I'm Back. Watch this space. Gearing up at the moment.
I have big plans, as soon as the first necks and new body shapes
are made I will post some news up. Until this time nothing is available to purchase or order. After making the new items I will ONLY be making custom items to order.
I will have a shop for ordering necks, bodies, hardware, fingerboards inlays and so on....that is also coming soon.
I will post on Facebook, see the new link above, if nothing is on the FB page then you found me REAL early.

I am super excited to be back - Z.

First an Apology to all who emailed me whilst I was away on holiday as you may see from my October news half way through the month I am a little busy. I am being asked for swirls from O.O.T swirled I do have them now but I am having great difficulties in photographing them. I am in the process of getting a better camera to try to capture them correctly, so please be patient with me. MORE
swirl guitars out of this swirled

September 2012
Swirls are on the way. Here is a quick picture of some of the mine. They are still at Out Of this swirled but will arrive in the next few weeks. They will be up for sale in the next few weeks, 2 have been added already to the for sale section (I am having great difficulties in representing them correctly as they are extremely hard to photograph!)
I am still very hard at work both here and at my full time job, please pop back often for the latest developments.
Lefties I did hear you, all of you.
A word re the swirls. Alan has said that the swirls he has done for my might well be his last EVER.

July 2012
You may have already noticed I have made the pictures bigger on the site so it's easier to see items and their quality.
All the old pictures will stay the same but any new bodies will be posted up in the new bigger format.

Swirled bodies!!
As some of you may know? (if not SEE HERE) I started making replacement guitar bodies expressly for Alan from Out Of This Swirled a few years ago. Around 6 months ago Alan made the decision to close his company down and during this time he and I have been talking about him coming to work with me as a painter. I can now finally say publicly that Alan will be painting some guitar bodies for us from time to time in the future.

I also have some of his finest swirls from the past year+ (IMO) and they will be put up for sale in the future. Some of you may have seen some of them ever so briefly in his for sale section. Others have never been see before as I put my name on them soon as I saw them in the flesh!
I will also be offering some of his latest creations, they're different to anything you have seen before in a good way.

More news on this will follow soon.

limba strat style body
June 2012

I have just finished my new templates for an 8 string replacement body
for an ibanez RG2228. This is for the people out there who change their pickups from the stock EMG's to the more popular BKP and are left with huge holes around their pickups. Shown here with "Aftermath" pickups in the neck and bridge position. These bodies have a few alteration all IMO for the better, and more will follow.
For more information see HERE.

I keep receiving emails asking about necks and sadly I have had no time to work on them these past 2 months as I have been very busy with body orders and my real job.
I also had other things I have been meaning to do for some time too. Like adding the Steve Vai performance super strat handle as an option on my strat style bodies among other things. More to come there as you can guess.

More infomation and pictures see HERE
