Cool Custom Js Inspired

Hello There,

Finally time has come to meet my new guitar made by Levent Sendoganlar of Epidemic Guitars, Turkiye.

https://www.facebook.com/EpidemicGuitars

Lets see the specs, first;

Body: 2 piece center joined lightweight korina
Neck: One piece Honduran Mahogany
Neck Profile: Macho Profile - Chunky C, 1" thickness @1st fret, 1,1" @12th fret
Fretboard: Pau Ferro
Radius: 12"
Inlays: Abalone
Frets: Jescar FW55090-S STAINLESS STEEL
Pickups: Zebra Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Set (w/ polyester film caps, Kinman Type Treble Bleed)
Bridge: Hipshot
Tuners: Gotoh
Nut: White TusQ
Finish: Tung Oil
Total weight: 3,11 Kg

Guitars body is inspired from Ibanez radius. But not a clone. I hate skinny wizard necks so that i go to Levent to give an order something in my taste. Here it is;
















I'll write a very detailed review for my blog, Guitarism.

Re: Custom Js Inspired

Good lord, I love the look of that fretboard, and the anodized strap buttons are a surprisingly cool touch. Fretwire looks fairly heavy too, which i smy main complaint with the JS series.

I tried to follow the link to your review, but it just went to the blog main page and I didn't see anything there...

Drew, thank you a lot for your kind words. It seriously great guitar thanks to my skilled luthier and his almost bare hands (yep, no cnc).

The link goes to my blog which i couldnt upload a review because i need to understand and commune with it fully to reflect better and more useful reviews.

Re: Custom Js Inspired

Looking good Barış. What is the red button looking thing next to the output jack? Some sort of kill switch?
