    Hi Everyone

    So in my Dæmoness' build thread I promised a batch of photos of my KxK.
    Without further ado - here they are.

    Enjoy

    This one has seems to have gotten overexposed on the red (at least on my screen). Didn't look that way in the original photo :scratch:

    I got this guitar last summer but never got around to do a proper NGD for it. I'm sorry about but I hope this makes up for it ;)

    These are the specs:

    Mahogany neck
    Mahogany body
    Ziricote fretboard
    Figured bubinga top and headstock overlay
    Semi-hollow construction without f-hole
    Right handed
    20" radius fretboard
    Sperzel locking tuners
    Dunlop flush mount strap locks
    24 Dunlop 6000 frets
    Carve 2
    Reverse inline headstock
    Oiled neck and body
    Black hardware
    The pickups are hand wound by Rob and are based on the BKP Painkiller

    The photos are curtesy of the bass player in my band Piqaia

    Before I scrolled down to the specs, I just knew that fingerboard had to be ziricote. I love the way that wood bleeds between two entirely unique colourations. Beautiful guitar!

    Beautiful, I love it!
    Some very sweet pieces of wood there.
    I´m starting to look into bubinga after seeing your pics Hauschild, both this and the Dæmoness.

    Can´t wait to see more of these popping up.

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Kwampis, the scale is 25.5"-28". It ensures sweetness on the high strings while tightening up the lower strings, yet it's not too much to make it uncomfortable to play (to me at least).

    scherzo1928, well, it's a wonderful wood and the amazing piece at gilmer that went into the Dæmoness was just too beautiful to pass up ;)

    DoomJazz, it plays better than any other guitar I've tried, however, I haven't gotten my Dæmoness yet... curious to see how they compare playability wise (as well as tonally of course).

    mental note: Tell Rob I want an oil finish on my scale 7 (and possibly the 8 too)

    Yeah, the oil finish is really sweet. Very smooth and allows the guitar to feel really natural with the grain felt through the finish ;)
    I make sure to feed the back of the neck with some oil from time to time. Just like you would with the fingerboard.
