Custom Guitars is introducing its first production models to the guitar market. The Arachnoid 1 is 100% hand built in the USA using traditional and innovative techniques. After years of effort to challenge conventional appearances and styles of guitars, Ikon Customs feels it has finally reached a new pinnacle in guitar design, appearance and manufacturing. The body of the Arachnoid 1 is constructed of a poplar wood core for strength and tone and a proprietary resin compound that allows the builders to sculpt and shape finished bodies into new and innovative designs. The resin compound took many prototypes and years to finalize before committing to final production. In addition to the proprietary compounds, Ikon Customs also builds bodies using other materials such as fiberglass, carbon fiber and Kevlar. Founder and President, Marc Anthony H. Bertone feels that with these new materials, his design concepts will be limitless. The Arachnoid 1 is available in three models:
