    And the best part?He lives about 1 km from me, when I get the new axe I think the old GT-7 might go for some plastic surgery :p

    Looks pretty nice.
    Did you have to chance to play it ?
     
  4. Hmm, looks like a cross between a Godin sd body shape, and the Carvin Allen Holdsworth body model.

    Interesting.

    Nope, but I'll try and find his workshop, its about a 5 minute car ride from my house,my girlfriend even works in the area he also does general repairs and mods like defrets, integral fingerboard replacement in Ebony or Pau Rosa (I think this stands for Rosewood not sure)

    Here's a nice defret detail, I had never seen a defret leaving just enough metal to serve as a marker:
