Rick ,

Once again I wanted to thank you for your amazing work building my Black Mamba. This instrument is truly a work of art! You have been a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. I absolutely love the abalone inlays, both on the neck and in the knobs. Thanks so much for suggesting that I go with them. Those, along with the AAA Birds-Eye Maple neck really do set it off as a very unique guitar…. Uniquely MINE!!

The set-up is perfect. And your attention to detail is superb! As advertised this is a “Gig-Ready” guitar. The neck and action are smoother than anything I’ve ever played. And the combination of the SRV pickups with the EXG and SPC give this baby such a wide range of tones and personalities, I’m thinking of naming her Sybil! She goes from a soft and sweet baby doll to a flame throwing she-devil with the flick of a wrist. I LOVE IT!

I will definitely be recommending you to anybody I know that may be in the market for a new guitar. Dollar for dollar this was by far the best value out there. I could not have gone anywhere and bought an instrument with half the features I wanted for the same price you gave me on this one with everything I asked for (and a few extras)!

Hopefully early next year I’ll be ready to have you start a new project. That Great Bigsby Tele has really got my attention. Of course, I’d have you add a few modifications, but I know it would be a magnificent axe. Keep up the good work! I’ll be in touch.
