    I love the Rist tailpiece. Makes me want a beer.

    The only thing I don't understand about the Rist tailpiece is why isn't it a bit wider so the strings can run straight over the bridge saddles?

    Was thinking the same until I remembered that a traditional tailpiece on say a violin or cello has a tapered string path to the bridge... if the saddles are notched correctly (which no doubt they are here) shouldn't be any issue or function any different, it's just aesthetics.

    Bingo!

    The taper has no effect tuning wise on the instrument. The tailpiece is designed for aesthetics and to add a bit of bite. it is made out of solid milled stainless and is anchored directly to the face of the guitar. I have done many guitars with this and have been pleased with each and every one....as have the clients.
    You'd be surprised at how many specifically request this TP over the more conventional counterparts. unfortunately I'm out of stock till I get some more made up.

    Here is another guitar with this TP. all korina.

    And another.

    The parts are milled out of aircraft grade stainless billet. On darker sounding guitars it gives just a bit more top end bite and it sustains like crazy.

    Both the TP and bridge were designed just for that extra bit of edge and uniqueness. It is damn easy in the market flooded with MANY guitar builders to get lost in the crowd. every little thing that enhances and sets one's instruments out from the others is a good thing in my eyes.
    :D

    @Karbens.
    Speaking of which; I like this design of yours more and more every time I see it. that's a winner in my eyes. :yesway:

    Ps. I also love that Gotoh bridge. It is one of the more practical and comfortable designs out there.

    Here is one on my personal Workhorse prototype.

    You're welcome...the compliments are well deserved.

    It is kind of a cross between SG, LPjr, DC PRS all wrapped up with your own touches. It is a very familiar, yet fresh design.:yesway:


    There! add that to your list of quotes!:D

    This one is about 99% done, and it's mean! Need to take some good pictures. It's for sale, but I doubt this is the right audience for that :lol:

    Needs a few tweaks and a final polish, but this thing is as good as done!

    My buddies wanna test out their new prime lenses next week so im making them use my guitar as a test subject. Also there will be a better video. But here we go dudes!!!

    Body: Sapele
    Top: 3/4in Carved figured walnut
    Neck: Monterillo
    Hardware: hipshot
    Pickups : Seymour duncan, Custom 5 bridge and Jazz neck
    26 scale length
    pau ferro board
    coil tap on volume, no tone.

    This guitar sounds great on any patch i have on my Pod HD.
    But this guitar SHINES through a tube amp. I am super proud of this one and im glad its going to my buddy Ryan. Hes a fantastic player and I owe him bigtime for giving me a place to stay when I was stuck in a blizzard years ago. Since that time hes handed down a ton of gear to me, and along with that, a library of knowledge that he's acquired through his years as FOH and a studio engineer.

    Without further ado...
