Hi Jon -- Thanks! After I shot my first email off to David with an attachment of the design, I heard back from him in no time. He told me his first impression of the design made him wonder what it would be like as a hollowbody fusion style instrument with a tailpiece and f-holes. I hadn't really thought along those lines until he mentioned that. I agreed it was an interesting idea, so he drew some mock ups and it really worked. The tailpiece is of David's design. I find it clever that it mimics the shape of the guitar. I think the tailpiece adds to the archtop vibe and will be interesting to realize the tonal qualities it will add on this instrument. I'll know in a few hours -- I'm headed out to the show soon!Originally posted by Jon Silberman
Unique, refreshing, sexy, and ergodynamic. Very nice!
What's your thinking behind the choice of tailpiece here, may I ask? Is it the archtop vibe?

Man. That is absolutely one of the most beautifully designed and crafted electric guitars i have ever seen.
Rob, would you know if David Myka would recreate this guitar as a stock model or for someone else who's interested? What would the estimated price range be?
I talked to Dave many times and he love to talk about guitars such a great person. My friend ordered one and I cant wait to see it in personvery very nice stuff BTW the Trem is all hand made toOriginally posted by styles76
Thanks!! -- After the interest it received at the Classic Guitar Show we too felt this design was too cool to keep to ourselves. The "Sungazer is the newest design in the Myka line and will be available exclusively to David's clients. The price is more than fair, but it might be best to shoot David an e-mail with specs for a quote. David@MykaGuitars.com
The goldtop theme could be duplicated or could be changed to create a whole new combination of woods and parts. A new one is currently on order now and David and I are extremely excited about seeing the endless possibilities fleshed out by other clients.
