    The fretboard is completely flat, like a classical guitar.

    Hehe.. so we have here a weird greyish spalted walnut top, which should get on well with the upcoming pau ferro fretboard.. a swamp ash body.. and a 3pc maple/walnut neck.

    Doh! No idea why I didn't think of that! Like how Shawn Lane had his Vigier guitars.

    Witty !

    The body looks like a cross between the RG and Horus, and plays like a Hamer Diablo. /spoiler

    So here's the body, it's smaller than it looks, probably in the same size category as the Skervesen 4AP. You can guess the forearm cut, and the all-purpose push/pull volume location. A 38mm body width (which is a bit more than regular Skervesens). The bottom is actually symmetrical.

    I will probably end up contacting skervesen myself soon (even though I don't have the money really) but is it a lot to do a custom body shape or are they pretty willing to work with you?

    The custom shape was +100€, though the design was already drawn, dunno what happens when one asks them to design it from scratch. We fought a bit over the neck joint, I can be (no, I am) a pain in the ass about that.. Besides, everything went smoothly :metal:

    Wow, this is going to be gorgeous.

    I am dying to order a Skervesen but they have yet to get back to me. How long did it take them to reply to you?

    Got it, thanks! I just feel like I'm bothering them - those poor guys must be slammed with orders after all the beautiful guitars they keep putting out. I know I'm dying to get one...

    Looking forward to seeing how yours turns out!
