    I really like the way Chafin's look; very well-conceived and executed from what I can see. It's too bad he doesn't make any trem models.

    He'll do whatever you want. The guitars are pretty much on a per order basis, and I know one person who has a trem model coming very soon.

    Hey, isn't that a Koll headstock? I guess they will do anything.

    Seriously, that's gonna be a great guitar, I've got a friend who has one and I get a chance to play it every now and then... very cool and easy to play.
