Cross, you continue to keep raising your own bar. :w00t: :? :? :? :? :-* If that was lefty, I'd be asking how much you're selling it for. That is classy and has Lando Calrissian-levels of smoothness. You'll have to be careful that it doesn't attract lady guitars when you're not looking ;)

Outstanding! The colors you chose work great, especially the way you did the neck. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Here's an Interview I did with Ricki from @australianguitars
Talking about a few of my custom builds. A couple of sound demos too if you wanna hear these guitars in action!

I really enjoyed that - it's really nice to get to see your guitars in 3D rather than fixed pictures, they look pretty damn sweet on film. Kudos for being able to withstand an interview, too. They've always been a nightmare for me whenever my bands were approached by journalists :squint:

Hey man, very cool!

The last guitar - the K Master - is my favourite, but they are all great.

Thanks, yeah. I was a bit reluctant at first but it's a new experience for me. Could probably have talked for hours.
It was edited down from over 45 minutes.
Way less awkward than doing a band interview.

That was cool to watch!

It's funny because even in different areas here in the US, people have different accents and dialects, and that's easy to forget when everyone on here is just an avatar picture and posted words. I'll see something like this and remember "oh yeah, we've got people on OSG from all over the world". :D :D

That is a very good video. It was cool to see some of your guitars and hear how they sound. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

This is done!
Finally!

I got these Gold Foils from EZPZ on Ebay.
They sound really good. The neck is quite beefy. I was kind of expecting a tinny sound overall but
I can dial in enough rhythm and jangle.

The brass saddles help too. Nice sustain when played unplugged.
The wood is Paulownia. Very light. Probably too light.
