Roberts (check some of his other work) , luthier at Servette Music (Phone
+4122 733 7073) in Geneva Switzerland has done a number of extraordinary
jobs on my guitars. He is as good as can get!
I had the idea of modifying a very ordinary Flying V into something really special. I decided to modify my 1990 Flying V Double (that I had already half destroyed anyway adding a humbucker, doing a lousy paint job to cover extensive "road usage").
|The final result : will
be a retopping with AAAA Flamed Maple.

Presenting the V body and the rough maple :
Steve has cut and glued the 2 part maple top to then be applied to the V's body. The body's thickness has been reduced to accomodate the top's width (and also to reduce the ovrall body width by 7-8 mm to bring it to the regular V's bodys dimentions).
Body and maple detail :
Bare flamed maple detail. At this stage the wood is still quite rough.
