    Soon. Probably even sooner for current and repeat customers. :)

    My wallet says please don't awesome, please don't be but everything I have seen you build Sully is awesome. Not sure I need to have four guitar builds going at one time :nuts:

    That happens to be mine. I still can't believe how great that neck looks.

    Same boat! Haha. I'm at three builds right now, had my ESP Custom not shown up today on their social media, I might be at four by now.

    I jumped on Sully's announcement of building one more Elita. I really wanted one and thought I missed my chance. So I guess I will have the Ghost Elita(6 of 5)

    Nice! Legitimately jealous. I got online after that had come and gone, but I'm not in a position to jump on number 4 even though an Elita would be a great one (orange metallic flake?). Hats off and I will enjoy watching your build progress, both times.

    That one has been stuck in my head since I first saw it.

    Oh man I love Sully guitars. Might have to get my Fbird from him as Jackson is not likely to produce one in my lifetime.

    I picked this color with white binding for my Elita.

    Are you just changing the shape or dropping it from the lineup, Sully?

    Shape change this summer. I'm going to shut the door on new orders for the current version pretty soon. I think you'll dig the new version, though.

    I am actually pretty excited to see what you come up with. I like when people put their own spin on things.

    Sully:

    I just want to pay you a compliment since I can't pay you to build a guitar for me. These instruments are really striking in their design and apparent quality. Moreso than the other threads I've seen in this section, I would think that you build the kind of instrument that isn't likely to be seen back on the market. I know if I could get one of those Elitas I would never, ever let it go.

    Don't get a big head because I'm just in the peanut gallery here, but from where I'm sitting, you're carving a little piece of history for yourself.

    I just watched all of his videos on YouTube. Entertaining and an awesome builder. Also very informative. I don't think I will ever learn to build a guitar, but it is enlightening to see the process that goes into it. Demystifies it a bit.

    I also loved the part about the stainless steel frets and the tools not exploding while doing it.
