Here's Gibson N-225.

New shape, sort of Nighthawk(ish)
Pinstripes by artist and hot rod painter Rick Harris.
Open chambered (not quite semi hollow)
P-90 at the neck, Dirty Fingers+ with coiltap in bridge position.
Tune-O-Matic bride with vibrola tailpiece.
Grover™ tuners with 14:1 tuning ration.


Hated by most critics on the internet,
treasured by their owners, included me. :wink:

The ROBOT guitars:

The Robots are Coming. :lol:


A Brilliant idea, however the electronics and electric/mechanical tuners probably won't last,
and when they break, will spares be available :?:

Gibson Dark Fire.


Gibson Dusk Tiger. (1000 made)


Gibson Les Paul Standard 2010 Limited Edition. (400 made)


The Min ETune system:

I very rarely play the guitars I have these days, but that Transwing one... mmmmm... probably a good thing that I can't even find one online! :lol:

Swedish chap hailing from Staines-Upon-Thames.
Noise-making gear: Cubase Elements 8, Korg Electribe 2, Yamaha MOXF6, Novation Mininova, two guitars run through a Boss GT10 and couple of jaw-harps.
Oh yeah, and the Novation KS4 is now hooked up again(even though it has to rest vertically when not used)!

Near me there is an amazing guitar designer builder and tech who once did work on one of my guitars before I did all my own work he produces some weird and wonderful guitars as well as high quality relatively normal ones. He's called Brian Eastwood some interesting guitars
