Personally I wouldn't want the guitar, it's a bit too cluttered for my tastes, I like them simple

But congrats on it, it's one of the best builds I've seen. It's unique, not just a slightly different Les Paul.

I was going for decorative and ornamental. Always been a fan of the Renaissance, but had to keep it within 60s context.

I won't indicate the actual cost, since I know both luthier and carver, and I plan on doing a review on the whole package (with case and strap)... therefore, they gave me a good break since they would be getting some exposure. If you were to actually pay for this full out, you're looking at approximately 3k for both guitar development and carving. Considering a Les Paul and many PRS guitars are this amount, it's not that much to have something made to your specs and one-of-a-kind uniqueness. Some may not like the looks of this guitar, but go to YouTube and do a search on Gig Goldstee in carved guitar and just see what comes up... he does incredible work, and usually you only have to give him a theme and he can run with it. His Alice in Wonderland guitar is really something. And in terms of the guitar, I have many top end models in my collection, including a Slash LP, Satriani's JS2400, etc., and the guitars made by Stephen Casper, at less than that price and to my specs, has always been superior. They're the only ones I play.

Necro as fuck.



I'm not a fan of that guitar one bit. I get the idea of it and all but...



The work the luthiers put into this thing looks nothing less than phenominal though.

O my, that, is just, awful. In all fairness though, I never did like carved guitars.

Good thing none of you own it or have to buy it. Such idiotic comments based on personal preference rather than what goes into the development of such.

Some very cool stuff, but overall a bit too much for me. I'd have liked to have seen it just carved wood with a finish, kind of like the first pic before paint, but embellished a bit with stains. To each his own though.

Hey dude, you posted the pics. In doing so you welcomed comments: both the good and the bad. I put plenty of work into my Esquire, and not everybody liked it. When I received a more negative opinion, it didn't bug me; and I damn sure didn't get a snappy attitude with the folks who didn't like it. If you dig it, that's great. But when somebody doesn't like it and they comment, just let that shit slide bro. I can appreciate the amount of work, time, and I don't want to know how much cash that went into this, but you couldn't pay me to take that thing.

Don't get all butt hurt now. How are the comments disliking it any more idiotic than the ones liking it?

I'm not hurt, which is another stupid comment. Nor do I care who likes it. A build thread is about the work involved in that build and what is being created based on that work. When a guitar is made from scratch, and I'm talking about even the neck is carved from a piece of rectangular wood, then that is what needs to be objectified and observed and not "I don't like it." Who cares what you like when it comes to appearances, since that is so darn subjective. Heck, half the negative comments comes from guys playing basic looking Strats or some other guitar, most of which likely costs $500 or less from a factory overseas.

No problem TRH... no one is paying you (see what I mean by a pointless comment that has nothing to do with the build?). I could easily say that you couldn't pay me to play what you play, but who cares?

None of the pictures are good enough to be objective about it. I wanna say that the inlays look sloppy, but I can't tell from the picture. Objectively, the carving doesn't look like hendrix. Objectively you have like 3 or 4 pictures of a finished project, I didn't get to see a chunk of wood turned into neck or a strat with a horrible carving of james hendricks face carved into it.

Either way, you don't get to choose what kind of comments you get. Most of the comments on these build threads aren't objective at all. Because, guess what?, guitar in general is pretty damn subjective.

The inlays are incredibly well done, if it helps. Very few carvings of anyone's face will look completely identical to the person in question (because there is no 'life' in a carving)... check out a few other Hendrix type guitars with his face carved into it to get my drift, or there's one with John Lennon and it looks nothing like him (to me anyway), but at least a general likeness. I provided details on the woods, pickups, etc., which also are in the review on this site, if it interests you (about 4 pages worth of writing detailing everything). And the pickups were handwound and not bought stock pickups. If people were interested in details not expressed, I could have provided them if asked. But when it comes to looks, the only person who needs to like it is the person who owns it. But I certainly know what you mean by opinions not being very objective... that requires thinking.
