    The one you posted on Facebook with both the raised elevation and the arm contour is GORGEOUS, best of both worlds for sure!

    Kinda quiet for new photos at the moment; everything I'm working on right now is pretty much either for NAMM or finishing up models that have been discontinued, but this was released on Thanksgiving, and I was one happy Sully:



    And I believe this hits the newsstands 12/1 or thereabout:

    Purple may be the official Pantone color for 2018, but I sure did a lot of it this year. This one goes home on Tuesday:

    The quick and dirty:
    - Sully Guitars production guitars made in S. Korea by WMI (Same factory for Schecter, LTD, PRS SE, Ormsby GTR Series)
    - First two models will be the '71 and Stardust
    - Prototypes should be here just in time for the NAMM show

    More soon.

    Prototypes arrived, and overall, I'm pretty happy with how they came out. WMI makes solid instruments, so I wasn't too worried about that. The colors of the prototypes (with the exception of the '71 SD) aren't necessarily what the available colors will be for run 1; I simply wanted to see how certain styles of finishes looked in person. The matte finishes are pretty rad, and I'm sure that there will be a run that will feature them.

    The guitars for run 1 are the '71 Starling and the Stardust. The '71 Starling has a mahogany body and 3pc mahogany neck, ebony fretboard, slash inlays, 12-16 compound radius, stainless steel frets, luminlay side dots, Sully Spec pickups (more on that later), Hipshot locking tuners and hardtail bridge.

    The Stardusts have the same neck specs, but it's a bolt on guitar with an alder body and a 3pc maple neck. Fretboard options are ebony and maple, but they're assigned to specific colors.

    The '71 SD is based on the '71 Starling, but has the graphic. Run 1 pricing is $1099 for the Stardust, $1199 for the '71 Starling, and $1249 for the '71 SD.

    Pre-orders are expected to begin 2/1 at sullyguitars.com

    Proto photos!

    Some recent videos:

    New Sully artist Greg Marra recently got the Stardust prototype from NAMM and will be doing a playthrough video soon. For now, here's some glamour shots:



    Arnold (ArnoldPlaysGuitar) and one of the Stardust protos:



    New Sully artist Perfecto De Castro spent time with just about everything at the booth. Sorry for the iphone camera recording, but some neat stuff

    Gold hardware works well with trans green finishes, imo.

    On paper, I would say no. But can’t deny that this is a stunner through and through (even when the headstock is backwards).
