Hi everyone!

This is our second Poisonwood Catalyst 7 to come out of the workshop. It's got some subtle changes to the first Catalyst 7 and will be shortly winging it's way over to Croatia to live with it's new owner!

Per the customer's requests, we changed the headstock shape and outfitted it with a pair of Bare Knuckle Pickups® Aftermaths and a black Schaller® Hannes® bridge. We also swapped the side block inlay for some Luminlay® side dots and glow-in-the-dark rings on the front face of the board.

Hey folks!

We have something a little different from our usual wares today. We were commissioned, by a good customer of ours, to make a body to fit a neck he provided to us. The body was to be based around the Peavey Vandenberg design and be a "homage to 80s shred".

The body sports Seymour Duncan® pickups and an Official Floyd Rose® bridge. We made some Ebony pickup surrounds and Wenge cavity covers and finished the whole guitar in satin "Alpine White" with custom decals.

Big thanks go out to Musical Instrument Rehab for their help with the stellar paint job!

Hi everyone!

We have a cool new resin hybrid model for you all today. This guitar is built with a burl of Vasticola with a surround of black pigmented resin. When we planed up the Vasticola and saw the amazingly deep red colour we thought it would be best to pair it with black resin to really make it "pop".

This combination pretty much sealed the deal of this model being a full bore "metal" guitar and we equipped it with a pair of Bare Knuckle Pickups® Juggernauts to give it the raw power required.

We decided to name this model the "Erebus" after the Greek god of darkness. We feel it's an apt name given the guitar's aesthetic and general mood.

Let us know what you think and have a look at the full specs at the end of the post!
