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

Controls or no, I still think it's pretty darn 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

Nice. I like it. That neck/headstock joint is actually a very good one. It is frowned upon by some for being cheaper to make (less raw wood) but being of two colors makes it very nice. 6.5 lbs and contoured body... must feel like a pair of lovely slippers.

Not really digging it. I don't care for maple fretboards, I'm not a fan of guitars that look like furniture, and on a much pickier note, they should have selected a different type of tuner for that headstock. Those tuners look really cluttered and crammed in there. I think something with a smaller footprint would have looked much cleaner. But then who the hell really spends much time looking at the back of the headstock? See, I told you it was picky.
