    Hey guys!
    XEN has partnered up with Rusti Guitars in Italy for our European customers.

    I just wanted to drop this here and see if any of our Europe based members would be interested in a limited XEN run at 20% off our street prices.

    We have our core models to choose from:

    We could also do a run of our ACN or ACS acoustic/electrics:

    We can also do our bass versions: http://www.sevenstring.org/forum/3454250-post113.html

    Let me know if you're interested. Rusti is eager to get to building!

    Dang it! I would have been interested in a year or two when I'm more financially stable. :(

    Guess I'll wait for another European run.

    It doesn't matter where you're from. I'm just offering it this way because Rusti is in Italy. If you want in on the run by all means join in we will be scheduling more concurrent runs shortly.

    The in-progress OAF run is the OXC model that Eric designed in collaboration with Tom, and I believe that they're planning another collaborative run for sometime later this year. It's only fair that our European colleagues also get a chance at a XEN guitar without having to pay transatlantic shipping. :yesway:

    I'm going to check if I can get the money together, but if I can I'm going to get one. Loved your designs from the get go, and to own one of the first in Europe would be awesome! Rusti's work always looked great too, good choice! I know it's unlikely, but do you know when you be aiming to start / finish them?

    Need to decide between HDC, HCC and OXC too... Tough choice when all of them look so good! :yesway: Possibly leaning towards HDC at the moment, not sure though.

    Any idea on a price range and will 6-string models be availble as well?

    Looks like so far we're leaning toward headless, but we may be able to do a bit of both based on demand.

    As for time frame I'd like to give us some time to make sure everyone who wants in on it has a chance to voice their preferences. We'll give it a few weeks to be sure, but Rusti is chomping at the bit and ready.

    Of course we'll do 6 strings! ;)

    Rusti and I will be working out pricing and I'll post when we have details.

    Quick note, for anyone interested in straight frets, here are some samples:

    Alright, cool! Was just wondering if there were any rough estimates as I couldn't find any info in the main thread either. Just looking to get an idea, like "sub-2k", 2-2.5, 2.5-3. Guess I'll have to check back later :wavey:

    Wanna send me an HDC? You know... Just to try it... I promise I'll send it back! :lol:

    I love the designs, man.

    I know there's definitely a demand for instruments like this in europe, the question is whether you can get the word out and market it well enough to get them all to check it out.

    Sure man, let me see if I have one lying around :lol:
    I'm working on ways of getting the word out, but nothing works better than finished guitars in players' hands. That, and YouTube. :agreed:

    Will do. We're putting together the details for the next run with Oakland Axe Factory so you should see something posted in the next couple of weeks.
