really like the shape of that custom made guitar. what's it called? :D

sorta like a cross between a PRS and an Ibanez. very impressed. nice woodgrain. good choice in not painting over it.

of course, im a fan of jon's and have a bass made by him, so you might have to take my opinions with a grain of salt. but you guys owe it to yourself to check out his stuff. seriously. :)

Bluejem,

Bro pa-pm naman magkano inaabot ung magpa-custom made ng guitar lalo na ung guitar na walang paint, simply awesome.
Gaano din katagal bago magawa ung guitar?

I'll be coming to Manila again for a vacation in summer(Phil.) Kaya maganda makapag canvass na... I know there are a lot of good luthiers out there, kaya I want to keep my options open.
I've always wanted to have a custom made guitar from the Philippines, para pag dinala ko dito, astig! Kakaiba. 8-)

Thnaks!

hey sdmf..

better contact jon regarding price details.. with the price it really depends.. mostly sa hardwares ikaw naman ang bibili.. and the details (production) of the guitar must be considered.. kung mahirap gawin mas mahal. ayos ang mga kahoy na ginamit sa mga nakita kong custom nya.

regarding sa bilis.. mabilis sya gumawa given na ready na lahat(hardwares, design..etc..) pero depende parin sa detail ng guitar itself. it would take sometime kung ma detalye..

hope this helps
