That would've been even more funny 3 years ago when I last had that Vector. ;)

Consider that your tramp stamp - it may fade, but it'll never go away. 😝

Congrats to Team Shishkov and to HHB for the assist with the connection so Mike could build the guitar for Dustin.  I

"Thanks for helping to make this happen Bill- as a small builder, it’s not always easy to make the meaningful connections, and the grassroots support is appreciated more than you guys can know." - Mike Shishkov!

People make it happen!   What a great testament to not only Mike and Team Shishkov, but the Shishkov community as a whole.

Very excited for Mike and can't wait to see his next build!

Best wishes,

Hamerica

Oh damn! That color is KILLER! Too bad the stage lights almost never bring out the best in any guitar's finish.  But DANG, that's one hell of an endorsement.

The Shishkov was on stage a lot last night.  Getting a good photo was impossible because Dustin is rarely playing along the front of the stage.  He mostly stays on a platform while Chris Caffery and Joel Hoekstra take the spotlight.  The only time Dustin gets a spotlight is when he is singing, and he does not sing while playing guitar.  For all the great lights in the show, the performers are not often in enough light for taking photos unless they are featured at the moment.

After the second show all the performers sign autographs.  Last year I got a tour book signed by everyone.  This year there was only one new person, and I was not spending another $20 to get another tour book signed.  A friend who loves TSO gave me some of her extra photos which I got signed by some of the members of the group.  They just zip everyone through quickly, and conversation is extremely brief. 

When I got to Dustin I said, "So, blue guitars sound better."  He immediately went off on how there is this guy building incredible guitars like he had discovered the greatest guitar builder of all time, but he was not looking at me while he was talking.  I told him to look at my shirt.  I had on a Shishkov shirt.  He just went, "Oh, ****!" and laughed. 

When I got to singer Robin Borneman he was asking about Shishkov guitars because of my shirt.  I had to tell him to talk to Dustin.

Very cool @Steve Haynie -   Thanks for representing at the show - fun story!   I tried to get some decent shots when Dustin was moving around on the front part of the stage when I saw them here in Hartford , but they didn’t turn out because of the lasers/lighting and other special effects.

The single cut really suits the darker colour. Great shot of it in all it’s glory too.
