Anyone who follows my page knows that "Searls Guitars" is in a massive transition. We are selling our current workshop and have bought land to build a much larger one twice the size.
There will be a bit of a setback in the way of not being able to complete builds for a while, however...
Completed my mobile practice rig, have it sitting at my office in work for when I have to stay late / do crazy over time.
EVH 5153 ->
ProTones Misha Mansoor Signature Overdrive -> Boss NS 2 -> Boss DD3 ->
Vader 2x12 (R.I.P)
