Hmmm...  Two Shishkovs!  You need to invite someone over to play harmony parts!

I think we are having a collective deja Vu, the DC edition, the variations on the theme, with extreme execution and craftsmanship. Seriously, each one has been a joy. I don't think I am alone in thinking I know something more about each person who is getting one of these builds.

If I didn't think naming guitars was silly, I'd go with Jekyll and Hyde.

Beautiful guitars, but more than anything good on you for flying the Shishkov flag loud and proud!

I haven't named many of the guitars that have come through here, but i really like Jekyll and Hyde...

0054 - i agree with you on the variations of the theme.  Mike was a pure pleasure to work with - he was very open to using new parts and doing things to make this special.  These guitars are both pure Mike and at the same time, very much me.  He really has the magic touch.

0052 i can't say any more than simply sweet.  The tone must go to 11 on this one.  (sorry, couldn't resist...)

0053 is a frickin' monster.  Different than 0052, and frankly, both are right where i expected them.  The idea was that between these two guitars, i wanted to be able to cover about 80% of what i do.  I think Mike succeeded in that. 

I honestly thought at my age, these were going to be my last two guitars.  Now i'm not so sure.  I'm already looking at what else i can sell off to fund the next project...  :)

Thanks for the kind words Jef.  I really appreciate all of the great feedback that you guys give, it brings a lot of meaning to what I do, and I like the process of working one on one with each of you.  These 2 guitars have been in the works for a long time, much like David's Super C. Very early on, Jef approached me with some ideas and then gave me the flexibility to come up with something for him.  I liked the general concepts so much that I designed the DC Custom with Jef's CO's in mind, knowing that I'd be able to incorporate his specific ideas into his builds.  I'm looking forward to a few video clips of these in action in the near future!

A quick peek under the hood...

The battery is the key component of the cork sniffication.  The biasing of the JFET is tuned to the exact pH of the alkaline which is directly influenced by the oxidization of the expansion seals and the ionization of the connecting separator.  Of this, Rite Aid is far superior, mostly because of the green HOME logo, which makes it automatically environmentally friendly.

I have no idea what any of that means, but there are some big words in all that, so it must be true.

In a Shishkov even the wiring is masterful.  Very cool!

If he has one jazzburst and one green ball, he may want to see a doctor.

Anything but blue is manageable.
