PRSs but even more elegant and yet warped slightly.

    I'm diggin the body shape... but I'm not diggin the neck. The nut/low fret width, and the connection to the body/high fret width = HUGE difference.

    Yea, the neck does look like it has a big taper. That might be the camera angle though. Its very violinish looking. I like it! I think it would look better with a straight 7 headstock though.

    Oh, totally. I'd just change out that trem padding so it was black instead of looking like it came from a pool table ;D

    Dammit. I'd bid on the thing if only it was a hardtail.

    I think it may look even worse, the trem pocket I mean, because it appears that the trem plate isn't quite level...

    It looks like the trem was changed from something with a bigger plate, like a lo-TRS, to an OFR7. Looks like a solid guitar.
