Myka does some beautiful work!
that really is quite stunning.
Beautiful instrument! How many punds of flesh did you have to part with for that?
I think Myka is one of my absolute favorite builders. The spruce double cut he built a while back is jaw dropping gorgeous.
That is a gorgeous guitar. Congrats.
David does do amazing work; I've always admired the Sungazers as being particularly beautiful and unique.
he does real nice work.
There is no excess panel for the electronics. Duh... you have to have a lot more faith then I do.
I guess this could be it ??
not mine... just recently finished and for sale.. I just like to keep up with the work he does.
Here's mine: #45 in the gallery
David's prices are listed on the website... this is a Dragonfly Custom model... fantastic build quality and a huge value in handmade instruments
David does great work, and is a good guy too. I'm still loving #70, http://mykaguitars.com/instruments/070/default.htm.
Or better eyesight
You see an excess panel under the electronics? Then you do have better eyes.
I'm sorry but what is an "excess panel?"
not quite sure what you are talking about
It's a really unnecessarily large and/or "bling-y" panel.
Myka guitars just have the most amazing woods all the time.
A Sungazer with a Stetsbar..........someday, someday.......
All I said is I see an access panel - since I do not see a piezo and I did not think Bartolini are active pickups and need a battery. That is an access panel, most probably for the electronics.
Either way, I am sure David, like Matt Artinger who built my guitar (with no access panel) will take care of any issues, if I could not do them myself. After all that is part of what you are paying for with these guitars :BEER.
Anyway, it is all good with me and nothing personal . David seems a great person who does some amazing work and asuming I had the dollars I would be honered to have one of his guitars - w/o the worry of electronics access .
