about sa completion x-mas gift ko na sa sarili ko yung gitara hahahaha!! 2009 ko pa yata ako magpopost ng clips dito namanamin ko muna yung gitara para masanay ako  :-D

Ano ka ba? :-) Ako nga dapat mahiya kasi di ko pa kinukuha sa'yo. :-D Pero ok lang yun bro, I trust you naman e. No worries whatsoever about the shirt. :-)
Baka next sunday bro punta ko dun, magpaplit kami ng shift sa office e. Pm kita bro ahead of time. :wink:

Oo nga e, di ko pa nakita anino nyang guitar mo. Gandang gift yan for xmas! Pag punta ko, hanapin ko yan pag di nakatingin si Mang Max! :-D

hello there...

introducing the Scepter. hand-built by Max Rufo inspired by Abe Rivera's guitar of the same name.

price: didn't cost me a leg

high-resolution pics and vids to follow. still trying to get used to playing with a 2-inch nut and ultra-heavy gauge strings (.014 .017 .024w .032 .042 .052).

































thank you so much Mang Max for this wonderful work of art.  :-)

Wooow! Indeed. It is a work of art.

The pickguard & knobs, are those ebony?

Maganda sir, the best I've seen in this thread! Does it have a shorter scale? The fretboard looks shorter than the 24.75" Gibson scale. Share the specs naman and wood species, overall very nice custom guitar sir!!!

Pacustom na kayo lahat!  Kaso pagdumami na tyo nakapila, mukhang magtatagal na gumawa si Mang max, baka mag-overload... BOOOOm!  Joke lang, I know he can balance everything.  Magaling naman sya at alam nya yung ginagawa nya.  Isang abangan nyo kay mang max pagnagpunta ako dun eh yung mahiwagang sulok nya kung san nya hinuhugot lahat ng references nya, di nya pinagdadamot, pede makibasa at madami ka pa malalaman.  Lahat din ng standards nya eh by the book, sasabihin naman nya kung feasible yung pinapagawa nya or kung kaya nya, di sya nagsisinungaling at yun ang mahalaga sa lahat.  Very transparent sya, sa lahat.  pati sa trade secret, dehin nya sinuswapang.  Kwela pa kausap, lagi nakangiti.

Sa kaso ko kase kaya ako nagpacustom, since I was 10 yrs old, namangha na ako sa guitara, si mang Rudy Discipolo ang mentor ko sa troubleshooting, repair and set-up ng guitar until his passing. Tambay kami palagi ni erpat sa makati shop ng RJ hanggang sa nagkaroon sila ng unang store sa Galleria.  I bought one of Mang Rudy's custom made RJ guitar, sad to say, kinabayo ng anak ko yun at nagloose mga bolt screwholes sa neck.  Paparestore ko kay mang Max yun pero isa-isa lang, sisiw na yun sa kanya.  Yung isang Custom design ko muna sa april, tapos yun na, Maganda kasi sa custom guitar, kung ano ka, yun yung guitara na lalabas, kung ano gusto mo specs, mababa action, manipis na neck, wat type of wood, ano shape, custom made para syo.  Mahalaga na madiscuss lahat ng aspect ng gitara na papacustom kasi kung ano yung gusto mo, yun yung gagawin sa guitar. 

Tawag nlang kayo kay mang max para recta yung inquiries....

idol magkano inabot ng razor back mo?

trip ko din kasi yan kaya lang gusto ko yung flametop na white, bebenta ko na din mga branded guitars ko hahahahah..peace

thanx

tama ka dun sobrang transparent ni mang max no hidden issues pag kausap mo. kaya nga yung dinala naming scale model ng pinapagawa ko sa kanya tinanong ulit niya ako kung may ipapabago pa kami sabi namin ni utol wala na. pero sinabi din namin siya na bahala kung may gusto siyang idagdag na tingin niyang ok. ang gagawin ko na lang sa ngayon ay mag-antay ng december para makasama ko na yung gitara ko. basta pag natapos na yung gitara ko post ako dito ng clips at mga pics siguro.

Ah! Ayos! Ganyan din yung plan ko for my custom, ganda kasi pag wood din yung other parts ng guitar para mas organic yung dating.

Tentative pa yung next Sunday Darryl, baka kasi may puntahan din ako, pero pm kita before then.

Bryan,
Do you have the same 25" scale length for your Hellboy PRS? I'm thinking between 22" & 24" scale length for my custom... hmmm...  :roll:

It probably is.
PRS has longer scale length than Gibson's but not as long as Fender's. It's like the middle ground between those 2. I'd love to have one like that.  :-)
