i wasn't able to play his les paul w/the narra body but the look was really astonishing! mang max was able to copy the exact shape of the les paul custom! when i looked closer to that naked LP, i was in total awe cuz he didn't make its body solid, it is a semi hollow LP w/ thicker top, back & sides so it doesn't feel like an acoustic.

haven't seen or heard anything like it so i think mang max just made a history, or at least locally.
narra is a bit heavier compared to other tonewoods so i guess his aim was to even the balance when u play it & to give u that semi-hollow tone!

really nice LP, i can't wait to have one from him soon!

asteeg gusto ko sanang magpagawa ng neck at fret board na may led lights.....
it is possible dude!
i asked mang max about that & he sd it can be done!
but it will definitely require extra time & effort since that's a bit difiicult. 8-)

guys,

some of u may have known him, still...
i'd like u to meet this luthier who makes quality guitars & basses!  8-)
he's the very out-going, entertaining mang max as others my have known.  :-)
i want all guitarists & bassists who wanted to have QUALITY Guitars & Basses at VERY AFFORDABLE PRICES to know/meet him!  :-)

tell u a story:
i went to his house a couple of weeks ago & i had my strat repaired by him & i was in total awe after i got it!
imagine this:
-he replaced the old cheap plastic nut w/ a stainless steel
-adjusted the truss rod & bridge for better tension, playability & action
-he fixed cut wires & hard-to-turn knobs
-cleaned the rusted metal parts
- replaced my old strings w/ brand new d'addario .10-.46 strings!
ALL THAT FOR P600 ONLY!

i cudn't believe it @ first but, hey, that's the fact! :-)
he also has a wealth of woods & some exotics, replacement parts, abalone inlays etc. etc..
i was lucky enough to try out his strat, flying V, & his tele w/ custom inlays (same as that of steve vai's guitars!) & the sound is superb! he even sat on top of the tele's fretboard to show how tough his woods are!

doesn't want to compare him to other luthiers here but can't help it, for me, his guitars look & sound better! & mang max's prices are way too low compared to other luthiers! believe me! i called a few famous luthiers here @ the forum before but i got disappointed w/ their prices... good thing mang max was there to help me out!

i'm now saving up so i cud have my own custom les paul & i plan to have it w/ abalone inlays & bindings haha!  8-) made by him of course!

here's his thread:  http://talk.philmusic.com/board/index.php/topic,37973.0.html

give him a call guys: 3600584

hope we cud help out this very humble guy!

i don't think so dude, mang max already has outlines or blueprint of some of the most famous guitar & bass bodies there.

saw a few of the famous shapes: strat, les paul, flyng V, iceman, tele... the others i forgot the brand, the names of the shapes rather.
