    Hey guys,

    I will be shooting a documentary about Skervesen and I would like to involve some community questions :) Post your questions that you'd like to have answered or any suggestions or ideas you have. The documentary will contain the history of the company and will show the build process. Let me know what you are most interested in or what you'd like to see! Just post anything that comes to mind or could be interesting ;)

    Thanks!

    Are you just hoping they might send you one for the free advertising?

    How vital do they believe the YouTube/forum gear scene was to their success as a company?

    How did they come up with such original headstock shapes?

    Any plans for full-on production runs? (because there's no way I can afford a custom SkerveTEN, hahaha)

    Cool! Will think about this and get back to this topic later, but I would check first of all to which degree the musical taste of the Skervesen guys influenced the way the make and refine guitars.

    What tales do they have of demanding/difficult customers? Not requesting the naming of names, of course.

    I feel like we hear these stories all the time from the customer's POV but not often from that of the builder.

    What do they believe is "next" for the electric guitar technology-wise?

    They are mostly associated with Djent and not other genres of music. Is that by choice? Or do they want to sway away from that image?

    How they formed (what was before Skervesen?) and then evolved their instrument design? What were the main breakthrough points for them personally and for the business?
