    And picks :)


    That's right - the only reason I'm in The Team :D.
    Beautiful guitar, man... Sounds awesome, looks awesome. String action is simply amazing: ca. 1mm. And most important thing for me: you just reach again and again your hand for it because you want to play more! :)

    Pic of the day!

    If you read the original spec page, you'll notice that the pickups are supposed to be black. That's because it actually took less time to build the guitar than it did for the pickups to arrive!

    The camo pickups in there now belong to Jarek and he put them in there so Maciek could test everything else about the guitar. Once the black ones arrive, it will be on its way to me :D

    TBH if i was in your place i'd screw black covers and i'd take it as it is. those camo covers work really well with the top :D

    So much love for the camo covers! Maybe it looks better in person, but to me, it's too busy with that top. Sort of like wearing a striped shirt with plaid pants :D

    I want them to match the bridge and other hardware (it's also why I went for the black binding on the body) :D
