Bob Rusch built a beautiful wolf-hybrid for me recently. Superb craftsmanship. Fast spanky neck. Heavy as hell. Took the bottom horn and doubled it. Chambered top wing for weight Neck thru. Obel, Waldo buffer. Lollars pickups/taps. etc etc.

+1 on Rob's craftsmanship. He built me this Eagle last year. It was a long two year build that I thought was never going to be completed, but he finished.

Really nice!...very "Cripe"ish

It took a little over a year. Longer than estimated...but in the end, it was worth the wait. Had some electrical issues that were easily fixed, but the build overall was excellent and I'm very happy it.

LOL, mine had an electrical issue also that I easily fixed.
