So this is a bit of a delayed NGD for me, been really busy with the band and various other summertime activities and haven't had much time to get the ol' SLR out, but how the time has come. Firstly, specs and pics! Specs: -Swamp ash body -Claro walnut top -Wenge neck with bubinga fillets -Birdseye maple fingerboard dyed transparent green (haters gonna hate) -ABM headless hardware -25.5" - 27.4" scale lengths -Bare Knuckle Juggernaut (bridge) and Abraxas (neck) -Coil splitters and Skervesen World Domination Mod Porn: Review: So I've had the guitar for a just over a couple of weeks now and its been jammed on a bunch of times, and just had it's first on stage debut this weekend. Additionally, I've been pretty much attached to this thing since I've got it so I think I have a pretty good handle on most aspects of the sound and feel for the guitar. That said, I'll likely update this in a few months when I have more to say, but for now: Sound: This guitar has a very large sound, which is a direct contrast to its short size and (very) low weight, especially when compared to my previous main guitar, my all walnut Carvin DC727. The rich, organic sound of the Bare Knuckles is accentuated nicely by the woods I've chosen, providing a level of clarity across all of the strings that I've been trying to attain with my other guitars for years. This is also thanks in part to the slightly larger than average difference in scale lengths (just under 2"). The 27.4" under the low string gives great snap and presence, and gives lots of freedom for downtuning. Playability: As soon as I took the guitar out of the box and put it in my hands, I knew this was a quality axe. The action with the stainless zero fret is unlike anything Ive seen before. Even my RGT220 prestige could not get on the same level as this. Action aside, the unglossed wenge/bubinga neck feels lightning fast in all conditions I've had it in so far, from the cool comfort of my basement to a cramped sweaty jam. No resistance from the guitar at all. I also like how the mini head-dongle-apparatus gives my hand the familiar feeling of a headstock while playing near the nut while still having the perfect balance of a headless instrument. The Build: From deposit to shredding, the guitar took 10 and a half months to build. They quoted me at 6 to 7, but as many on this forum are already aware, that number goes out the window real quick. Not an issue though, I knew that going in. Maciek was great about keeping me informed for the most part, and answered my questions promptly and courteously. The build quality itself is superb. All routes are clean, the top is silky smooth, more so than any satin finish I've seen previously. All the hardware feels solid, changing strings is a breeze. My only real qualm was that my case candy was incomplete. Missing an allan key for the nut screws and my straplock set was missing a washer. All cheap fixes tho. Anyways, that's all I've really got to say for now. Response on the initial Facebook post from Skervesen was nearly completely negative, so I'm prepared for whatever y'all have to say. The controversy only re-affirmed my love for the guitar. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
