    That color is absolutely perfect for that burl, man. :yum:

    Being that I am from the U.S., I have never heard of this guy. However, that looks amazing.

    Yeah I think it's going to look fantastic. I think a couple of people in the US have one of his guitars but with shipping from Australia it probably works out expensive. He's got a good reputation here as one of the top builders.

    Just figured it up, At $5000 AUD, it would be in the upper range of 4 grand USD before shipping/etc..

    Not terribly out of my price range even after shipping. But I am fixated on snagging a couple of Mayones Regius 7's,
    So, I will be pretty much broke as far as gear funds go for a couple years. :lol:

    The CGA7's start at $3500 I think, I just went all out managed to talk him into letting me have some private stock rosewood, also extra routing required with the Floyd etc.

    Fair enough though the recent Regius photos I've seen look really nice :)

    dude there are some wicked cuts of wood in this thread, and they seem to be turning into some sort of guitar, too cool.. that neck.. the cross grain is so nice looking... and the top of this thing reminds me of birds eye on acid.

    very very nice, its also cool to see the other builds this guy is working on,.. is it all one builder?

    He is indeed. He has a couple of guys working for him but he is the luthier and has 15 years experience running his company.

    Hoping he'll scrape that carbon paint off the top before assembly commences... Otherwise... :metal:
