    Those prices are ungodly low. I'd like to see one of these in the flesh. The photos don't look too bad. Maybe a new builder getting some practice in?

    Yeah, I really only scratched the surface there. It also is bolt on, looks like it has a pretty decent finish on it, metal bridge (sort of goes with the frets I suppose), probably a corian nut, and comes standard with something other than a J pup in it. This looks like competition for Squeir than Wish to me.

    All his stuff looks great for that kind of money. I've spent more on a stupid Wish Peanut.
     
  12. I just bought this one. For 200 and change it will be interesting to see what it's like. Maybe it will be worth a fortune some day :D I'm really hoping it's structurally well made, if so, I will be happy. If it's a POS, my knifemaking students will have some nice handle material next month :D :bag:

    From the looks of it, the worst you could expect is maybe a pickup change, or the neck isn't an optimal shape for you.
     
  14. At this point, not knowing anything about the maker, it's a $226 gamble. I've gambled on worse :D Maybe it will be a DS pickup candidate :)

  17. A DS will make anything sound good!! I'm thinking positive. Hopefully I'll be pleasantly suprised.
