    It's kind of like the red/black stain on some of the Epiphone Gothic guitars, but much classier and sexier.

    Hey guys,
    This next week is the last real week of the OXC run. I'm working everyday on them until the last one is shipped. Keep an eye on your email in-boxes because I'll be sending invoices starting tomorrow and if all goes well we'll have several of these in the mail by the end of next week and the rest following shortly after.

    Thanks for posting the pics here too, that is a big help to me!

    Thanks Erick.

    Just a quick update on the OXC's, I dropped off one guitar today and got one more nearly setup. I just visited the doctor a few hours ago as I've got a nice little sinus/ear infection going on so this might delay everything a day or two. I can barely stand up straight at the moment which makes it hard to correctly set up guitars. Hopefully the antibiotics kick in over the next 24 hours and I'll be back rocking in the shop tomorrow morning. Either way though I'll be in the shop tomorrow double checking the finished guitars and sending out invoices if that's all I can do.

    Hi guys,
    The health is returning and I'll be back in the shop today working diligently. I'll be picking up and dropping off a guitar today from my tech later on and hopefully getting another guitar at least 80% assembled.

    Back in the shop again today. Still feeling a bit queasy and not moving as fast as I like but the balance is returning! 5 guitars to go so I should have a lot of it wrapped up this week. I'll try to get some fb pics up today.

    I dropped off another guitar with my tech today. I'll probably pick it up on Tuesday or Wednesday. I have to spend the day tomorrow figuring out some property tax stuff for the business so I'll most likely clean the shop, inventory and log in all of the business equipment and then see where I can get on the remaining OXC's. Keep an eye on fb for updates and pics!

    I recommend everyone have a peek into the "Oakland Axe Factory 2014" thread that was linked above. Some very interesting stuff going on, and I'm involved in designing parts of it! :D

    Yeah mines been wrapped up in customs, and the public holidays have delayed it quite a bit. Bit of a shame because I had all of last week off, and I'm back to work tomorrow.

    Don't feel bad, it took a solid month to get a set of BKP's once they shipped from the UK last time. I've been really impressed with the USPS Priority Mail International shipping service for a few years now.

    She arrived today. I'll get some nice pics once the clouds disappear and record a video.
