Hi Everyone,

Just a quick post to let you all know of a really cool announcement we have to make!

It's no secret that both myself and Martin love ourselves some old school punk now and again and one of our top bands to see on a night out for many years has been The Ramonas! If you don't already know of them then be sure to check them out! They provide such a kick arse show that we couldn't help but offer our humble services!

As a result we're now proud to say we're working alongside Victoria Smith (Pee Pee Ramona) and Zoë Waugh (Rohnny Ramona) to build their new guitars for them! Over the next few months we'll be making a P-Bass replica for Victoria and a JR Mosrite replica for Zoë. Must say it's great to be working with these two musicians as they know exactly what they want and are involved in every aspect of the builds!

As you can imagine we're really excited to take on this project and we're looking forward to getting stuck in to making a couple of awesome guitars for an awesome band!

As you can expect we'll be regularly updating with progress of both builds so be sure to check back here often and as always you can following us on Facebook for all the latest news and ramblings!

Any questions or comments feel free to leave here or email us!
Best regards,
Mike & Martin

Hi everyone!

It's that time again! New model day!

So this one is not so much a brand spanking new build but more of an evolution of an one of our previous builds, The Inferno.

After a lot of feedback and a look back at a few things we decided to change certain aspects of that build to make it better reflect the kind of aesthetic we've been striving for so far.

All in all we're very pleased with what we've come up with and think it gives the Inferno a nice update and redesign. This guitar is all about big statements and big sounds (think wall of Marshall stacks big) and with a great help from Craig at Axesrus® who supplied us with a couple of custom order pickups to make it happen! More info on these and the full specs near the bottom of the post!

3 Piece Maple & Sapele

Bolt on joint

24 Stainless Steel Frets (Jumbo)

 Axesrus® Black Nickel Aluminium Locking Tuners
Black Nickel Tune-O-Matic Roller Bridge
String Through Body
Black Nickel Knobs
Graphtech® Black TUSQ® Nut
2 way Truss Rod

Axesrus® "Prototype Wraith" (Bridge) 
Axesrus® "SC Laudanum" (Middle) 
Axesrus® "Hot Iron" (Neck) 
5 Way CRL Lever Switch
2x 500k CTS Pots
Switchcraft® Mono Output Jack

Black Binding 
Cellulose Sealer (Body) 
Nitrocellulose (Headstock)

Here is a quick overview on the two custom pups we put in this build!

This is the prototype to what later became the Wraith Humbucker. This little beasty puts out 15k resistance with some oversized ceramic magnets!

Suffice to say this really packs a punch and gives the Inferno V2 the massive arena sound we were looking for!

The 2nd pickup we ordered was a single coil version of their "Laudanum" humbucker. We Loved the sound of the Laudanum but wanted one scaled down into a single coil to fit in the middle position for the Inferno V2. Here is the result!

Hope you enjoyed seeing this new build! Any questions or comments please leave here or drop us an email! Also be sure to follow us on Facebook for all the latest news and ramblings!

Mike & Martin
