    So which should it be?
    Nimbus
    Arpeggio
    Draken

    Go to www.hguitars.com to see the styles. I got him started on the neck but I haven't decided on the body. I have decided on everything else..I need some help.

    Everyone seems to love the draken..it is quite the unique shape. I had the pleasure of getting anice closeup of one he is currently building a couple days ago. It was very sweet.

    Another vote for Draken. I have a Ceres and an Arpeggio on the way. But if I were to(make that WHEN I)order new, it will be a Draken.

    Peace,

    My vote is Arpeggio, then Nimbus. I like the Draken the least of the three.

    Yeah see I know a lot of people like the Draken, and I do as well, but I lean towards the arpeggio. Next time i visit the shop I am going to see if he has any of these in the process, just to see how they look in person.

    Thanks guys

    To me, Arpeggio looks like a pregnant Jazz...I voted for Draken although I find Fusion more attractive. And yeah, most of them remind me of Zons.
     
  17. Dan, I voted Draken, but you knew I'd say that didn't ya?:D ;)
     
  18. I like the Draken the best out of all of them. I think it has a cool and unique and aggressive look. if you wanted something more layed back and sleeker looking I like the Fusion.
     
  19. I voted for nimbus but the one I prefer is not on your list.
