  • Guitar Of The Month - June 2019

    Well I figured I'd enter the newly finished V seeing as the 3.2 was obliterated by @mistermikev in the last round, and fairly so. I couldn't of finished the wiring for this one or the last one without his help, so couldn't have lost to a better bloke.  

    This one is called The Goblin, built for my buddy Ollie (aka The Goblin) and is now in his possession - I'll get him to film a demo video next time we're in the studio. The brief was a "flying V that's like my custom 24..." So it has PRS scale, neck carve as close to the Pattern Thin carve as I could get and with the same pickup switching, control layout as close as can be given the shape.
