Hey everyone!

Not so long ago we had a poll on our Facebook page on how we should orient a beautiful piece of Ziricote in our next build. You guys all voted and here are the results! This build is shredders dream..ultra thin neck and action with a pair of 16k output Axesrus® Wraiths that make it scream like a demon!

We also went all out on the neck with a 5 piece Wenge and Maple mix and a 5 piece fretboard using Ziricote, Maple and Indian Rosewood! Really looks the part and is a great partner to the Ziricote body top. Check it out and tell us what you think! Full specs at the bottom of the post!

Hi Everyone!

Well it's been a long road but the guitars for Rohnny and Pee Pee Ramona from The Ramonas are finally finished! We had a hard time getting the Ramonas logo decals to work well under the lacquer as they are a lot bigger than we've ever tried to use before but with a lot of persevering we managed it and think they look great!

If you haven't checked out the progress posts of these builds yet, go check them out to see how these axes came to be made!

Initial Announcement
Part 1 - Bodies
Part 2 - Necks
Part 3 - Fretboards
Part 4 - Finishing Touches & Special Guest
