0101 Delivered!


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

Though I am not the owner, 0101 was delivered today. It is a single cut, semi-hollow 1 f-holedbody. Sitka spruce sea foam painted top, hog sides and back that are beautiful, hog neck with braz board. Pickup is a triplebucker with a Gravelin single and a Gravelin series 2 Slammer repro. Custom sustainblock bridge. The single sounds very Tele-like and the tone knob has a wide useable range. Mike Shishkov delivered it personally. 

@cmatthesWill post pics.

Another gorgeous and rocking Shishkov in Fender scale.

Beautiful guitar , the inlays, the What is the story on that Sustain Block Bridge? saddles look like the org. but the base looks custom.

I'm not sure if Mike had a post about that or not, but it's an original design that he crafted.  It has 6 individual, adjustable "fingers" that attach to a machined plate.  The Sustainblock-style saddles travel on those for additional intonation/tweaking.  I got to check out his prototype a few years back, and it's a cool concept.

How the hell can Shishkov Guitars keep getting better with each iteration? He and his customers hit it out of the park EVERY time. 

Thanks for the pics. (time for a new keyboard.😀

I don't know, but I am willing to do my part to help him keep moving in that direction. 😉

I'd want a Shishkov long scale 4-string bass just like this guitar.

He had not to my knowledge posted about this bridge yet. I think at least of few customers have had conversations with him about this bridge. 0090 was loaded with the Haynes Bridge because I didn’t want a Sustainblock but I wanted some of the benefits of it.

Mikes Bridge concept is a hybrid of the two concepts. Taking the original to another level, bringing the old forward as he has done with the guitars themselves. This guitar is the first one to be released with this bridge on it. It is visually stunning to say the least.

This is a HUGE cool factor - THE Mitch Easter weighed in on Mike’s page…

This might be my favorite so far.  Bet it fucking rocks.

According to the owner, it does indeed.

Drop Dead Gorgeous. 

+1 to all the comments! 

I saw this when it originally posted and thought really nice guitar.  Then I kept dreaming about that specific guitar. 

I had to do a double take on the bridge as well. 

This is truly "Modern Vintage". 

I call dibs...damn, that is the sexist looking guitar I have seen in a long time. 

Congrats to Mike, Trish and the new owner. 

Hamerica.
