    I've always thought the iceman shape looked incredibly gay,
    but this looks cool.

    Also, i like how the starting bid is $666. :metal:

    I don't like that, actually. The texture finish doesn't do it for me, I don't like the mirror accents, and the work on the back, particularly at the neck joint, looks a little iffy, to say nothing of the headstock.

    Eh, to each their own.

    I emailed Hembry guitars to find out out their pricelist on guitars, I noticed they said they wont be selling custom guitars over 1,000 dollars anytime soon except for carved guitars.

    I love the shape, but that finish isn't that hot.


    edit: Is that a Washburn WG587 neck!? That headstock and those inlays make it look like one..:scratch:

    No wonder it looked so familiar, and no wonder the maple edge, particularly where it intersects the last tuning peg, looks like an industrial accident at the very tip. Oh, and then there's the uber-classy permanent marker logo... :scratch:

    That neck joint just doesn't inspire confidence, between the angular cuts and the (ahem) bolts holding it to the neck.

    The more I look at that, the more uneasy I become.

    Yeah the headstock was the first thing I noticed too.

    It does look very shaky from those pictures, I wouldn't buy it.

    Looks like some dude read a couple of books and decided to build a guitar in his garage. I'll pass.

    Starting bid is $666, though. :evil:
