Georg Figlhuber's Beautiful Custom Neck Semi-Hollow Guitar

 "I've built a "PR" kit. I've asked the GKW staff if they could make me a kit with an "uncut" neck, so I could shape the back of the neck by hand. And even though it was an unusual request, they really delivered. Shaping the neck was fun. I also ended up replacing the fretboard with a maple one, as I thought it would fit my copper patina finish quite well." - Georg F.
