Humbuckers, installed and wired correctly, dont need sheilding.
EMG's, DEFINATELY dont need sheilding.

Recorded by Graham Greene. He likes to record stuff that is totally opposite to the "theme" of the guitar he is playing, just to stuff with peoples heads

THE ART OF WAR - sample


As for the average cost, its about $3300 aussie dollars ($2500 US?) i think.... but they generally have a floyd rose so that bumps the price up a bit. I think this camo one is about $3100 aussie, without the middle pickup, including an alloy flight case. Its hard to say, because sometimes there is some small option, which can add a heap to the price (like optic fibre inlays). Id really rather not discuss prices on the forum.... i dont think its right.

^yeah i was gonna ask that...

They look awesome, do you also make left-handed versions?
Quote by idontloveyou
oh my.
you poor soul.
i'll go and slit my wrists for you so you dont have to.

Left hand, right hand, baritone, standard scales, bolt-on, set neck, through neck, solid bodies, semi hollow, guitar 6/7/8/10/12 string, bass 4/5/6/7/8/10/12 string, jazz/metal/whatever styles, bla bla bla...

If it interests me, i take on the job. That could mean its an "art" guitar, or "themed", or maybe its an unusual shape, a challenging design, a 'new take on an old idea', etc etc etc. Doesnt really matter what it is, just has to give me a woody when i think about it, ya know what i mean? Im just as much as a guitar geek as all you guys, but i decided i dont wanna be caught out making the same old boring stuff all the other 'custom luthiers' seem to make... you know, strat clones, tele clones, etc. Not to say i dont, or wont make a stratish type guitar, but its got to grab me as a cool concept first.

So, err, yeah, lefties are welcome in my shop

Beautiful, man!

EDIT: is this the specific guitar you made for Graham Greene, or are there multiple WOMD SSs?
I will show you something different from either
Your shadow in the morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you
I will show you fear in a handful of dust
