    :lol: Maybe a little in a rounded chunky way. Sort of Flintstones meets the Jetsons. They look really cool and it sounded as thick as it looked in his clip.
    I'd love to hear that in your hands Alvin. Very cool man. :dude:

    Yeah, independent luthiers nowdays gotta make their mark ,not Fender n Gibson's mark
    I imagine it's difficult to come up with designs that will sell. As the 90s and early oughts go, I just think a lotta indie designs were rehashing PRS ,if anything . The guitar buying public is quite rooted in tradition and nostalgia . It's hard to bust us out o' that .

    Ive known Mike since the late 90's . I knew he had studied some sort of engineering . I did NOT know he was a motorcycle mechanic until now .....crazy .

    Mike is a talented luthier. The hardware and pups are a real interesting design. I'd like to see under the pup covers what he's done there. You're right about the traditional builders, this guy is out of the box. I like that. Fan too of the 50s / 60s sci fi. Maybe when you get yours landed a short clip on your feed if you have the time?

    I'm digging the Jetson, wonder how it sounds thru the air conditioner.. ;)
