So yesterday i foolishly went on a mooch on eBay and found something SHOCKING!
CUSTOM GUITAR PROJECT ,KOA on eBay, also Right-Handed, Electric, Guitar, Musical Instruments (end time 13-Oct-08 04:54:55 BST)
i creamed so hard!
i must have it! .... but its only a 6 string .... I MUST HAVE IT! love koa with a passion and something about this just screamed luv at me
hmm... but the lack of a 7th string is indeed a problem! but i like my mod jobs so i figured i could mod it to a 7string as i had a local luthier say he would be up for helping with making a new neck for it.
so then i sold my White modded Agile Septor i will miss it dearly but then, im too used to longer scale lenths now and 25.5 just dont cut it for me anymore ah well
be good to see it go to a good home.
but even after selling it i still did not have the funds to really do this!
i was an Axe down and altho a lil richer i still had no idea what to get...
off to the custom order form which is still open for bussinez
never really know how long the custom shop is open for at anyone time so iv put my quote in and got my price...
this must be a mighty machine to cost that much!
and indeed it is
PRS style mahogany body
Black flamed maple top 3/4
27" 5pc maple/walnut neckthru
matching headstock finish
2 emg 707s as i wub them
1 volume and 1 tone
inlayless ebony board (going to get some dove inlays installed down the neck i think later on )
And i will prob swap the 707s out for 707TWs later as i like my coiltapping also and add 2 toggle switches
a mighty pile of win if u ask me
going to order it in the next week or so i think (gathering a lil bit more £££ first)
then its on for a 4 month wait! whcih i did for my intrepid so i know its not that bad. the last week is the longest part!
but saying that i have an interceptor pro and Intrepid to keep me entertained
.... To Be continued
Hmmm Wilkinson doesn't make a seven string trem.... Hipshot does though
Other than that niggling detail sounds pretty damn cool
