    It had better exceed a "Reverend" or I'll send them back. and thats a promise.



    I really liked them.. but Peerless wasn't able to handle what we asked for.

    Some of Johns designs are not so "production friendly" unless you have certain equipment.

        good luck, you guys. this is watching a dream in the midst of becoming reality. thank you for including us here. what kind of hardware (pickups, pots, tuners, etc.) should buyers expect to get on these guitars? is it manufactured and assembled overseas, or shipped to the states for assembly here in the US?

            You got me seriously thinking about selling my faded SG. Honestly, I play my Korean Dean Soltero a heck of a lot more.



            I want the single coils though!!!!!!

              SPAM or no SPAM, I'm in at the $500 level and am keeping my fingers crossed that the program succeeds.

              It's not my favorite of the Backlund designs but it's still quite cool and at $500 it was a pretty easy decision for me.

                this is so great to see. i bought an Insane Gain from Bruce almost 10 years ago. watching this whole thing come together on HC has been amazing. i wish i had $500 right now, but it's not to be. good luck with it.

                  I'm this >< close to buying in. Are the fretboards rosewood or is maple also an option?

                    I'm a little embarrassed by the Leo comparison, Bruce.....maybe I'd be more properly paired up with Orville Redenbacker, or those Bartles & James guys...but I probably play a guitar a bit better than Leo did...though ironically....on my/his Telecaster.

                      Wow. These ought to be nice guitars, then.

                      I hope it's a big hit for you guys. A lot of us do kinda feel connected to these, having seen the badass drawings Back when.

                        John,

                        In my opinion, your guitars are like pieces of art. They are completely beautiful in my eyes...

                        If they play only half as good as they look, I am totally in for one!

                          I'm waiting for the answer to this too! Gotta have mah rosewood!



                          Also, would like a little more detail on the hardware if possible - especially the hardtail and tremolo bridges used, as well as the pickups.



                          I'll probably spring for one of these either way though. Pretty cool!

                            Hop on board early and get one for $500?



                            That's a great idea. Cool looking guitars.

                              Seriously interested here, but put me in the camp of wanting a few more specs.

                              Even if they are best guesses I imagine you can give some idea what you have in mind to make these deliverable.



                              Hipshot Bridges?

                              Pickup Brand/Models?

                              Rosewood or Maple?

                              Neck Wood?

                              Body Wood?

                              Colors? Everything talks about 8 colors, but only 5 are shown.
