About a month away:AOK
I've got a korina Duo that should be in the paint booth this week. I was over at Saul's shop last week figuring out all the final details. I made a few really cool changes. I can't wait. I was being really patient until I saw it almost finished. Now I can't stop thinking about it!
Tell me about it!!!!!!!
Nice classic set up T-bone, looks great! I am going to go for a Korina Jr. with bound neck and headstock later this year!
Did you chamber?
Its a soild chunk o korina.
Electroflux in the bridge and a HD Z90 in the neck.
I've got one in the oven.
What are the specs on that?
I'm a few months away from placing my order (resisting the call of credit card debt) and I can't stop thinking about it!
Mine is not even in the oven yet, it's still a gleam in my eye ;-)
Solid Korina Neck & Body
Rosewoodboard 12-14 radius
Nut 1 11/16
Med Jumbo Frets
Hipshot Contour vibrato
Electroflux in the bridge and HD Z90 in the neck.
Looks like our guitars are somewhat similar. Here's some specs:
Duo Glide (chambered) w/ f hole
korina neck/body. maple top. Braz. Rosewood fingerboard
TV Jones Electroflux(bridge) and TV Jones Magnatron(neck)/ hipshot trem
No binding except for the f hole which is bound in tortoise shell.
I was considering a HD Z90 in the neck but decided on the magnatron after talking with Tom @ TV Jones. He makes such great pickups.
I replaced the humbuckers in my Duo with a set of TV Trons and couldn't be happier. ( until the new one arrives) I'm really excited to check out the electroflux.
It's great to see all the support for Saul here. I'm glad to see that he is keeping busy with orders. He's a class act and loves what he does and I think that shows in every guitar he builds.
(The only bad thing is that it just makes the wait longer.But it's worth it)
My brother has one on order.
Swamp Ash Body
Maple Neck a fretboard
HDZ90 at the Neck and some sort of Seymour Duncan HB at the bridge
Finished in Trans White.
This is his first custom, and he is pretty excited.
That looks cool. I'm glad Saul got the camera out this week.
+1 on the photo's! It definitely adds so much to the custom building experience to get these types of shots from time to time. It looks like Saul is getting into that aspect a little more which is really cool!
