Comments

  1. That Dk8 is the guitar of my dreams, seriously

  2. Hey Cristian! Haha the DKA8 looks pretty killer – I’m undecided about the single sharkfin though.

  3. Nadav says:

    I’m not a fan of the single fin, think it would look great blank or with some other 12th feet design

    1. thesamurai says:

      Yep, totally agree there Nadav.

  4. [...] guys here with the horn scoop on both the upper and lower horns are the new Pro Series Chris Broderick Soloists, which we talked about recently. To be honest, I’m a little undecided about this body shape. [...]
