    I disagree regarding the ergonomic point of view. I have two bolt-on Skervs and one neck-through. The difference is very perceptable.

    I haven't played a neck through skervesen, however my bolt on skervesen has absolutely excellent high fret access

    You've clearly never played a Duvell if you think its bolt on joint isn't ergonomic

    guitar forums are literally full of people yelling that the sky is green. meanwhile the otherwise is like i'm looking right at the sky bro.

    The argument wasn't that the duvell joint isn't ergonomic. The neckthrough joint on the raptor and the regius are just more ergonomic.

    fair enough, guess it's a matter of the value a person puts on incremental ergo upgrades then at that point.

    it should be cheaper then your regius.
    I had a 4ap for a little while. The guy I sold it too really likes it. I found the body shape a little odd. It's really comfortable in some positions and really uncomfortable in others.

    There is always a place for improvement. And try to be more polite. We are just nerds trying to help each other and share their experience/opinions.

    It's not uncomfortable by any means, but I imagine neck through is a bit more comfortable.

    4AP is my favorite shape from our offer and you're right about positions. The purpose of this model was to meet the requirements of our boss - Jarek. It was designed mostly for standing player position.
    About tonewoods - once I went too crazy with spec. of my private custom 4AP but I don't regret it at all. It was very cool experiment. I had eight different species of wood in one guitar - I would rather not recommend it to anyone.
    Now I have second, very simple spec'd 4AP 6 string - 2-piece maple neck with ebony fingerboard, 1-piece black limba body with quilted maple top and set of BKP Juggernauts. Couldn't be happier.

    I can't compare to mayones, but I have owned a raptor second hand for a few years. Got lucky and someone working about a mile from my apartment was selling one. I got to try it first. It is more than worth the price. If I had fewer guitars, I would buy another without hesitation.
