    SHE'S HERE :hbang:

    I'm off to find a working amp lead but there's one pic I took when she turned up, I suspect there will be many more soon enough...

    If you want to know anything about it you'd better ask Dan because to be "Fwank" I've forgotten most of the specifics but basically 30-28", Ziricote top/fretboard, push-push volume/pickup knobs.

    -A very pleased owner

    yep... it's not too weighty because of it's size.

    I really, really hate trying to get a good picture of ziricote :squint: I'll have to wait until tomorrow or maybe the day after to get good pictures while there's daylight, I suspect that I may never take a photo that shows it properly but the ones you took the previous week are as close as it gets I think.

    Right now I'm a tad drained (read: stressed and pissed at life :lol: ) so I'm not going to drag this post on but this is an improvement on the first in every aspect in small but significant ways, it makes me wonder how much more awesome your higher spec instruments are in the flesh.

    And er...this one ain't ever going up for sale, FACT MOTHA-FUCKAH :hbang:

    First off... congrats on the new Oni!

    I still can't get over how nice mine is... It's the most comfortable, most playable guitar I've ever touched. And, it sounds amazing. These Onis really are the cream of the crop.

    Are you and Dan trying to get me GASing for another Oni? Yours is beautiful!

    Oh, and I'd love to see more pics! :)

    Heheh, I've uploaded a few pics onto my livevideo account LiveVideo.com - The World is Watching They might take a little while to be approved though, if it hasn't been approved by the time I'm back from college I'll do the horsework (minimizing file size) myself and upload 'em here.

    -EDIT, here are the two full shots fo'shizzle.
