It would be nice, if your model range contain double truss rod system basses, as well as set\thru necks and wider\shorter stringspacing.
Why won't you make such instruments. I think it would be very interesting.


P.s. Sorry for myy english =)

If by double truss-rod you mean two independent rods. We ruled them out due to the extra weight, need for a thicker neck and (limited) experience with other brands using dual rods not working very well.

Set and through necks were ruled out for two reasons. 1. if the neck ever gets damaged you can easily replace a bolt-on neck. 2. we prefer different finishes for the neck and body.

Different string spacings are tough with Fanned-frets because it changes the scale length. To do it right we would need to customize the frets to match the bridge spacing. This is doable but would force us to charge a lot more on all the instruments because of time spent making specialty tooling, dealing with more complex inventory etc.
