I mailed them the Kahler trem for installation. They don't have them but I know they would like to. I had one brand new that I was waiting to be put on a guitar just like the one Ran made me.

I wonder if they could route all the pickups routes.. bridge route... ect. I want a unfinished body and neck so i can just install whatever pickups i want, what bridge i want... and finish it the way i want. should be cheaper too.

That does sound like a good idea.
But you would still have to go through with all that customs bullshit like Soulinsane did...

Maybe not. Anything with a value decleared under $200 USD isn't taxed by customs and has no reason to stay with Customs.

Because Dariusz insures for the cost of the items. No way to get around Customs if they know its insured for over $200. Customs might seize an item forever if they believe some kind of fraud is involved.

USPS???? Our Post Office (the UK that is) makes yours look like your mail is delivered by God himself.

I live in the UK, slightly cheaper still to send stuff, as as cool as Vader and Decapitated look like with this things, I think I may end up buying a custom axe from a luthier I know. I do a guitar shops website, they don't normally have anything I fancy, cos they deal in old Gretschs, Gibsons and all that stuff, but their luthier knows his shit, and he'll probably do me a sweet ass custom axe which is totally fucking amazing for not very much at all (in terms of custom made guitars anyway, he's not going to give it away).

I could walk by the shop and see it being made day by day and not have to pay any shipping at all!

Only problem is tho, being a small operator, he doesn't have facilities for the really hardwaring laquers (cos the professional plastic stuff is lethally toxic), so if I knocked it it might chip really easily.

That of course depends how careless I'd be with my custom guitar...

I know a guy who bought a PRS, and at a gig thie rother guitarist knocked it off a stand within a week or something and chipped it. He just said "shit...ah well, accidents happen...".

I'd have killed him where he stood.

That sounds like a good idea, DeathMaster. Thats what I would do if I wanted a custom guitar.

does anyone know how ran guitars compare to shamray, full customs i mean. Because they are about the same price but shamray seems to have a lot more experience copying crap, theyll even do the vai vine inlay thing.

so soulinsane

So Soulinsane how was dealing with ran? are they easy to commuinicate with? did they keep you posted on how far your guitar was or did you just send the custom order in and didnt hear from them for 3 months and then they just sent it? just wondering how good of a business they are.....
