    Tried to watch the video and he didn't bring anything up about it. If he did wait, he probably didn't want to seem like an ass bringing up the long wait-time.

    Every customer who placed an order has received a response. Every customer who wanted to opt out of waiting has received a full refund. Jared was one of our first paying customers and we’re really stoked with how his guitar came out.

    Hey guys. I wanted to show some of the 6 strings that are going out. We’re really happy with the quality and consistency of Pat’s work. It feels fantastic to have expectations exceed and even better to see these things go out into the wild!

    Has there been any announcement as to when 8-string models will become available for order and when a 7-string model will be produced?

    When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When the seas go dry and mountains blow in the wind like leaves.

    “Time passes on my own. Empires crumble and glaciers dissolve, stars die and oceans melt, out on the dusty planes of mother earth, hot bursts of young love gift the miracle of life; children are born, raised, stricken infirm and die of old age.”

    I think he's saying that you are more likely to fit a camel through the eye of a needle than to get your hands on one of the requested guitars.

    I rather enjoy the cat build. I'd have personally liked the cat graphic to go to the end of the guitar, the same way that I'm not a fan of the figured tops and where they cut off, but it looks nice anyway.

    Thanks. I’m going to be a bit more active here for sure. The necks are getting fitted to the bodies starting Monday and then they’re into final assembly ( pickups, hardware, set up, etc.)

    Glad you dig the “Meowrada” We work with a digital printer for the graphic stuff. Unfortunately the image can only be applied to the flat surfaces of the guitar which means all of the images will be centered like the cats are. I’m really looking forward experimenting more seriously with this design feature. I think there’s a lot of potential for cool things to happen. I’m thinking less identifiable images and more abstract textures/patterns etc.

    I mean, it's not huge biggie. If I could afford one right now, you better believe I'd get a custom graphic on it. I have vinyl "skins" on a few of my other guitars. Makes it harder to sell them when you're trying to make a quick buck to buy a whim guitar. I think it's great that it's even an option to get graphics on them... Can you get custom images, or are there only pre-selected images?

    Yo Tosin. Cool to see these getting closer to seeing the light. Not a lot of options in the space so I'm really hoping these become available but I have a question/criticism.

    Why does the 6 look so much more elegant than the 8? That angle on the upper bout of the 6 flows so well with the rest of the body while the 8 seems a bit off. It's just much more bulbous than the rest of the body.

    Also what is the final scale length on these 8s? Is it still 25.5-27? Any chance there is gonna be a strandberg scale?

    And one more, at some point way back there was a headless version, has that been scrapped or can we expect that at some point?
