I think you're getting him confused with Yogurt...the King of Moichandyzink!

I don’t think the soon to be owner of this beauty is on the HFC, and it’s too cool looking not to share -it’s an amazing chunk of maple and man, the flame really popped  on it.  I can’t wait to get a couple of clear coats on and get it buffed -it’s gonna be one killer looking axe 😎

It’s a great one for sure.  The body looks incredibly 3D from the pictures. The owner (to be) Ed isn’t on the HFC.  He has a very tasty collection of guitars and an interesting background in music.  When Ed spotted my Super-C he got in touch as he just had to have one.  

I know he’s really keen to get his hands on his Super-C and I can see why!

Why did we not see many one piece bodies or tops on Hamer guitars?  This makes at least two Shishkovs with one piece tops/bodies.

This one really turned out to be one bad ass guitar! Finding premium maple blocks big enough to do a one piece solid body is definitely challenging though. I know a lot of you have already seen these, but for those that haven’t, here’s a few of the pics that we posted.

As others have probably said, it’s real hard to find a tree wide enogh to produce a one-piece guitar body.

The tree log has to be considerably wider the the wood blank that gets carved into a guitar body.

I’m pretty sure that all the Standards were one piece bodies btw.

As time goes on, it gets harder and harder to find big enough trees to make one piece bodies.
