Looks nice and understated. I just hope you won't be playing any of that subversive rock n roll music with it!(y)

Very cool. I’m curious about your impressions of the Super V as you use it more and I’m also wondering if you could elaborate on the nut and treble bleed.

Thanks! Still early days but i'm liking the Super V a lot. It feels very well made and quite 'heavy' in use, I guess some may call that 'stiff' but I prefer that rather than a really loose feeling trem. It is very smooth though and returns to pitch really well.

So the nut is compensated and it was designed by the guy who put the guitar together. He calls it the 'Funky Nut'. More info here:


Granted, I've no experience with Earvana or Buzz-Feiten but I know the Funky Nut certainly works.

So the treble bleed, when either the volume and treble bleed are up full it's out of use. However, when I turn the volume down, I can vary the amount of treble into the signal, which is great for when I'm using overdrive and need different shades of tone.

Thanks for the info! It’s a very custom guitar.

Is the variable treble bleed a design that is on the internet or did you design it?

You’re welcome :) yep it’s very custom indeed, I basically spent a year trying different strats, some really great guitars, yet there were always things that would bug me about each of them. Hoping I’ve ironed those out now.

I’m sure that will be something you’ll be able to find online. I certainly didn’t design it, I’m not smart enough haha. I discovered it through the guy who put my Strat together when he did me a Tele about 6 years ago. He used a stacked pot for the tone control on that guitar, whereas here it’s in place of the first tone control. Couldn’t live without them!
