In Florida on vacation and stopped in and surprised the Electra folk.

So were you taking your Talon in for it's one year tune-up Rondo? Is that a Invicta Prototype on the floor? I like the wave at the end of the headstock, nice touch. I didn't know they were going to try a Outlaw model, it won't be the same without the 'Hello Kitty' pickguard. Here's to a good clean Spring Break, Cheers!

These were a few prototype models that Ben had in his wood room that he has been working on.

So I just pee'd a little.... :hyper:


So... TELL US... what's going on with them?! Will they still make the Korean models or is it only USA production? Any other new models waiting in the wings?! We're all ears... what did you talk about?!?!

...there are 2 Outlaw configurations. The one I see in your hand is ok until you remove the neck heel...once the heel is removed there is not enough wood left where the neck joins the body. The second configuration the neck pickup cutout has been moved further away from the neck leaving more wood support...much stronger

Who's that in the picture? yyzrondo? Or the Electra guy?

Is it in optical illusion that the body on guitar in his left hand looks larger and more substantial than the body of the one on the floor?

I've wondered about cutting an invicta shape out of a Les Paul body, something a little more substantial, and with a carved top, and that's what the one in his left hand looks like to me. Of course, it's hard to tell from a picture.

That's RONDO man!

Hope to see some new stuff from them. Don't think I will get any time off to visit, but I do have a brother down there and some other friends too so I have lots of excuses to visit.
