Hi! Guess it's time to create a new thread with some more specific content. I'll be introducing each of ViK guitars model including all the specs, pictures and samples as well as all general info on purchasing or ordering a ViK guitar. Just a few words about what ViK Guitars are. Every particular guitar is fully handmade by one person (master V.Kuletski) in a small shop in Europe. All the designs are unique and created to best fit the needs of every musician. You'll see from the specs, pics and samples that ViK Guitars are equipped with the best supplies available and the craftmanship is a top-notch. These days I'm mostly involed in custom guitars crafting but soon I'm limiting the number of custom projects to mostly focus on the line of my models to be able to supply a few dealers in US and Canada with a very limited stock of ViK Guitars. I do all the work myself so I believe those will hardly be easily found anywhere else but at specific dealers'. Check www.vikguitars.com for aditional info about the shop. Check YouTube - vikguitars's Channel for some video stuff on existing models. So, let's start the introductions. All of the models are available for custom order but check this thread to get latest upfates on the guitars in stock.
