    A brand new Zoov 26.5" 6 string now up for sale. The body is spalted maple with a 3 piece Walnut and maple neck. Stonewall custom wound pickups, Hipshot fixed bridge and Sperzel locking tuners. This is probably the lightest instrument I have built to date I estimate that it's around 5 pounds. Asking for $3,500 that includes a case but not shipping.

    Hello Nick Lacroix from Zoov Guitars here to share what I have been working on. A lot has happened over the past few months as I have moved into a new shop in Manitou Springs, Colorado as well as taken on a partner. So here is what we've been working on.

    First is a custom 26.5" 7 string for Will O'bryan. Will sent me this design drawn on a napkin. From there I made a to scale drawing and this is what we've come up with. It gets 1 Lace Sensor deathbar in the bridge position and just a volume. He also requested a reverse headstock.

    Here is a custom 28" 7 string for Ian Ferguson who plays for The Human Condition. This is easily one of the gnarliest pieces of wood I have ever gotten my hands on. This guitar gets Lace Sensor Xbar/Deathbar combo and a Tonepros Tune-o-matic bridge. There will also be a killswitch.

    Another custom order this one for Tom Murphy who plays in a band called bombscare. 26.5" Scale 6 string Lace Deathbucker set, Hipshot fixed bridge, Sperzel Locking tuners.

    Any pics of how that headstock design holds up after a few months of use? Looks pretty fragile.

    I have never had one break. Had guitars tour the country with bands like Bermuda, Deserters, Mureau, and Lifeforms. Lifeforms actually played euroblast in Germany. Never had an issue with the design. I have never had someone suggest the design looks fragile either.

    The long, thin point just looks easily snapped/dulled. I intended no offence by it.

    O no offense was taken sir. You just caught me off gaurd a little bit with that question. It may not be quite as thin on the point as the pictures make it seem. You would have to do something pretty epic to snap the top off the headstock.

    Here is a new 7 string custom for Will O'bryan of Deserters Strung up and ready for action! It was a lot of fun taking Wills design drawings and bringing them to life.
