These look pretty sick but the name on the headstock looks kinda lame. Do you know if anyone carries these? I'm looking for a new guitar and these seem fairly cool. Better specs than the ESP I was gonna buy.

they look nice, EMG's, schaller tuners, shame theres no original floyd on it, or a kahler. the name on the headstock does look lame, but for the money, it looks like a sweetass deal to me...

I never heard of Ran guitars before, never saw them in stores either, they probably don't sell them out of the US?

I'd never heard of Ran guitars before until i saw Vader in England. They were using Ran guitars. Anyway I think the guitars are all hand made in Poland and you have to order them or somet. But it's worth it for the price. It beats paying out loads of money for a guitar exactly the same.

Hex (Gothic) instuments are like that too. You get a custom made guitar(any shape) bolt-on for $800 Neck thu for like $1200. Independent guitar makers are usually not going to change as much as Gibson because why pay the same amount for a guitar that plays just as well when you can get a brandname. And they are not trying to rip people off, just making a living doing what they love.

There pretty neat, I played on one, a while back now.It was a Fuckin great guitar for a relatively cheap price. I first saw them being used by Vader , when i saw them in nottingham. They kicked ass. I would seriously think about buying one but their situated in poland and are a bit of a bitch to get in contact with. If i were u i'd get a custom made invader off them

even though i'm not gonna buy one, i wanna get an estimate of what one of my custom shop guitars would be on there.

edit: i'm not gonna buy one, but can i still go to the custom shop to get an estimate? i know it says click to get price at the bottom of the form, but it also says order form at the top.

Tung oil is a type of finish, instead of laquer. This gives u a nice smooth feel, but this with cause the neck to warp earleir than laquer would because laquers harder.
