    Can these really be compared to B2s, 7s and 8s etc? These are not made personally by Doug. Has anyone played both to compare?

    I could be very wrong, but I doubt anyone would know the difference between a doug made or a feline guitars made B6 given how basic a guitar the B6 REALLY is.

    FWIW Feline have just fret-dressed & done some work on my B7, and I'm picking it up tomorrow. I wouldn't want anyone else do it.

    Congrats on the new guitar.


    But honestly, aesthetically-wise it doesn't really appeal to me. At least not after all these "new" luthiers who manage to offer top-notch quality guitars with more than amazing tops for a lesser price. (Think of Skervesen, BlackWater, BlacKat, Ran, ...)

    Can't really say anything about the quality since I never played one, but I can honestly say I'd jump the gun on any of the brands mentioned beforehand before looking into Blackmachine.

    Just my 2 cents though.

    Since B6s are built by Feline and not Doug he has very little to do with the process. Might try contacting Feline and see if they can help.

    I've never even heard the name Feline before.. Is that a person or a company? I had the understanding all Blackmachines were hand built by Doug? :scratch:

    There is a PM system for updating people on their builds and a Blackmachine info thread you started in Dealers. In the future please use both.

    Jon, you've made everyone speechless :lol:

    I for one am glad you are taking a more active role with these. I believe you've nailed it on the head that the "rise of the clones" was mainly in response to a demand for these guitars, but no supply.

    Great to see the supply side of the equation being addressed :D

    Gotta say, I much prefer the Blackmachine design without binding, like on these B6es- super clean and stripped down.
