Looks beautiful, amazing work. That guy has made a nine string too, right?

looks beautiful, but I'd be worried that it is trying to be all things to all men, and may have design compromises making it avarage at everything rather than very good at a few things. I may of course be entirely wrong!

Be interested in seeing the full specs.

That fanned fret design is the most innovative thing I've seen in guitars in forever. I've seen it on the Novax guitars. I hope we start seeing it in lower priced guitars soon, it really makes sense.

Those are gorgeous guitars... a bit too flashy for my liking but gorgeous nonetheless.

Gorgeous woods and interesting stainless steel "fret bars", but i find the design of them to be too disjointed for my tastes.

"disjointed" is a good word to describe their design, and I agree. I do like that disjointed look though although I can't really judge some of the pictures, since they seem to all be taken at an annoying angle...

Kinda odd...

Eh, I'm more of a traditionalist. It looks like a very nice, well-made guitar, but to be honest, I'd take the Swan over it any day, week, or month of the year.

My favorite looks seem to be PRS and RG.

Jesus. That thing screams "Art Decco" so hard it nearly makes me sick. May be lacking a touch here and there in the "subtlety" department, but there's no denying it's eye-catching...

Any word on how they play?
