    Haven't been able to play either one very much (recently had arm surgery), but my initial impression is that the SX6 will be excellent for blues/funk and the SX8 will be great for metal. Both are super lightweight.

    Ugh, I got thisclose to pulling the trigger with Todd years ago. That 8 is godly.
    Remind me again what you schedule is like, and where you live? Like, generally, when is there no one at home, and do you have a security system, etc. No particular reason. I'm just doing a project for school, and so I want to know.

    Congrats sir. I had the first SX8 built and went thru the process of drafts with he and Aaron. Beautiful work and he's a master craftsman for sure.

    I find the headstock on the six a bit weird, but DAMN that's a sick top on the body. It's like space travel if space was wood.. Or something. Congrats!

    Todd is a personal friend of mine and I'm telling you the guy is an absolute genius, as if you didn't already know yourself! Congrats on the guitars, I'm not just jealous, I'm hankering for a tickle on those fretz. Sheesh.
