    Well... very soon I'll be in possession of a Red Layer Guitars Juggernaut 8 strings.
    I actually win it thanks to a giveaway he did via a crowdfunding to get to NAMM. So I end up with a boutique guitar for the steep price of... 50€. I'm not the best guitar player in the world but I sure am the luckiest one.

    Red Layer guitars is own by a single man named Jort Heijen from the Netherlands, one of the most creative (in my opinion) luthier in the game. Check his Instagram for more guitar porn!

    Here are the specs:
    Specs

    -Black limba body
    -Wenge layer
    -Figured walnut top
    -27.7"-29.47" multiscale (that thing is HUGE)
    -One-of-a-kind ziricote/birdseye maple fretboard
    -24 Stainless steel frets
    -5-ply wenge/flamed maple neck, custom C-shape
    -Luminlay sidedots
    -Black Hipshot Griplock tuners
    -Black Hipshot 21° slanted bridge
    -Lundgren slanted M8 pickup
    -1 volume
    -Matte finish
    -Comes in Hiscox case

    And the pictures at the non finished stage:

    d7a76248f1cc49b384c179201be66cf9_large.jpg

    The inlay work is (as always with Jort) absolutely insane just in picture and I can't imagine how it can render IRL.

    I'll post about how it'll play and sound when I get her!

    You're going to regret telling everyone how much you paid for this.

    I'm usually fairly strict about not paying more than 2/3 of the original price for second hand gear, but in your case I'm willing to bump up to 3/4, plz keep me in mind.

    If it plays half as nice as it looks you've got one hell of a guitar coming your way.

    "Best guitar I've ever owned! It plays itself! Never left the smoke free studio! Mint condition! (except for the three scratches on the back and a chip in the finish on the tip of the headstock, but, like, every guitar has those). Just looking to thin the herd/fund a new custom build."
