I'll say it again--for me, this is your nicest looking guitar by a mile. It's got a unity about it that's pretty much perfect. I think Ilyti said that the SCB looks almost like it was meant to be a multiscale all along... and I agree. The slant balances out the slanty shape (in the opposite direction of the top bout) of the "diagonally pulled" LP shape.

I don't know how walnut sounds with the pups you chose, but I hope it sounds as nice as it looks!

Excellent! I'd happily brandish that weapon! :applause: :applause: :applause:

Hmmm Koa yummy! Looks great and it is kinda crazy how the multi scale adapts to that body style.

Man they need to name the spay booth after you. Or at least the bathrooms.
The evil collection now has c holes and bad arse koa.
You would think they would make one you like so you would quit trying.
But seriously super nice. I first thought of Doctor turn and imagined him spitting out his coffee all over the monitor. Sure enough he was the first to congratulate you on such a sweet guitar. I hope some day he too can get a chunk like that.


All rants of an envious guy. Thar once was a guy here years ago that switched to collecting guns after he got done with Carvin. I thought he would be the customer of all time . I think you may have surpassed him. If you are married my hat is off to you and your wife. I recently made a change to my rig and my wife for the first time in over thirty years drew a line in sand. Need to buy her some jewelry i guess.

Lol! I got my chunk-- solid chunk of the lost days of flourescent koa!

I'm good with koa (which I'm more into as a tonewood). I spoke with Mike about getting one built but I wanted one full slab like my 150k for a topless CS, which is the only Kiesel I'd be interested in, and they can't get one thick like that on the market (and anyhow to try and guarantee old growth, veiny vertical stripes like my 150 which is all I'd want, the prices just go haywire even if they could find the right slab.. on Option 50 terms no less!).

But that's a great looking deco top, the way Jeff cut and slanted them in at each other really helps make it look very unique and creates a great sense of drama! I think it's John's greatest looking guitar.
