NGD Doug Wilkes Custom

Hi a friend of mine just received this:

It's made by a UK luthier called Doug Wilkes, (http://www.wilkesguitars.co.uk/index.htm) based in Stoke, (Slash's home town). He's been making guitars for years and for a while in the '80s had one of few UK guitar factories. I guess his business sense didn't match his skill as a builder and the factory eventually closed.
I thought I'd post it because I think it looks great, but also there is a debate elsewhere about the advantages of through-neck guitars. My friend is a long time Les Paul fan and certainly feels this is the most resonant and sustaining guitar he's had.
Cheers,
Jim
