Affordable reissues of niche guitars
I have long hoped to provide affordable reissues of these vintage guitars for players. The Vox Aristocrat (and it's brothers; The Ultrasonic, Viper, and Cheetah) are incredibly rare, and I want to put this classic design into the hands of more players.
These guitars will be hand carved by me and put together in my wood shop. The pickups will be custom wound and put into homemade pickup rings.The inlay will be home-made and painstakingly reproduced to the specifications of the originals. A Bigsby vibrato will also be included on every model.These guitars will be available in either Wine Red, Sunburst, or any other custom finishes that the customer desires.
All funds will go towards one or two prototypes (including the special tools and wood that will go into them), searching for retailers, and everything that I need to get this guitar into mass production and over to eager players.
Thank you very much for any support I receive and I am deeply touched by your donations. Thank you!
Here are some photos of two of my completed and in progress works.

I'ts been brought to my attention recently that in the video it states that $400 will get you a full guitar. This is a minor discrepancy that I forgot to edit out. $1000 will get you a full guitar. If you are still interested in a guitar and dont have $1000, send me a message and we will work something out. Thank you
