  • Zachary Guitars.

    came across this tonight and thought you could all use a laugh. Keep in mind you can't just call him up and buy one but you have to APPLY for one of his guitars. he claims his strings are only correct string sets on the market. Man this dude sounds full of himself.

    Body Wood
    I use whatever woods I currently have in stock at any one time or what I find in the dupster at Home Depot.
    Almost anything goes, there are no rules.

    Regular un-figured wood - (no extra charge)
    Figured wood - (extra charge, depending on the wood)


    ----------------

    Well that is a turn on! I bet he uses "Select Tonewood"

      Also, at the very bottom of the home page, there is a list of guitar keywords

      "If you are looking for any of these very fine guitar products, you should really check out this page as well."

      He names off a billion guitar keywords... he only does this to make his site show up in search engines. 'Bots' read these keywords and know when to bring up his site. Man this guy is crazy

        dude is a little off his rocker, that's for sure, but I tried a couple of sets of his strings and to me they really did feel better than regular store strings. Could just be psychological but you never know....

          F1 based on the Telecaster, I reinvented this guitar and believe to have made it as it should have been. Gues he didn't her the phrase " Leo got it right the first time." And if that's the way the Tele was supposed why aren't more people playing them.

              I looked at some of the guitars, he wants 2700 for one and he doesn't even know what wood he used to make it. Who the Hell would buy that?

              I do agree about the strings though, I buy packs of each individual string and I can make myself a set that I like way more than a typical pack of 10s or 11s. Well, I agree that 10-46 isn't perfect, but maybe not with anything else he said (I couldn't be bothered to read all that ****************).

                Some of them look pretty cool, some are just fender copies and some look to suck rocks. Someone must buy his bull**************** apparently. I'm thinking it would get old real fast in person.

                  He may be a bit of a nut ball but the clips I've heard of his guitars sound fantastic.





                  And I do agree with some of his opinions of some of the high end boutique makers. He just comes across as a wanker. But ****************...proof is in the pudding and I'd say his guitars deliver....at least based on youtube clips.

                      Crazy? I don't know. He's odd, to be sure. But, I'd happily say I was the one who built many of the guitars on his site. If you take the rhetoric out of the equation, the guy makes some very interesting guitars, apparently to a high degree, using unconventional materials. We should be thankful we have a few crazies out there who look at woods most of us would pay no regard to and say "Why not?"

                      I like unconventional. Not just for the heck of it, like some of the new Gary Kramer body designs, or Gibson's reverse V, but with some reasoning & methodology behind his departures from traditional design. Yeah, he's a little odd & maybe arrogant, but I think his guitars are cool.

                      Different & would own:

                        His arrogance is off-putting to say the least. If Fender or Gibson had to make sure they felt you deserved to own one of their guitars they wouldn't sell very many.

                          guy i know has one and he says its the best guitar he's ever played.

                          i'm probably not "good enough" to purchase one.

                            He makes some sweet guitars, but the headstocks are ugly as **************** and he's a total douchebag. He's another one of those snake oil salesman talking about "You can hear and feel the difference between a guitar made with a CNC machine and a guitar made by hand" (whatever the **************** that's supposed to mean? I guess he uses his hand to route the pickups?)

                              not impressed and certainly wouldn't say his guitars "deliver" because the sound in a youtube clip. decent pickups duct taped to a 2x4 would sound decent. Anybody remember the cinder block guitar?



                              His guitars aren't worth what he's asking and he certainly doesn't have a good enough product to be that arrogant. If you take the ****************tiest Chinese import and put the same pickups he's using in them they will sound basically the same. Upgrade the tuners and bridge and you'll have a decent guitar for 1/10th the price and you won't have to deal with his attitude.
