#87 Super-C

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Wow.  What an awesome weekend.  I flew out to pick up my second Super-C 2 and had an absolute blast!

Arriving at Philadelphia I was full-on interrogated in security as they couldn’t understand why I’d be in a few States in a few days for a guitar.  They actually Googled “Shishkov Guitars” at one point when two of them were chatting to me at the same time.  This sort of stuff happens to me.  When I bought MC2’s Double Virt I had an issue with drug sniffer dogs circling the case at JFK on the way back...

On arriving at House Shishkov I had a quick nosey at the Hamers and Shishkov’s and clocked my case sitting at the side.  After what seemed like forever Mike layed it down in front of me and undid the latches.  Woh...  I know we all get that with Shishkov’s.  If the pictures flaw you multiply that feeling by a large number when you play one.

Plug it in and you are instantly inspired courtesy of the flawless construction and materials.  Seriously this is knock-out good.

Trish and Mike are not only running an exceptional guitar business but are also some of the nicest human beings you could hope to meet.  It’s the icing on the cake.

The next day I had two connections to go and see Diablo in Phily before returning home.  Mike very kindly offered to drive me there and what followed was a very cool mini road trip.  Jim got to meet Mike, see his collection and we all went out to dinner.  What an awesome weekend.

Pictures to follow...

The guitar is Black Limba bodied - bound, quilt top, W/B/W bound ebony board/headstock face, black pearl and abalone inlays, wenge neck, satin chrome Schaller hardware, Bartolini ACE s/c, Gravelin h/b, pull coil split volume pot, blower switch, Purple/Pink flip/flop burst finish.

Can't wait to see the "FINISHED!!" pics...maybe even get a demo video?

 

I'm about due for a road trip to see Mike...scanning for concerts or other fun stuff around, since hockey season is coming to a close.  Mike & Trish are THE BEST.

I can’t post pictures.  I keep getting a message saying “ask for assistance”

I'm having similar issues - will reach out to Ted, as I'm not sure what's hanging these up.

 In the meantime...digging out the ol' Photobucket:

(one does ones best ;))

 

(actually, this could net me a load of HFC kudos like points ratings  - not so altruistic now, eh?!)

It’s hard to photograph as the colour changes between pink and purple in the quilt.  

Team Shishkov spent quite some time on this colour and they nailed it.

The inside lining of the case is spectacular too.  

I liked Calis, but this is taking what Hamer did and ratcheting it up many many notches.

Congratulations to all involved.

I completely agree.  The case was a nice surprise.

From the moment the name “Super-C” was mentioned it could only mean one thing.

Oh and a very special thank you to Bennyboy-UK who arranged for one of the Worlds premiere engravers to knock together a Dragon TRC for this build.  Outstanding!

After viewing one of Mike’s prototypes I resorted to busking for some Extra cash.  Sadly without amplification I got bugger all...

It was great having you over @DBraz, it was a blast working on this one with you and you’re  welcome anytime!   The road trip was icing on the cake - it’s always nice to meet another HFCer and see some very cool guitars.   Also, thanks @Bennyboy-UK for arranging the very cool TRC!
