    As I mentioned in the Takucaster thread, I've owned 6 Eman guitars. I sold the AstroJet, but have the other five here:

    Left to right: Takucaster, Lefty Explorer for my son, Jazzy Baritone, Ziricaster, Kokocaster with Ghost piezo.

    The top is Ziricote over cherry with a leopard wood back. Extensively routed from the back as it was a very heavy beast as a blank. TVJ Classic Plus in the bridge. DeLisle Pentatone switch (like a Gibson Varitone) to give multiple tones. The neck is Birdseye maple, big and fat. Hipshot Baby Grand bridge.

    A beautiful collection. The one that looks like an Explorer -- is that strung left-handed?

    Of course I haven’t played the new one very much yet, but of the others, it’s the Ziricaster. Solid all round guitar, replaced the 64 Corvette that is slowly making its way to Arizona. the Pentatone gives a nice neck pickup sound as well as a middle setting from one pickup. Nice 50s style Fender Fatback profile on the neck. Plus it’s gorgeous to look at.

    David's work is exciting, innovative and exceptional in it's attention to detail. He has transitioned from builder to artist.

    Some really sweet guitars. What’s that bluish fingerboard made of or is it a stain? It looks super cool.

    Very nice, all of those. And it appears to be some really fine work that went into each one.
