    I'm sure I said....

    I'm sure I said "V" when I spoke to Mike on the phone. Nevermind, I might just order the whole alphabet 😜

    Simply stunning. I'd be lost on that neck though😂 Brilliant idea to go for a 25.5 scale. I wish I had thought of that. Then again I can't wait to see #80 finished which will probably be the best guitar I'll ever own.

    I'm under strict obligation to Trish in terms of posting images....
  4. Hi guys, just finished mixing a new album with my band "Die hektischen Flecken". It's now on bandcamp and there will be a physical release on heavyweight green vinyl (with a handprinted cover and a guitar pick) this summer. Should anyone be curious here's a link: https://diehektischenflecken.bandcamp.com/album/alles-f-r-die-katz Cheers! C.

    oh my....
  7. Definitely one hell of a beautiful guitar! Not to sidetrack here... but my question being: What's the idea behind a first fret inlay? Is this meant to be the epitome of "luxury"? At least in terms of crowns and from a historical Gibson point of view? When I spoke to Mike recently I was trying to get my head around this (for specific reasons). I had never given it much thought before to be honest.

    That was my original idea. Sadly Mike said no to opaque pink! He's a wise man...

    I can't reveal much at the moment but that much I know: 6 strings, 2 humbuckers, maple top (that I got to choose last year in April when I was visiting the Shishkov Empire) matching headstock and Mike is already on it .I've got proof (and no, it's not a lefty :-) .....Thank you Trish, for the pictures!!!
  11. The way I understand it (EU viewpoint here) is: Can't import/ export instruments with Brazilian Rosewood period! (But you may keep it, if you already have it and can provide prove of ownership before January 2017, at least that seems to be the regulation in Germany at the moment). Indian Rosewood must be accompanied by paperwork that verifies the wood used on the guitar. This accounts for international trading through customs (US/EU for example). EU trading may be less problematic. Again with the exception of Brazilian Rosewood that seems to be an absolute no-go. My information is partly based on paperwork (NRW, Germany) that I have received in regards to my guitars in early 2017.

    Some studio time with #0066 today!

    Great story even though I dare say you went with the full intention of playing the Shishkov anyway ;-) I hope we get to hear the final tracks some time. Can't wait to hear back from Mike. Apparently I'm no. 80 ....
  15. From the sound of the ad I believe it used to be mine. Sold it in Scotland (for quite a bit less mind you). I had it checked at Strung Out in Glasgow (nice people) and they thought it was the truss rod making the noise/ buzzing. I'm awaiting a Shishkov now ;-)
