    Not sure how many of you know this, but I'm a marketing director for a custom manufacturer that does all kinds of different shiznit.

    Anyhoo - there's a bro that works in our wood shop that I may be starting a VH tribute band with soon. He and his buddy that also works there build custom guitars, and I told him I'd give them a plug here.

    The name of the company is RS Guitars, and they'll have their website up soon - I'll post a link when it's ready. Dudes, their stuff is NICE. I've messed with a few of their models at work, and as soon as I can afford it, I'll be having them build one for me. Anything you want - not just their standard series. here's a couple of pics I grabbed from him today -

    I really like the original effect that the red one has. I would like to know the details on the chamber!

    Talked to Scott today (the "S" in RS Guitars) .
    I asked him about the woods used and hardware and so forth. Basically , his answer is anything goes - it's totally client-driven. Only top-notch hardware is used, and they are set up too work with just about every manufacturer you can name. The majority of the stuff they have done is alder wood, but obviously they use a lot of maple, as well as some rosewood. Again, he said whatever the client wants, they get. For good measure on the range of options they can offer - he told me they have 32 different neck configurations available as of right now.

    You'll notice the scalloped bodies on most of thoe models shown above - that's a signature thing for them on their originals - called the "sidestep" series.

    trip, they have a few models that have that semi-hollow cutout on them - I haven't played one yet, but will ask to as soon as I can.

    Cool! Thanks for the link. I occasionally have to visit Lexington on business. Next time I'm through, I'll stop by Wilcut Guitars and see what RS Guitars they have.

    Peace
