News From The Bench

Recommended Posts

So, not so much on MY bench but some pretty f-ing exciting shit going down shortly!

First- a quick update on the Burrito siblings. (yeah, I named them Burrito 1 and 2. I'm weird like that)  Burrito 1 has left Shane's bench and is now in the talented hands of our own Stike and will be getting a beauteous SFG treatment.

Burrito 2  is on Shane's bench getting a few exciting additions and modifications. I've been LED to believe that the changes will be most illuminating. ;) In addition to some inlay changes, it will be getting new frets, and a better carve on the neck. Then it, too, is off to Stike for a different finish.

And speaking of Shane, (I better get a f*cking holiday card or something for supporting his ass like this- 🤣) I've commissioned him for two new builds!

One will be a slightly modified version of the balls-out, f*cking amazing Spitfire he built for me last year. This one will have a different head stock and a few additional features than the original SF and will feature a Warbird finish. If this maintains the playability of the first one, it promises to be a total incendiary stunt guitar!

The second will be a Diablo-adjusted version of the Phantom A-5 that I call the Specter. Shout out to @murkat and @cmatthes for the Phantom body to use as a template to create the Specter. And a shout out to @Stike for the kick ass paint job he is certainly going to impart to it. Suffice it to say, this will check all of the boxes I need on my axes but it will pay homage to the Phantom in both build and finish.

Stay tuned.

Fortunately, got both of those. One more so than the other.

Funny. I just created a Phantom template myself a few weeks ago! I plan on making quite a few of them!

Nah! Supposed to be looking up in envy; a multi-use emoji.

I would imagine after Shane gets this completed, he'll have templates and the finer points of it stored in that steel trap of a mind of his. Producing additional Specters should be no problem.

I mean, maybe using one of Mann’s sustain blocks and a proper non-reverse headstock... 😜

You'd better specify standard 24.7" scale, too 'cause mine is 25.5" scale.  ;)

Currently all of my guitars are 25.5”

I am aligned with your reasoning...
