Pics of my new Ran guitar

Felt like starting a new thread, hope it doesn't chap any asses...

I just got home from college for Fall break and this is the first opportunity I've had to see and play my new guitar. I have to say it's near perfect, it came set up great and looks and sounds beautiful. They really did a nice job. These pics aren't the greatest, they have some glare, but you get the idea...

One of the whole guitar:

The bridge:

Inlays, including the twelfth fret:

And finally, the headstock:

Excuse me, I have to go change my underwear now.

It's set up great, the action is really nice..I have another guitar with the same pickup (EMG-81) which sounds great, but unfortunately, I forgot to bring a working cord home and I have to get a soldering iron and fix one before I can play it properly, so I'll have to let you know about the sound later today or tomorrow..

I can say that it plays great, and it's nice to have 24 frets to play with. Also, the tremolo is really sweet, I've been doing some diving and it's stayed in tune really well so far. The pics don't do it justice, but the paint job is great..deep red, and black bevels, and there is some texture to the paint also..it's fucking gorgeous.

Finally, the case is nice, shaped just like the guitar and with matching red padding on the inside. A nice touch.

So, I have to stick with Soulinsane and wholeheartedly recommend this company to anyone that wants a nice custom guitar.

I'm thinking that it's now included in the shipping cost. Dariusz switched shipping campanies after I had problems.

Holy shit...
I just checked out Ran's website and they let you customize your own guitar. I've never seen a guitar company do that. How much do their guitars usually cost and is it well made; good quality?


Nice guitar fritz

It is nice that you can customize absolutely anything, including body style, for much less than the price of the big-name American guitars.. plays as well as any of the big-name models I've seen also. Customs fee could be included in the shipping cost now.. I didn't pay it, but we agreed on a price before Soulinsane had his probs.

Yep, the bevels are a great touch, really ties the whole look together. And yeah, it's neck-thru.
