My first contact with Doug was over 5 years ago, back then the order book was closed, however, He and Jonathan contacted me in May 2013, and gave me a spot for 2013 years batch of only 20 guitars. (this is #16 last batch of 2013).
Here we go..
The first feeling i got from fiddeling some high notes on the clean channel was that it feels like silk, everything just fits perfectly together, i know i have new strings and all… but i could literally not feel any friction what so ever, the neck and and the hannes bridge contributes to that smooth feeling to, it is the most comfortable guitar i have played, ever. The BK-VHII humbucker is incredibly clear with well defined harmonics. In the middle position (split humbucker mode) it got an amazing piezo feeling, good string separation with that acoustic vibe going on.
I quickly got into heavier chugging stuff with hi-gain. You feel every note ringing trough your hands while the amp is roaring. This guitar is meant to be played hard! The sound is pretty dark with allot of attack. The maple/swamp ash combo is doing something magically with the acoustics ..then again the b6´s wood pieces are carefully selected for its tonality properties, nothing else.
This guitar is a workhorse. It's the real deal, you feel that instantly when you pick it up and plug it in. It is light and sounds HUGE, i love the simplicity and the wood selections are spot on. The B6 i tried years ago had a really rough surface, you could feel the grain, min however is smooth as a baby, and the old bridge was meeeh, (hated it..) then i saw a couple of new B2s and B6s with the new bridge setup, and i had to get one.
I´ll post some clips later on.
