Yeah, swamp ash with maple neck.
Nah, theres a T-shirt underneath it. Can't see it from this angle though.
I didn't allow it to scrape the surface though, obviously
Could we get some more detail about the guitar other than 'This guitar is so good to play', please?
Nice one man-whats the wood combo?
Nice! I'm hoping to have the first ever lefty B6 in my hands shortly
So you are that guy! Lucky bastard. I wish I was stricken with some similar ailment that allowed me to get a B6 through make a wish foundation...
So much jealous hate right now... Screw you guys... And congrats
Congrats, looks awesome, always been a fan of the B6.
I realize everyone apparently jizzes at Blackmachines, but how many of you have actually played one?
I haven't but every picture of one screams perfection. HNGD!
congratulations! Love a good B6, also love the neck, reminds me of home! (ibanez wizard 5pc's)
I have never played one, nor have I even seen one. I am very curious to try one out because the reputation seems to be sublime.
I met Doug back in about 2003 at a trade show in London - got to play quite a few Blackmachines. They are stunning. We spent quite a while chatting about the wood and pickup choices and how you make a guitar that thin that sounds so huge.
Trust me - the hype is for real.
I was THIS close to buying one but ended up getting my Les Paul Custom instead. Still not sure if it was the right choice - but I do love my LP!
Good to know, how many are typically produced a year?
Depends on the year - recently, none
I think he's doing a few this year - not many. Check the FB!
Last guitars he produced were the FF8 and B7 which sold around this time last year. He's been pretty quiet this year.
Mind sharing an in-depth review on fretwork and quality? Anything that can be a con?
I'm going to do some videos in the next few weeks playing it, but honestly I can't fault the guitar. I've owned a couple custom guitars and when you get past the internet hype from 16 year kids who have never tried the guitar, you can usually find at least several faults. I think that people don't like to discuss the cons of these guitars, because then they will have less value, and they won't be able to sell them used for as much $$$.
I've also heard that from some of Dougs earlier builds, there have been a few minor details here and there, but I can't fault this guitar. It's a really consistant b6, it sounds great, feels great, and looks great.
Welcome to the club!
Really other than price and availability there are no cons to Blackmachines. By all accounts they are superb instruments with amazing attention to detail.
