O ano? post pics or gtfo?







5 pc mahogany/kamagong neck through yeah.

I got to talk to mang Max yesterday, he said the neck is really painstaking since it's neck through & 5 pc.
I gotta see this guitar kick some @$$ live.  :wink:

the neck looks wicked!  :evil: sana matapos na para makita ang pics.

sa pagkakaalam ko, kailangan mo pang gumastos ng malaki para magkaron ng 5-pc neck (ultra maple-walnut nga lang ang gamit na mga kahoy) via ibanez prestige guitars!  :-o

Yes, that is due to the extensive labor & time given but I'm sure Max's price is way affordable than the branded ones.

Arie - repair, restoration, go to him with your high-end stuff
Jon - Pinoy "premium" custom-builder
Max - Value-priced custom-builder
Jun - not really sure what he does... I saw the stuff on his website and can't figure out if he has a niche of sorts


A very good classification PRSMan.

Mang Rudy could be safely badged as the father of local Luthiers. Jun Castro learned from him, one of Elegees people came from RJ who was personaly trained by Mang Rudy.

I learned alot from mang Rudy! May god bless his soul!  Kung kanino nyo gusto dun kayo..  Walang pilitan..  Kung kanino kayo masaya at kung kanino ninyo makukuha yung saya ng serbisyo edi sa kanya kayo pumunta. 

Kung masaya ka sa Baker mo edi dun ka kay Baker.  Para kang nagsabi na iboto mo si Pedro sa kampanya ng taga suporta ni Juan.. Buo ka ng thread mo about your beloved luthier or builder tapos pakasaya ka dun.

Iba si Mang Doro kay Mang Rudy, si Mang Rudy started out Roadtone way back during the 80's nasa Mandaluyong Circle pa shop niya nun. Si Mang Doro naman sa Audiophile nagsimula pero may shop rin siya sa Sta Mesa. Pero ngayon nasa Guitar911 si Mang DEoro ngayon after masunog ang RJ factory.
I have stated that there are more bad sounding suhrs then there are good ones.

A ok. now I fully understand, & confirmed my friend Dyuggs is truly Mang Doro's long time friend & client.. he's well respected by RJ & his peers.. si Pepe Smith pala best friend ni Mang Doro.thanks a lot

This guitar intrigues me so much... perhaps it's that radical shape & the 5-piece neck.

Paengkee,
You should bring that guitar on our Grand EB for all Max Rufo's customers. It will take a while though.
