It's one of 2- you see in the picks the tan/brown (upper one) is the twin with a reversed headstock. If you really like the lighter bleached one, it's for sale too, but for $500 more- It was a nightmare to build that one... It's identical with the reversed headstock and all wenge is bleached to tan/brown except the subtle natural wenge block inlays on the fretboard.

I worked at fender guitars in Corona, Ca for 3 miserable years in a dead end entry level job. I built these as a "see what I can do? Gimme a better job!" These were built by me at home on my own time and my own tools. They were set up by one of the leading Jackson guitar techs.

I will also take any custom orders on any body shape or design feature. I also hand carve designs like this-
