    Beautiful. Really. More art than guitar.

    It'd never see a stage with me, but how does it sound?

    The headstock is unique looking-I like it. The body reminds me a lot of a BC Rich Mockingbird!

    How do you find that Schaller bridge?
    I'm considering it for a parts guitar.

    Those are really great looking guitars. What is the price range for them? I see there weren't a lot made and they are now out of business.

    Yes Bro, it's been hanging around for quite a while. Tried it years ago as well but couldn't bring myself to buy it. Anyway, now its "shop-worn" with some dings and scratches and offered to me below so called 'cost'. I've decided to pull the trigger and give it a shot. And you know what ? I love it to bits. Very comfortable and sings great with new strings through my tubemeister:hiP.
    I'm just glad that you didnt buy it back then :p

    Have a blessed Christmas !:beer

    Its beautiful indeed. The body is shaped to wrap around to the back sort of like the VOX virage and the 'dorsal' fin fits comfortably below the picking arm.
    Tried this with the H&K Tubemeister and it sounded great both clean and dirty. The single coils bites like it should (a shark) and the HB is truly fierce :cool:
    Sounds a bit similar to my Ibanez AT100.

    When playing sitted, the curve below the single coils fits nicely on my right tigh and my picking arm rest comfortably on the top fin.
    I am not a big guy, so this works for me. Can't say the same for bigger players.:huh
