Mike told me his lead time was about 18 months when I talked to him on the phone...

...and my wife told me she'd never nag me if we got married...

Mike has a unique setup, businesswise. The level of customization is high and each model on his webpage (besides DBrazzes Super C), are just the base platform. There is no stock item to call Mike and say "give me a single cut model." No, What pickups, what kind of Bridge, Tuners, etc. Single cut arch top? Remember, it's not a pre existing company, it's still new, and it is exciting, can be time delays. Time allows for thought and experiment ultimately to get you a personal best guitar. I think I am on board!

The wait is both arduous and totally worth it. 

Y'all think it's bad now, wait till the new thing that Mike has come up with for 0091 shows up on these pages!

Doubtful its going to be as good as #0090, but we will see. ;) 

If the only complaint is the wait times are too long for impatient buyers, it is a hell of a lot better than waiting 2 years for a shitty guitar that did not hold up to the expectations of the buyer.

I routinely see people wait anywhere from a year to (a ridiculous) 4 years for a custom axe. A year and a half for a Shishkov is absolutely nothing, IMO. (Hell, it takes me that long to finish ONE guitar with 50 mistakes, much less a pile of orders that are delivered perfectly. :D )

I'm allowing myself to believe that #95's neck is in that stack.

A kid has to be able to dream, right?

The ebony top SC mine! Notice the new upper bout profile & cutaway - it's been in the planning for months (!). There's more meat in the top bout and Mike modified the cutaway to provide a clean (straight) line through the neck. This is very exciting.

That sounds amazing. Can’t wait to see the finished result.

I’m a huge fan of single cuts but there’s just something about the lines that I wish I could see in person. What you’re describing sounds absolutely perfect to me.
