That's an interesting guitar, would like to test it definitely. Too bad it's limited production, but this ensures hi quality smile.gif

That headstock wood looks pretty cheap - especially when matched with the body wood.

Yeah totally.

They really screwed the guitar with that headstock haha. But I wonder why the angles on the lower strings like that.

I agree, for a guitar that old and "extraordinary", they could really have made a better looking headstock... Doesen't those things affect sustain?

The body was pretty spectacular though ^^

I would only pay that price for a guitar if it cooks, washes my clothes and cleans my house!!. Hahaha
Now serious, it's quite ugly, but I'm sure it has an amazing sound.
