Just got this National, on da down side Iam next in line for MAY, but they got my money anyway, oh well gives me somphin to look foreward too!!

Chicken head knobs are a very nice touch.

GLW, your cat has shrunk again!! and i was wondering about that guitar, tell us a bit more about it, what is it like to play? how does it compare to a standard US/Jap strat? and what did you pay for it?
I wouldnt put it on the 'worse' thread, i like the colour and its very unusal.

Lee, here's the very same guitar with its full spec on the Feline Guitars website: http://felineguitars.com/specs/sacred_panther.html

It is a one-off, by the way, although I dare say Feline could build another one if a customer requested it. The story of the guitar is that someone took their 1970s Fender Strat to Jonathan at Feline guitars and asked him to build a replacement body as the guitar was much too heavy. Jonathan then inherited the old American Ash body and decided to customise it in a fashion styled after the guitar that Russ Ballard used to play, i.e. with holes through the body. This would also help cut down on body mass and therefore weight, although without losing sustain. (Holes in a lighter body could be disasterous tone-wise).

Feline converted the neck joint from a Fender 1970s 3-bolt to a 4-bolt. The Feline neck has a rosewood fingerboard with a Gibson radius to it. The frets are fatter than you'd usually find on a Strat, and the whole neck feels great to play.

It is still a heavy guitar. The Seymour Duncan pickups give a wider range of sounds than you'd normally find on a Strat. (I suppose, technically, this is a Fat Strat). I asked Jonathan to set up the guitar for non-tremolo playing as I really dislike Fender style tremolos, so he installed all 5 springs and screwed the bridge right down so that it functions effectively as a hardtail. (I had been considering getting a similar guitar built in hardtail format, but the cost would have been too much for me, so I made Jonathan an offer for this one instead. No, it didn't cost me anywhere near as much as the price quoted on the link above!)

I don't really know how to describe how it plays, but it plays great and feels so much better in my hands than any of my other guitars or most other guitars that I have tried. Let's face it, the Stratocaster design is popular because it is a bloody good design. It's ergonomic and comfortable to play.

That's a long wait, 601, but it looks a heckuva interesting. Love to know how it sounds.

Indeed. How deep is the body on that? Is it like a full acoustic or else a thinner electric-style body?

Da wait ain't too long, what 6 weeks from now ifin dey ani't BSin me!! its 2 1/4" thick has 1 pickup at the biscuit bridge and a p90 duncan at the neck, Ive,never put muh hands on one however I have heard sound clips,and it has a tru resonator sound, I will let you guys know when I finially put muh hands on it, Yea I like dem chickin heads muh self !!
