    I both like and dislike the body shape at the same time. It's an odd feeling.
    Build looks very clean though.
    For some reason this guitar looks like a baritone to me. like the neck is disproportionately long vs the body. Maybe that's what I dont like about the body.... its a hair too small....
    How wide is that body?

    Hey, I appreciate your thoughts. the width of the body is about 34cm! (about 13") and circa 50cm high (20")
    It was intentionally designed as a headless guitar, but came to a headstock evantually ;) that´s why it has the cutouts on the bottom. normaly the headless tuner are located there


    but for me - and in compare to my other guitars - it doesn´t feels small.
    maybe the perspective of fotographing, maybe the slight wide angle lens!?

    It has a bit of Ibanez Halberd to it. I like it.

    What kind of bridge is that? One one picture it seems as if the individual elements are tilted to increase string heights.

    Hey, thanks for your replay :) it is a custom hardtail top loading bridge from a small german hardware designer. the saddles are simply adjustable; for intonation and height.
