My first guitar was an '83 Artist. Loved that guitar. This style has gone through a few iterations. It was originally inspired by the Ibanez 2672 and a Musician. While designed as a 70's Bobby guitar I have to say I really like the feel of it and might try a 25 1/2" version. My Wolf weighs over 10 lbs, my "Bella's" are closer to 8-9 lbs. These, thanks to the thin Korina body, are more like 7lbs which is like playing an air guitarSearing75 wrote:That is looking very nice! My first real guitar was an old ‘78 Ibanez Artist with the tree of life on the fret board. I now have a Wolf copy, and a Bolt. This guitar you are building is a mix of all three. It’s ideal.
