I spent close to 16 hours in the car this weekend, am sick as a dog and wiped out, but it was TOTALLY worth it. I stopped by Mike's place and was just blown away. I'll just show pics of the one that

Had a quick email exchange with Mike. No. 21 MAY have a finish that hasn't shown up yet in this thread, but I gave him the go-ahead to follow his muse. If he looks deep into the swirling wood and sees vintage natural, tobacco burst, or barbecue flat black, he should go for it. So this isn't me showing my new guitar yet, but it's pretty darned close now.

Edited to add: HOLY CRIPES, TED! WOWZA! Every one of them has been a knockout.

I havent plugged it in yet but I can say this is the best guitar I have ever owned!

The WHOLE guitar is resonates even when just hitting a single string. It almost like its alive but it really isn't which is good because that would be freaky. The ebony board feels great and notice the truss rod cover. Nice touch. I am more than happy with non bound headstock.

I didn't know if my conversation with mike about the neck profile translated but he nailed it. I wanted one similar to a vintage Hamer and I got it. I agree it may be wider like chris mentioned but it feel good.

This short post will have to do for now as I need to spend some time with this.

That black burst coupled with that quilt top is jaw dropping beautiful. Wow.

Actually, the entire body (and headstock) is different from a Hamer Standard. Good eye, Steve!

Is the upper "horn" a little different than a Standard?

I thought I was seeing that as well.

I played mine at practice on Sunday afternoon. Playing single string notes, they're ballsy as hell and sustain forever until feedback. Best way I could describe the bridge pickup on mine was "Highway to Hell". Loud and ballsy. I very much like these pickups!

My gawd, there's some beautiful instruments on these pages. I'm sorry that this body style is not my cup of tea, but there's no doubt the craftsmanship on these guitars is incredible. I can't wait to hear that Mike is offering something in a semi hollow or single cutaway design - I'll be all over that like white on rice...

Beautiful work MIKE !!

Congrats to all the lucky recipients.

Chris.....you should have had small packs of Shishkov logo'd tissues enclosed with the case candy for the first run :)

Is it with Brent? If so, the video clips should be soon to follow...

That said, a "Brent's Guitar Emporium - Shishkov Ultimate Edition" would be a welcome addition to the narrative!

ETA: it seems CMatthes beat me to the punch.

this would never happen because it would have to have a hideous headstock and be up for sale three days after purchase.

Ouch! :o

Hey all - first log-in here in months due to no longer having time to breathe much less look at guitar porn or chat with you mooks, but I had to get a peek at some new guitar Ted got in the mail recently. :lol:

I think he done good. REAL good! As have all of you who managed to jump on what has to be a somewhat historic and completely awesome offering that clearly has a significant amount of genuine magic surrounding it. Look at those works of art! I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a touch green right now.

I can't wait to play that damn thing LOUD this weekend............. :D Looking forward to seeing more of these as they find their new homes and get played.

Hope all you HFC'ers are well and well-tended. I do miss this place and hope things chill a bit soon so I can get caught up. Peace!

Ultimate beach / guitar picture there^^. Watch the damn sand.

This is a great story in general..happy for all you new owners and happy for Mr Shiskov.

Any word on other possible body styles to come? Maybe I can extract myself from the low rent, but very satisfying CL rut I've been in.

Mike's getting this run locked down and out the door first, but I'm sure we'll be seeing some cool new stuff later on this year!

Until then...
