    Hi, Kaff, the neck profile i copied from Mayones site as I've played the duvell 7 and i really like the neck profile of it.. not too thick not too thin, and the carved neck well... i dont wanna say names but i've played that headless guitar :D and i happen to like the neck, so i just kinda combined it both, since it was very ergonomically good but i like the the profile of the mayones neck so i just asked for it to be carved..

    all of these specification is based on what i wanted.. its just combined ideas i got from playing numerous guitars that i like..

    and the guitar is very good for money... im getting this custom for around £1500.. £1450 for the guitar / £50 for custom neck

    its gonna be pretty nice! :D


    as well specification changed..

    Now its getting Wenge / Padauk 5-ply neck.. instead of african mahogany for more stability :D

    more awesomeness and exoticness! :D



    edit:
    btw you can as well design your own body (but not too extreme) and i think he charge extra for that, you can always check the website and ask for a quote..
    there are already designs in the website, but if you want your own design, he can try and do it for you for extra charge.

    its worth checking out really and great value for money too

    Looking tidy!

    Often thought about getting a quote off Woodstock for a nice neck (being in the uk etc) as I'm too much of a muppet to make one yet :p

    Staying tuned, just my cup o tea :shred: :cuppa:

    Looks really nice. Whats the plan for the holes in the top? Are you keeping them that way and staining the wood under them?

    Thanks! its gonna get stained soon by the luthier according to the colors in the picture

    The holes will be filled with epoxy in top, the bottom part may just stay natural

    It will somehow look like this
