Whats good fellas... I am a migrant from HC forums after the apocalypse that was 2.0. Anyways, read about everyone going to this place so I figured i'd check it out? I'm in my 20s, live in VA, I am a luthier of sorts, I custom build guitars, fix/repair stringed instruments, and frequent pawnshops looking for possible cheap-o's to donate to the local underprivelaged children music center. I play mesa boogie and laney "mapz". Here is a picture of the guitar I just finished for myself, so HNGD for me! It is not entirely finished, but its in the test phase, i still need to do the body finish and some more sanding. peruvian walnut body, pau ferro neck, carribean rosewood fretboard, duncan pickups, gotoh/wilky tremolo, the works.

thanks dude! I think i may fit in well here, just read the short list for refugees in the other post.. i agree with just about everything BUT the mark III thing (i've got a modded mark IV that made me sell both of my mark IIIs..)

oh and my internet penis as far as clips/songs/recordings/shredz... keep in mind im very 80's, my first band was an iron maiden cover band named "Spandex Storm"..

Welcome!
That guitar looks nice. Looks like you have some skills. Is that a bolt on?

Great looking guitar!

I see Ibanez influence, do you make that sort of stuff?

That's a nice fiddle, and I usually don't like superstrats.

That'd be epic with a Blackmachine style headstock.

thanks dudes, its pretty sweet axe. its pretty ibanez influenced, mostly the headstock, the body is just a point strat i drew up, and a pointy strat just looks like an RG i guess. It is bolt-on, those are the only kinds i make, anything else is just not worth the work (i'd have to retool my pathetic excuse for a shop).
