    Another shot from Joe Sanders' visit, this time with the red Fireluxe NR.

    This guitar is currently fitted with Fralin high-output humbuckers and coil splitting Bourns 500K volume and tone pots.

    It's possible this might be the coolest picture ever.

    I've known these two guys since...forever.

    This is the first time we have hung out and jammed.

    Just one of those things.

    I know some folks were losing sleep over the seeming lack of basses in my current production run.

    ;)

    Have no fear, another first.

    Satin white with matching neck and headstock face and faux binding on the body.

    I'm looking forward to the Orlando International Guitar and Music Expo this weekend.

    I'll be showing eight guitars and two basses.

    Awesome Brad! Can't wait to hear about it (and I am sure see a few pictures)! Good luck with the show!

    Thanks, it was a great show!

    I sold a 32" scale Primaluxe and got a ton of positive feedback on my new guitar builds.

    I'll post up pics soon.

    In the meantime, I'm setting up a clear Primaluxe pickguard with the new Wilson Van graphic.

    It should be a great show tonight!

    I've got some construction photos in the DSLR, but in the meantime, here are a few quick cell phone shots of the recently completed builds.

    First up, a Teeluxe VI, a Chromasonic IV, and a Comboluxe VI.

    The Llama LIVES!

    These have been in development since last August.

    My 32" scale conversion necks have been very popular, and every time I had a finished neck on hand for my own use, it sold.

    With that in mind, I decided to build a batch of ten and offer them "ready to install" with a nut and Hipshot licensed Ultralite machines.

    These are maple with rosewood fretboard, MOP face dots, and are available in 1.5" and 1.625" nut width.

    Going forward, all conversion necks will have a logo and serial number.

    This batch of 32" scale conversion necks will be offered ready-to-install and will include a nut, string tree, Hipshot Ultralite Import Clover machines in shiny chrome, and threaded steel inserts with 8-32 stainless machine screws vs. wood screws to mount the neck.

    These are maple with rosewood fretboard, MOP face dots, carbon fiber reinforcement rods, bullet truss rod adjustment, and are available in 1.5" and 1.625" nut width.

    Street price on these will be $600 plus shipping.
