BlackMachine Guitars (Please read)

Hi everyone,

Just thought I'd ask if anyone here has heard of BlackMachine guitars? A make here in the UK as used by Pin of the excellent band Sikth if you've heard of them? If not, It wont be long now!

Basically, Custom made to your specs at a cost of around 1200 (cant do the math for the US Folk im afraid) , really amazing, the body is approx 28mm thin! Looks great, has no paint on at all, you should really have a look

But really, i was posting to ask if anyone knows much about them as I am going for the job of Sikth's guitar tech and was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on the maintainance of these wonderful pieces of art?

Any help would be most appreciated, as many of you will agree (if you look at the site i gave you) that these guitars are a little different to "regular" ones.

Thanks for your time

Our own Clive has one that I tried at the last Jemfest UK.
Very nice and solid guitar.
If you go here (bottom left corner - Jemfest 2003 UK), you can see a few pics I snapped of Paul trying it out.


p.s. The ESP in the pics is mine.
Heresy, I know but as you can see there was no shortage of Jems there.

Jesus Christ! that thing is ugly! My eyes have been spoiled from looking at LGM's latest creations. I like the color of the wood.
