    Gibson scale and the fattest neck profile Mike was willing to carve.

    I don't think I ever made a NGD post for 0033, and I'm never one to miss a party.

    HNGD! Sweet guitar; I hope you have many long and happy years together. :aok

    I have never heard of this guy but I’m going out on a limb and say he used to work for Hamer. I see a lot of similarities between his stuff and that company’s guitars.

    Yes. Mike was a master builder at Hamer for years, one of the last few left when FMIC shelved the Hamer brand. He’s been on his own since mid 2014.
    There is a Shishkov sub-forum at www.hamerfanclub.com where you can see 70+ completed instruments and a bunch of stuff in progress. Mine is in the finish room now. Already contemplating a second order.

    This guitar reminds me of the old USA Hamers. By the way what kind of input jack is that? Ive never seen one without a hex nut on it before.

    It's a Tele-style jack.

    That makes a lot of sense that he used to work for Hamer. That was the first thing I thought of when I saw this guitar!

    Those jacks look foolproof and very high quality. How do they compare with the original Gibson Style jacks?
