    Absolutely mate its called the Archangel and comes in either a hard-tail or tremolo version. The hard tail is fitted with ABM single saddles and the Tremolo is fitted with an Official Floyd Rose Pro 7.

    Damn you for posting the archangel - I was about to make the "refer to site name" joke. :lol:

    Awesome work. The 7 string head is epic


    I often see 2 carbon bars + a truss rod. You have certainly a lot more experience than me on the subject. I just had on my side for 5 or 6 years a Vigier guitar.

    So here's my question (kinda naive btw): is a truss rod still 100% active between 2 extremely rigid reinforcing parts?

    I was wondering, how long does it take you to finish a guitar? Not that I can afford it right now, but I'll keep it in mind for the future ;)

    Thanks to everyone for their awesome comments.

    Firstly yes, a double action truss rod is perfectly active between two carbon fibre support rods, the Rods equalise any force and stop the neck itself from warping or twisting.

    Secondly, my turnaround at the moment is roughly 8-12 weeks depending on model/finish etc.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Oh look another thread that is a massive threat to my bank account :squint:

    Your guitars are gorgeous, and I'm in love with the semi-hollow on your website. It looks insane. That 7 up there is sick as well, headstock reminds me of a BRJ, which I've always dug.

    Sorry man! And cheers too. Yeah I'm a big fan of Bernie's gear. There's a bit of Maverick and Blackmachine thrown in there too I reckon.

    Why does the UK get all the insanely talent, reputable luthiers? I feel like the US just up and lost all the big names it had, now we see stuff like Daemoness, Blackmachine, Sabre, Vik, and so forth over in EU/UK and it's like "Man, why you gotta be like that"

    Europe is larger than the USA, that could be part of the reason :p

    The builders who get tons of hype on here aren't a representation of all the builders out there. :lol:

    To be fair there's a lot of awesomeness and a lot of utter crap on both sides of the water. :D

    No need for apologies, regardless of the state of my account your guitars are still very nice to look at :yesway:.

    I see the influences and you pull them together well, is that the only Archangel you've got in the works now? Or are there others floating around?
