    Steal indeed, those are some choice axes you're letting go of.

    This is a great finish, reminds me of old Fernandes BSVs (which were also sparkly).

    Fine.

    EURO550. It's got a 5 piece purpleheart/zebrano neck, ebony board, full thickness body and full thickness top (maple on sapele), hipshot trem, hipshot locking tuners.



    I'm really hoping to sell these too. It's obviously so bad with me/my work that I have to give it away.
    Dude that is a gorgeous guitar right there.

    That crowd is way more into non-traditional stuff. It also tends to be a spendy bunch, and really dig boutique stuff.

    You could probably get a good foot in the door by making a 27” six or seven string similar to that gold/purple single cut.
    I'll post some pics on that forum in a few days. I would like to see what will happen if I do. Especially for these prices, I mean... Less than 1000E for a handmade guitar, no veneer tops. I think that's a steal?

    The reason this one's priced so low is because the finish is checked/reliced and most people don't like that. If you love the inlay and the overal esthetic, but hate the finish: I can refinish this for you for +EUR200.

    This one can go too.

    Ash body, Flamed maple neck, ziricote board, HSH pickups, hipshot trem and tuners, the works. EUR500. Ex case etc etc. (same price as the one above because having binding on the fretboard kinda offsets having a maple top, in terms of cost but the labor was the same!).

    My plan for 2022 is to get rid of even more. I have 2 necks and 3 bodies and way too much hardware that needs to get matched up. So I'll have five more to do something with. I might change some things though and offer them for peanuts.

    Talking about peanuts: I have a few for sale for well...almost nothing.

    Oh gosh, even more purple and black?! I'm designing two Mexico guitars at this moment. They're the same, though, but one for her and one for me. Is the following too much to start learning guitars on?

    *Les Paul Shape
    *Top: solid cocobolo, carved, F-Holes
    *Core: Spanish Cedar, chambered
    *Back: solid ziricote with continuous backplates
    *Neck: cocobolo/ziricote/bocote laminate 17 piece neck
    *Fretboard: ziricote with maple binding
    *Headstock cap: ziricote
    *inlay: Mexico's Coat of Arms (eagle eating a snake on top of a cactus) on the headstock, Mayan calendar on 12th fret
    *3 gold humbuckers, custom wiring, tune o matic bridge

    All mexican woods, might I add.

    Orpheo, not having the time or opportunity to read the whole thread, are there any others avail?
    I don't think so But I will do something like this at a later date. I will let you all know in due time. I'm making up a few designs and I think they'll be oddly satisfying.
