Guys, you probably don't get to see to many guitars made by Aussie luthiers, I should also point out this is not really representative of Charle's usual shape, but I thought I would show it anyway and post a few pictures of the Cilia Singlecut Prototype II. Charles specialises in very light and extremely resonant electric guitars, he works very hard to find very good wood, and it takes around ten months or so between intial order and delivery. It is worth the wait. The guitar is light (weight) Brazilian Mahogany for the neck and back, with a maple cap. The neck is really amazing, very thin but doesn't feel too thin. Great tone, very resonant and has an even frequency response from the pickups he wound himself, no volume dropout or tonal changes on any of the frets, he really has done an exceptional job. (The guitar is only a few weeks old and is opening up beautifully.) We spoke today about what he was trying to achieve with his design and he said that he loved the classic LP shape but wanted to improve the access to the higher frets, make the guitar more comfortable and get the sound that you can get on the really good LP. From my playing time, I think he has definitely achieved all those objectives. Very happy and proud to own such a beasty! So here are some pictures: He is also working on a semi-hollow for me that the body is to be made from one of piece quilt maple. The neck will be flamed maple. Still have a while to go on that one.
