    Hey guys!!
    Based on the feedback I have received from Allan Marcus regarding the NorthStar 6 prototype I am confident I have a winner on my hands. Nothing beats road testing a new model and how better to do that then getting dragged across country in a van and a used daily in front of thousands of rabid death metal fans.

    So now because I am so confident that the specs and shape are exactly what they need to be I am working on offering a second version with a more traditional slab body with forearm and belly cuts and my super comfy heel.

    This slab body version will start at $1000 with an SKB case, Hipshot hardware and Kent Armstrong pickups and be available for purchase with lots and lots of wood and pickup options.

    If you or somebody you know is in he market for an S type guitar you know there are only a few options worth looking at. If you want an S type guitar with 24 frets there are even fewer and if you want an S type guitar with 24 frets and a roasted maple neck and stainless steel frets there even fewer still and none under $2k, until now.

    I keep looking at this and thinking, " this model in an 8 string with 8 string Floyd = everyone happy and world peace." Is that just me?

    Don't be so sure! If Bill and Ted have anything to say about it, shredding on a guitar will align the universe and bring peace among men. :lol:
