    Hello,
    This is a thread about my new incoming and impatiently awaited all custom Lupus prototype guitar.
    I some may know, i already have 2 Skervs (Chiroptera and Nebelung). This time i wanted something different and not normally offered by Skerv guys. I really dig the Nebelung's body shape. I wanted a modern shred machine with ntb construction (not available on Nebelung). I also wanted to make my homage to EVH EBMM with a superstrat twist.
    So i ordered an axe with Nebelung shape but without carving. Just flat top with binding, but with comfy forearm cut. It's been over a year from making an order. They quoted me 10-12 months, but taking into account the custom job (custom shape, custom jigs etc), it is quite understandable to wait a month longer.
    The guitar is being finished now and it should arrive in 1-2 weeks. When it arrives i will make full review and photos.
    Specs:
    NTB
    Neck: selected flame maple sides, rosewood stripes, pear center. Highly figured birdseye maple fretboard and head veneer.
    Body wings: swamp ash
    Top: 5A highly figured quilted maple, selected by me from their vault
    Bridge: OFR Pro
    Black hardware
    SD Full Shred Set.

    I want to share some pics showing the progress of my dream guitar (i hope it will be one):

    One of the better Skervy designs. Looks like a riff off BC rich.

    Thanks, mate. It is more like Ibby RG meets Jackson Soloist meets EBMM EVH Axis.

    Yeah FS are very underrated pickups. Very tight, articulate but not shrill. I can believe that the bridge pu is not for everyone, but the neck pu is just great allrounder.
