This thing is dialed and plays and sounds awesome. Check out the video below for some quickly recorded playing examples. Cost quite a bit to build but I’m getting too many builds and projects among my completed guitars and I can only play so many of them.

This build is not cosmetically perfect as shown in the photos But the parts and quality far exceed the asking price. If you’re looking for a 1 of a kind Djent/Metal build that sounds like a pro guitar but you’re on a budget, this could be a great fit.



Some More Info On The Build

This guitar started out with a paint finish and pickup ring-mounted pickups. The entire body was hand-sanded down to bare wood which was conditioned for staining. All holes were filled in the poplar wood and a Jet Black stain was applied. The guitar was then finished with a Tru-Oil finish which is long lasting and durable. The wood has some signs of imperfections with a more raw/relic style with similar coloring to some older Ibanez Prestige. The frets were polished and dressed, the electronics overhauled, and the guitar was set up to play.


Please feel free to reach out with any questions. I have included some indoor and outdoor shots but I'm happy to send over specific photos as well.
