    For some reason I thought Jaden Rose wasn't making guitars. I love those RGA's. What model is that? Just a full custom or something?

    He moved home/shop and had a bunch of down time. I don't think he really got back to building after that. This was a couple years ago now.

    It was exactly this. He's moved house a couple of times, and real life got in the way, but he's started building again over the last few months.

    I had an original series (his RGA style tguitar) wenge top/neck from him a few years ago on loan and it was AMAZING. I never really understood why his guitars didn't take off in the same way that Blackmachine did, but I guess they had a slightly different aesthetic and ethos behind them.

    I can't wait to see if Jaden gets back into the game properly.

    He's was really popular around here and Jemsite when he was building Ibanez "style" stuff.

    Unfortunately it was shortly after he started doing more of his own thing that troubles hit apparently.

    Yeah, it's ironic - I think Jaden basically moved to give him more space (both physical and headspace) to concentrate on doing his own thing, but the initial location proved difficult in terms of getting the workshop sorted fully, getting the IT provisions in place to run the business side of things.

    Hopefully his new location will be better for him and he can get building on the terms that suit him.

    Do we know if things "blew up" or would he still be welcomed back with open arms?

    I would buy one of Jaden's Rga's for sure. It basically exactly what I'm looking for which is a backup to my main custom Rga guitar. Nobody else is doing it and I've been waiting for years for someone to do it. I made an enquiry probably around the time he moved (I wanna say he was in California or something at the time),but I never got a reply. I really hope he gets back into it. I'd commision a build.

    The only black mark I can remember is he was defending a couple of builders who ran off with folks' money pretty hard online, most notably Siggery.

    I don't believe he actually left anyone high and dry, but I won't claim to know everything.

    Pearl/abalone disappearing pyramids are still some of the best inlays on any electric guitar.


    Ever.

    I can take some next time around, for sure.

    By the way, anybody else notice that when you upload a pic to your avatar it turns blurry and gets cropped/shrinks? I tried to use a couple good pics I took but it did not work out too well...lol.

    Mods, anyway the Avatars could be a little bit better? They’re tiny and resolution is pretty bad even when the picture you’re uploading isn’t.
