    Thats nice!
    I plan to send him and other great builders Info / presskit of my band when we are finished recording our album in a professional studio. We will be shopping our music to labels, so I thought:idea: why not shop around for great endorsements as well!

    Congrats! I really like his guitars!

    I put down a deposit for a Hesperian sixer. Bernie was very accommodating of a couple of little customizations that I asked for. Super excited about this epic deal!

    this is such a sick sale that i can't take part of because i have to pay off an engagement ring and save for a wedding. i must be doing it wrong.

    i'll just have to keep saving for a strictly 7 next year. i'm really jealous of you guys :(

    lol thanks. my photobucket is filled with gems.

    i'm a maryland grad, and i'm having trouble determining if a duck or a turtle is a shittier mascot. i'm gonna go with duck, but at least your football team doesnt suck.

    I wonder if I should go for the headstock with the extra little spike, it looks pretty cool.

    So excited, I want to be cyrogenically frozen until the guitar is ready to be shipped :nuts: driving me NUTS

    You mean the Diva HS? That's not a bad idea. I might have to do that as well....

    Mine will be a Hesperian Slant Top 725 with 26 1/3" scale and the Crunch Lab / Liquifire combo. I'm trying to decide between the mahogany neck vs. maple neck...

    Also, some of you are talking about going with the Diva headstock. Is it an option? I've been thinking about it as well, and was under the impression that it's too late for those kind of changes to be made?

    well i think that since bernie got way more responses then he projected, that he decided to go "what the hell" and do some orders that are more complicated. he sounds like a hell of a guy, he knows he can get 3000 a pop but he is giving all of us such a great deal. he is probablly going to make a lot of money from this as well. this is just a win win. i stayed up all night youtubing brj guitars and reading reviews and interviews with bernie. im stoked.

    I just want to give everyone the heads-up.


    I haven't asked him yet, but it is VERY likely that if you were not in the first 5 orders of each model, then you will not be getting these in February, but later. So don't start bitching if this is the case!

    Made a deposit for a Hesperian 727:)
    Flame maple top (possibly with blackburst edges, haven't decided on that yet though)
    Maple neckthru
    Mahogany wings
    Hipshot
    Bare Knuckle Painkillers w/ black cover
    26 1/3 scale
    27 frets
    no fret markers (aside from the top)

    I wasn't planning on getting another guitar for another year or so, but I couldn't pass this deal up! Guess I'm gonna have to wait a little longer to get my Axe FX Ultra... fuck it, who needs a savings account! lol
