Pics! My new GMW Lynch

Here is my new baby. Lee Garver at GMW made this for me. It CRANKS. Killer unfinished neck which feels as good or better than an '84 Charvel neck, Duncan Custom Custom and Coil Rails (sounds amazing), and a non-recessed Floyd. Killer Dan Lawrence graphic. I am pretty pumped. I did sell my 7VWH to appease the wife but luckily still have my 7VSBL!

Dude...that is a real looker. I was going to have lee do a 7 string for me but finances took a change for the worse. I am going to have him do it this spring. Everytime i see his work, I get all excited for when I will finally have mine done.

Why did that finish ever get christened the "submarine" graphic? It's definitely one of my favourite Lynch guitars, and was probably responsible for getting me hooked on reverse headstocks back in the late '80s.

Cool replica!

Very nice! I just love the reverse headstock. Something about those up-turned Jackson-style headstocks...

It looks normal to me. That's generally how they look without a pickguard.

I don't know how the "submarine" thing got started either. I have heard "submarine", "orange submarine", "orange camo" and "Russian Submarine". I did a little research and can't find any submarine that looks similar to my guitar. I have seen some aviation camo that some of the wierd shapes. That baby was always my favorite Lynch guitar. I owned a couple ESP sig models but always wanted this one. This is the first time I have really got excited about a guitar since '97 I guess. I LOVE IT.

German subs near the end of the second world war and some American subs in the Pacific sported "abstract" camo to make them harder to spot in moving seas... They were never orange of course, but the mix of broad, solid abstract shapes is about right... The plating lines with the rivets are supposed to represent the sub's hull, I guess... Overall, the effect is very similar to the actual sub camo used back then, though the colors are different.







ps ~ that's an awesome looking axe!

Compare to the original here: http://georgelynch.com/guitars/submarine.html

The gold hardware is kind of a nice touch, though i prefer chrome myself.

I debated between chrome or gold harware and decided to go with the gold. A lot of the vintage Charvel's used gold hardware so I went with it. The pics don't really do the orange color justice- that orange almost glows it is so bright. I can't wait to get another GMW!! I think I may be done with standard production guitars. GMW can build anything you can dream up and they are affordable. Don't get me wrong, I still love my 7VSBL and RG520QS but I really miss some of the wild graphics from the 80s

p.s. thanks for the info Jimi D! Cool stuff.

Hehe, JimiD how did you find that picture of a Polish-made model of a German submarine anyway?

The lock nut behind a regular nut is an interesting idea.

Greg: Floyds (and Floyd licensees) were the only system that used a true "locking nut", as that was likely also a part of the Floyd Rose patents. Every other locking trem system used a behind-the-nut lock.

Much better control over the width, depth and spacing of the nut slots was possible and they could be customized to suit the fretboard radius or player's preferences. The disadvantage was that it was one more place where string slack could bind, so it wasn't as consistently stable as a true locking nut.

I still think the best locking nuts were the old Yamaha ones that were surface mounted and height-adjustable.
