    If I saw a guitar like that in a shop, I'd buy it instantly! That is really nice. You always take good photos of your stuff, too.

    Great work Dino.
    The Matt finish is a killer touch. Lotta steps in that puppy.

    Thanks guys.

    The tone is very unique.
    If I had to describe it, I'd say it was close to maple but not as bright or thin with alot more tonal quality.

    This is how Warmoth describes Padauk on their "tone-o-meter".


    The '59 Trembucker sounds really good in it.

    If you're interested, I just posted it on eBay.

    Thanks Ron.
    I was going to shine it up, but I think that would have taken away from the beauty of the wood. To me, it feels heavier than Ash or Alder, but not quite as heavy as Mahogany.

    I'm keeping the cover off the back.
    Just looks "cool" IMO.

    Hey Dino-
    Great looking guitar. Where did you get it from? Also, did you get my email? -Red43j
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!

    I built it.
    The body is from Frankenstraat.
    Took alot of elbow grease to get the finish to pop, but it looks and sounds really good.

    Got your email bro.
    Sorry, I've been really busy lately.
    Can you do me a favor and send me another pic?

    Thanks!

    Just noticed the pics ... sorry.

    Is it a bolt-on or set neck?
    Would you be sending me the whole guitar?
    Or just the body and neck to paint?

    Thanks

    Dino-
    Its a neck through. I wouldn't want the neck painted at all. I would send out the whole guitar. All I want is the body painted. Hope that helps.-Red43j

    P.S. I've never messed with EMG's, so I would like to see if it were possible for you to disassemble the guitar for painting.
