Funny, I remember where I have seen this typography in the Shishkov brand but where ???? I wish you really the best but I hope the naming concept can be much simpler.....A warm good luck and I hope to be fortunate enough to ,once in my life, have a custom order...At least , I know, now , where the order will go to.

We are pleased to announce that Mike Shishkov, one of the insanely talented builders from Hamer, is officially launching Shishkov Guitars, USA. Mike started a quarter of a century ago in the Arlingto

Update from the Shishkov Shop: Been a busy week. Paperwork and more paperwork. Mahogany blanks coming out of the kiln next week. Maple tops on order. Supplier of the maple has stuff that blows my

You guys are the best! Thank you so much for your support, encouragement and requests! I am working through the overwhelming number of requests that have been submitted and will be in touch with ev

When do I get to make a promo/commercial that will make Jol and other boutique custom shops completely green with envy?

Maybe we can do a small fund raiser to get enough funds to schlep me to Conneticut?

If Mike puts Duncan pups in his guitars, I can surely get some Facebook cross promotion going with the Duncan page.

If ever there is a moment where my talents and abilities are needed... this moment is surely one of them.

** PLEASE READ THIS!! **

Keep in mind, "The Ultimate" run is for a basic run of "4-Digit" style guitars. This is not intended to be for totally tricked out instruments - the special pricing is geared around Mike's ability to produce a repeatable, basic guitar format, which is the only way that low price will work.

Just because there are options in the drop downs for custom quotes does not mean that these will be available on the limited run guitars, and DEFINITELY not at the price point indicated. The idea is to get things going and get some really cool guitars in the hands of players, but not to make every one of these a totally unique custom guitar. There will be some things (finish selection, fingerboard wood, etc.) that may be available as upcharges, but for the people looking for "ultimate multi-ply binding", scale length other than standard, Floyd Rose trems, or names inlaid in the fingerboard - that's not happening at the special run pricing!

The regular "Custom Quote" option, at Mike's higher, regular pricing, will apply for anything outside of the basic model.

For those who have asked, Sustainblocks and boomerang inlays are NOT available. Sustainblocks supplied by the purchaser could be an option, but boomerangs are a Hamer property.

That is why I left almost everything as "other" on the dropdowns. I want mine to be what Mike thinks these Ultimates should be.....cept for the lefty part. :lol:

I just put a little note in the comments that I was not married to any of the options I chose.

ETA: on another note: this would be the perfect 50th birthday present!

Geoff:

Right now, Mike is working out the custom pickup concept and basic supplier. Obviously, that will be based not only on his vision/hearing and customer inquiry, but also by whatever makes economic sense for him as a builder. I wouldn't rule anything out at this stage, but having you do a video (or videos) would definitely be a cool thing to add as a site feature!

For a brief moment I was astonished that this even had to be verbalized. Then I remembered: this is the HFC, home of the guys who could complicate a no-strings-attached quickie from Kate Upton.

Commence the "from across a smoky bar it looks like a Hamer" lawsuits.

I'd like to wish everyone involved enormous success with this venture.

This is 100% Mike!

Any involvement by others here is purely to support/launch his venture and help him continue to do what he loves to do and does so well.

I just turned 50 on Saturday so I agree. Damn where did the last 20 years go ?

Although it shouldn't need to be said, the aforementioned item is NOT an available option.

MC hit that mofo on the head! I was so panic that I just filled it in hoping to make the cut when I thought there were only twelve. I also noted in comments that any options out of line with the project just let me know.

This is exciting news. Best of luck to all parties involved.

ps - I had to google Kate Upton - but I do know what a quickie is. The there is no such thing as no-string-attached - that would be like getting a “new” 4 digit for $1680 - there is no such thing ;)

I want the first one to be a short scale bass for me! Although I don't expect it will happen I didn't figure it would hurt to ask. I'll have one once he gets ramped up. :)

Couldn't hurt to give Frank Falbo a ring at Duncan, Frank's a great guy.

Understood and already assumed as much. Had NO intentions of getting my specs to be considered as options in the Ultimate run.

It's still major-league excitement on this end. I've been walking around with a boner all morning. Or I was until I read the no boomerangs clarification.

<droop>

Who knows...maybe he'll be able to get away with "reverse check marks" or something... ;)

I was thinking "Mike Swooshes", myself. Man, I'd like to have them (and a sustain block), but I understand the parameters within which we're working, and I will definitely play ball.

Cheers to the start of something good!

Well... That is a deal breaker for me.
