Anyone here know anything about them? Info and reviews thus far has been scarce, but I've been looking at getting a custom job done and I'm looking at these guys and Carvin. Specifally, the VXtreme and Blackhawk models.

Anyone on UG know anything?

I've heard great things about carvin of course, but not to much about US Masters. They seem pretty legit, and i recall having a look around there site once in the past so that means someone had probably told me about them. You should email them and ask them about the guitars and there business in general.

US Masters are awesome guitars, Carlino Guitars right down the street from me carries them. I love to drop by and play them. I am really surprised I haven't bought one for myself but I have my heart set on an actual Carlino.

The sound/tone, playability and quality is top notch if you can find a shop that carries them try them out you will not be disappointed.

They look like they have some legit guitars. Carvin is always a great choice though.

i personally love the US masters company.

i bought an amp from them, and signed up for their deals list.

i'm really gassing for a sportster skinny.
i know they seem expensive, but they have monthly
deals for different models for around a third off, if you're will to take from stock.
just get on the list.


my amp, which has been quality so far.


i really want a new acoustic. but if i buy an electric first. it'll be a usm.

I just pickup my second U.S. Masters Vector model and I also own 5 Carvin DC series guitars.

I can tell you this, you won't be disappointed with either brand.

Both are high quality, workmanship and materials wise.
A few notes:

US masters neck on the Vectors have an asymmetrical shape, very comfortable

Great stock pickups, birdseye maple necks, THICK slab fretboards, multiple radius conical fretboards, cool neck joint

Carvin's neck joint is TOTAL access, pickups are ok, flawless woodwork and finishing, countless options, stainless steel frets

Here's one of my Vectors:

I was mostly looking at the VXtreme from US Masters and the SH550 and the CS4 from Carvin. I don't know about an asymetrical neck shape, but it's good to hear from a satisfied customer that my money won't go to waste.

jj1565, how is that amp? I looked at their site for the guitars, but after perusing the site that amp caught my eye too.
#9
honestly, i love the amp. it's somewhere between a laney and an orange.

it's hand wired, runs quiet, takes pedals well (fx loop) and has really nice tone loud and attenuated low.

i just almost never mention it in here because it's not a typical "hardcore" amp.

i wish you could find one to try out. but like the guitars, they arent around.
they did add clips on their site.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Wow, I love the Hornet, the only problem is the headstock is a little dopey and reminds me of a penis slightly.
