Hard to put this down, but here's the skinny:

  • Chambered Korina body - light and loud
  • Korina neck
  • (Insanely) Quilted maple top
  • Jazzburst finish - the finish of champions...
  • 25 1/2" scale
  • Ebony fretboard with "bullseye" inlays
  • Gravelin pups - Bridge is PAF-ish, but tapable with the slug coil overwound.  Yes, that is a black cover, not chrome. 
  • Neck pup is a beauty, possibly the best neck P90 i've had, and that says a lot
  • MojoAxe wraptail - compensated with the traditional look
  • Nickel hardware
  • Gotoh 510 tuners with ebony buttons
  • Multi-ply binding
  • Electronics is a straight VT with a twist.  Push-pull on the tone control taps the bridge *and* activates a preamp just on that coil - this keeps the volume consistent whether tapped or not, and the preamp is out of circuit when not tapped (and is never in circuit on the neck)
  • Tele cup style output jack
  • Dunlop straplocks
  • Bone nut
  • Yes - it has the Muse Tip.  Just the tip...

I'm probably forgetting a few other things. 

This beauty sounds amazing.  Pretty much exactly what i expected between Mike's work and Josh's pups.  Most guitars i play have a dead spot somewhere.  If this one has one, i can't find it.  Sustain is amazing, and the tone swings into a certain sweetness even at low volumes.  I suck at describing tone, so i'll post a video at some point.

Very comfortable - the neck joint is very nice, and the guitar is well balanced.

Anyways - some picks, then it's back to the cave...

Love the layout - simple and clean. Great pickup combo. The burst is perfect. And The Muse Tip™ is a sweet touch. 

Wow.

And here I had been trying to convince myself to be happy with what I had, and was even making a little progress - RUINED now.

What a dream guitar!  Congrats and enjoy.

Wow,

what a great set of features. And visually stunning as well.

Would it be greedy to ask for more build pics (if you have some more, that is) ?

I realize I'm being a jerk, but I can't get enough of this ,

living vicariously through all the fortunate Shishkov owners, I guess.

Play it in good health.

 

Cheers,

Tobias

E.T.A. The black humbucker cover and the knobs really tie the guitar together.

Yeah! Dude give details on the green monster too! What vibrato system?

Jazzburst is the finish of champions indeed but that greenburst is beautiful.
