    Oh yeah, good stuff coming up. I'm concentrating on the e-scale 7 and 8 strings, getting the processes involved as refined as I can. Not sure what happens after that. Thinking more conventional 6 and 7 strings, but I don't have the details worked out, there's no time frame, it all just depends on what the right direction seems to be in 12 months or more. True custom guitar making makes no business sense at all, the only viable approach I can see is to work on efficiency and accuracy with a limited set of variables.

    Dan, you're a builder after my own heart. :wub: Best wishes with the future endeavors, sounds to me like you're headed in the direction most builders should be going! I actually just posted something similar to this in another thread in this section, glad I'm not the only one who made this connection. :lol: Look forward to seeing what you put out with the production route, would love to grab another Oni from you! :D

    The world (specifically the western world) needs more Oni guitars.

    Thought to share more pictures of Dan's stellar work on the fully scalloped fretboard of my Oni.

    And if anyone is wondering, the neck pickup is a humbucker-sized single coil.

    I say, god damn! I can't think of anything I'd change on that guitar, not a single thing.

    Just got one of these incredible guitars, the best 8 I've ever played by quite a margin. I'll definitely be putting in a custom order with Dan in future. I'm totally converted.
