    What's with the single volume controls on dual-humbucker guitars? Haven't these guys listened to Jimmy Page? :robotmad:

        I can't decide . I just don't know.

        Looks great,kind of probably plays great except for the controls .

        This is one I would have to try in order to decide,

        so if you would like to drop it off sometime let me know

      Somewhat unattractive to begin with and then it has zebra pickups ...

        Hot.  Like others say, I don't really like the control layout, but I do like the body carve, flame and the quarter-sawn neck.

           A bit pale overall for me.  Perhaps with a rosewood board .....?

        Controls are fine by me. I'd rather have separate tone controls than volumes. Hot enough.

          Looks like something Prince would play. Definitely not hot.

            I'm sure it's a lovely playing instrument, but I'm having a little trouble getting past the maker's name.

            I just can't see myself walking into a guitar store and saying, "I'd like to play your Skermetta"

            I made that mistake with the, "Dot on The Shaft" guitars, and I shant make it again

            Lukewarm, looks well crafted, but yeah, awfully palle and unfinished looking. Headstock shape is rather disappointing. Probably plays like buttah though! -Adam
