Just finished my latest commission. This build was rejected by two major manufacturers "Custom Shops" who are famous for making this style of instrument. Specs are Mahogany body, Maple/Satine neck. Finish is a white pearl & micro flake. Scale length is 27" and the neck was widened to client specs for extra clearance at the edges. Floyd rose trem. Hipshot tuners, Seymour Duncan Sentient pickups.And of course glow in the dark side dots.

Usually on an 8-string you have a lower B and F#.

The guitar looks so clean and neat. I'm a fan of that kind of a look. Fantastic work, Brian!
