New Acoustic Guitar Day – Cort AS E4

Look what Santa brought to me this year 🙂 It’s a Cort AS E4 dreadnought guitar, my very first acoustic. It’s all-solid construction with spurce top, mahogany back and sides and mahogany neck. It seems very well built. Attention to detail is high, 8-piece binding around the body, maple binding on the neck. Most importantly, it sounds very clear and balanced. All I need to do is learn to play it 🙂 More detailed review will come, stay tuned…


New Custom Guitar

Wanted to share a couple of pics of the new build my father did for a customer. It’s a Strat/Charvel inspired guitar that features:

  • Chambered mahogany body with maple cap
  • 5 piece flame maple neck with ebony fingerboard, thin C/U profile.
  • Seymour Duncan JB and Quarter Pound Flat
  • Schaller roller bridge, fully adjustable
  • Single volume control
  • Grover tuners

New parts arrived!

Got my parts from customs (bastards!) to kick off a new build – AX84 4-4-0 amp, a 2w version of famous Trainwreck Express. Stay tuned.
