Back in December I got a custom 1981 model from Mike, and the quality was impeccable. Since I'm a Strat guy at heart and Mike had this one for sale, I finally couldn't resist Since Mike is 10x the photographer I am, here's a pic from his site, and a link to more pics and the full specs: http://davanzoguitars.com/da034 This has Mike's thicker neck carve, and I definitely prefer it over his thinner one. Neither is uncomfortable, this one just feels "right". The DiMarzio True Velvet pickups are incredible- beautiful sounding from clean to mean, and the Injector in the bridge pickup is a perfect compliment. This is one of the most resonant guitars I've ever played. I just don't want to put it down once I start playing. Mike is not currently offering this model, if he was I'd probably be considering another one with a few tweaks. Here's a pic with my 1981 model: I can't recommend Mike's work highly enough. He's currently offering 2 models, and if you're looking for a custom guitar, definitely consider D'Avanzo.
