Here's a cool one!..The next in the Dina range, unique in many ways, it has a composite maple and rosewood fretboard, the middle maple strip is dyed blue and inlayed with perloid stars, binding strips either side of the maple seperate the red rosewood before it's all finished off with edge binding resulting in a unique stars and stripes fretboard. It has a set mahogany neck that is quite slim, the body is thinline, countoured and built from poplar so it is extremely light weight and finished in aged nitro cellulose, airbrushed USA flag. The pickups are custom wound P90's and are superb. This guitar is somewhat like an SG special but with a more solid feel and it just screams! (Click on the picture for more details)

£1800 .

The Dina III guitar is a unique design based on a classic shape. The body is mahogany with a flamed maple cap routed to be thinline with a solid centre core. The neck is a quarter sawn mahogany set neck with reverse angled headstock . The fretboard is ebony, bound and inlayed with perloid crowns. And of course finished in a beautiful transparent green and black nitrocelulose lacquer sunburst. Quality materials have been used throughout, before even plugging in, the guitar has a lovely acoustic tone with plenty of sustain, I'm sure aided by the string through body. It's lightweight, well balanced with a 24 fret neck. A very unique guitar and sure to stir a lot of admiring looks at any gig. (Click on the picture for more details).

One of a kind violin bass, It's semi hollow with an arched back and top, built in the style of a violin but somewhat guitar shaped, string through body, blend, volume and tone are on the top edge (wheel style) and fitted with Seymour Duncan pickups. It has a 34inch scale length, with a tunomatic bridge and unique hand carved double bass style headstock. The guitar is finished in vintage nitro cellulose and is very lightly aged, built in tulip wood with a maple neck.

I wanted to continue my trend of taking vintage/classic style guitars but building something unique. I am REALLY not planning to make another of these, it was SO much work, carving the top and back and especially the headstock which took an age. So here it is, my take on a violin bass. if you want a bass to make the audience gasp then this is most probably going to do that and you can honestly tell them that there isn't another one like it ANYWHERE and there most probably never will! I hope you like it.
