#52... ...and #53

Recommended Posts

Some better pics.  The top on this thing really moves.

The specs (highlighted the differences):

  • Solid Mahogany body
  • Maple neck
  • (Insanely) Quilted maple top
  • Greenburst finish
  • 25 1/2" scale
  • Ebony fretboard with "bullseye" inlays
  • Lighter headstock angle (due to the trem)
  • Gravelin pups - Bridge is a hotter version of the one in 0052, still tappable with the slug coil overwound.  Black cover.
  • Neck pup is same Gravelin P90
  • Gotoh EV510T trem in Cosmo Black - cool color
  • Gotoh 510 locking tuners in Cosmo Black with ebony buttons
  • Multi-ply binding
  • Same electronics as 0052
  • Tele cup style output jack
  • Dunlop straplocks
  • Graphtech nut
  • Yes - it has the Muse Tip.  That makes two tips...

veatch just threw down the gauntlet and dropped the mic all while riding a unicorn.


Boom went the dynamite.

#52 is probably my favorite so far,  Perfectly executed finish on a really nice top...

I keep telling myself I don't need another guitar! But after seeing all these fantastic Shishkovs, I'm beginning to lose my willpower!

This is exactly where I am. 

I have the color picked out. Working on pickup selection, etc. And I haven't even placed an order yet. 

Shishkov dreaming on such a spring day......

But wait, 0006 beckons!

0052 and 0053 are indeed unicorn-ride worthy. And the long scale with a vibrato bar is driving the SAS.

Indeed.  A reveal within a reveal.
It could not have been executed more perfectly.

He's still a dick, though.  Now, more than ever.
