What We Think

Wow! We are very impressed with this new offering from Master Luthier Bill Comins. These new solidbodies have tons of resonance and sustain for days. The ergonomic body shape makes for a very comfortable, playable instrument. Tonally they have all the bark and bite of a great Les Paul without the muddiness in the low end. This is a serious machine that is meant to rock, hard and loud. Bill has truly accomplished a wonderful feat with this guitar. There are not many luthiers known for their masterful archtops that can cross over into the solidbody world and create a splash this big!

Take a good close look at the stunning flame top and the detail of the cutaway! A true piece of art that happens to perform just as well as it looks!
