    Yea, I mean, certainly I don't really need both the couch AND the chair in there, but I just thought maybe it's good to have just in case guests come over.

    Get some of those old padded Kustom amps and you won't even need furniture.

    Get some of that 50s atom punk stuff to go with it and go ahead and buy a Frank Lloyd Wright house and you're in business.

    Non sequitur quote, but dude, how've you been? Great to see you around here again.

    That guitar looks SICK, too.

    Not seeking to answer for him obviously, but he's relatively active on IG and Facebook. I've been keeping up with him in those places for years now. There's some great build content.

    Hey Rad
    What does the carbon fiber do
    Where is it?
    Is it that little triangle or is it INSIDE the truss rod shaft or something ???

    I’d like to understand why it’s there and what it does and why you insisted on it

    I googled and I can’t find anything on it

    It's laminated in the neck.

    It sounds like at the beginning, it was purely for cosmetic reasons (and there's still some with the Truss rod cover, control cavity cover plate), since it was being wrapped over a wooden body. But laminated in the neck, it would be there to provide stiffness.

    Yes, @spudmunkey got it.

    Dan uses CF in the neck reinforcement anyway, so if you get a new Oni today, that's going to be there. I'm not sure the arrangement/orientation in the neck shaft, that's something to ask Dan. Other luthiers use CF for reinforcement as well, but I think Dan has really mastered it. I feel it's like swords or something: you want the neck to be stiff, but too stiff is not good either, and there's a compromise spot that takes a lot of experimentation to nail down.

    The separate issue is CF body wrap. Dan did a few CF Onis back in the day and I always thought that was kind of the iconic Oni for me, so in putting in a new build I wanted that look. Obviously didn't work out.

    @narad

    Curious how you're feeling about it still after over a month of play time.

    Sadly I haven't gotten much play time in this month, and I got a Diezel Schmidt close to the same time, so usually wind up playing a Suhr through that. My opinion on it hasn't changed, but it's a guitar I like for more metal stuff, and the Schmidt doesn't really get into metal territory.

    Narad, you have arguably the most insane collection of guitars we’ve ever seen, I love that you just casually couldnt get around to trying what is probably the most GASed over Multiscale out!

    “Man, I got a new amp too, so I just couldn’t be bothered with playing a guitar I’ve been waiting years on and most mortal men would sacrifice a testicle or two for”

    Lol. Deadlines are deadlines man. And sadly Japan doesn't have much of a Christmas holiday to chill out with guitar in, like I'm used to.
