    awesome look but the unsymmetric left lower wing is a bit of a turn off.

    Trust me, any Gibson SG fanboy will fucking rage if you call a Viper an SG.

    No, really, build them. Do this world a favor.

    In fact, I might build the second but use Spalted Walnut, hipshot bridge, 2 humbuckers, and be a 7.

    It's tempting actually. I've already got all the hardware lying around. Mind, I'd probably want to make it as a 7 :3

    i never understood the appeal of this inlay, or the stripper inlays that schecter offers...though with the half bullet inlays on the other frets, it kinda makes them look like boobs :scratch:

    Yeah I think inlays like that are really tasteless.

    Why you tasting them bro?

    Seriously though I agree, I had a schecter xxx a while back that was alright, but the inlays ruined it for me.

    Yeah, these are tasteless if they're serious. If it's ironic it would be different. Are these serious? I kinda think that no one would seriously put a mudflap girl inlay on a guitar without it being a joke. But then again you can never estimate the stupidity of man.

    As far as I know there are 2 sizes for Explorers. That may very well be the smaller one.

    I naturally have bad tendonitis in my left wrist (fretting hand!), so this looks like the greatest guitar ever in my opinion. Supposed to be completely ergonomic and easy on the wrist and back while sounding/playing superbly.

    Also, I know Mr. Strandberg makes these guitars on comission, but if anyone knows about how much these cost then PLEASE PLEASE message me!
