This project was commission by one of our best customers
and friend Rafael
Gelpi. Click on his name (link) to check him out

had seen a picture of a guitar with a couple of skulls
and a snake on it and sent the picture in to us. He
asked if we could make it. We said sure but asked
if we could make it our own as opposed to an exact
copy. I would never copy or put down another builder's
work, but it just wasn't something I would want to
put my name on.
carver J designed, carved and painted this beauty
right away. We burnt the sides and back and gave it
a hand rubbed poly finish and soon enough this amazing
guitar was born.
guitar has a real Floyd Rose tremolo system (no knock
off stuff for Rafael), a compound radius maple on
maple neck, and a pair of cream and black zebra high
output pickups that just scream.
