" I built this guitar for myself all by hand the "Old-School Way" in my shop, it took a lot of hours but i'm thrilled with how it turned out, I don't do this for a living...I am just passionate about building guitars as a labor of love... unfortunately I realize I can't keep all of the guitars I build so I have decided to put this one up for sale, honestly if I don't sell this one that's OK with me because I've been using it and it plays Fantastic!UPDATE: I was asked to play a few songs for a friends Birthday bash and I took this guitar with me to use...WOW! Did it ever play Fantastic!  now i'm having Sellers remorse...Lol! *NOTE-This guitar is listed as "Used" and may have some minor blems/flaws/checking etc. from me playing it but I really can't find any on it...

* "I built this guitar for myself because I can't afford the $7000-$15000 price tag on some of these type guitars, i'm just a working stiff that loves guitars and these are just plain CooL! so I decided to build one based on the one James Hetfield of Metallica plays (i'm a Huge Het Fan)... however I did change the knob locations and toggle switch on this one" ============
