Product Description

Von K Guitars/Gibson "The Fool" SG

Hand Painted Reproduction ala Cream, Clapton, Todd Rundgren

Custom Hand Painted Reproduction of the Iconic Original.

Painstakingly Hand Drawn By Eye In Pencil Before Hand Painting With Brushes. NO AIRBRUSH HERE.......Took the better part 80-90 Hours of work.

All the colors mixed by eye. The goal was to match the original as close as possible and hand mixing is the only option for the right match....

Ok so we agree the Guitar is one of the best repros out there...feel free to compare mine to any of the small selection of others on the market. also put it up against the original. many others do a good job conceptually but it ends up as an interpretation rather than an attempt to "NAIL IT"....

ok so it looks great but how does it play and sound?

Setup and frets are paramount to a great playing and feeling guitar. we take the time!

Components:

GIbson SG Standard
Dimarzio PAF Master Pickups
CTS 500K Pots
Switchcraft 3 way Toggle
Orange Caps
Cloth Wire

We first met Gene and his wife from Von K guitars at a vintage show in Costa Mesa. CA.  We were instantly struck by a couple of things about the guitars.  First are the unique offerings.  In a world of copies, specifically relic copies, Von K guitars stand out with some different, very cool designs! Also the relic work really stood out!  We have sold every brand of relic type guitars and only a select few really get the relicing right! When we say right we mean does it look authentic or does it look like some guy in a shop did the relicing? Von K nails the relicing!  Put that all together with quality USA parts and Pickups as well as final QC and setup done by Boston Guitar's in-house luthiers and you have the absolute best value of ANY relic'd guitars on the market!

Von K Guitars: Where past and present meet in perfect harmony. Custom built AGED Guitars from the finest USA made parts sourced from some of the same suppliers as the leading relic manufacturers. Our finishes are all Nitro Lacquer from the sealer coats to the clear coats using the same finish supplier as the F custom shop. Extra detail is given to setup with emphasis on playability. The very first time you play a Von K will be like reuniting with a long lost friend or making a new one for life.
