Line 6 500 Custom GIB Double cut style
This guitar is magnificent! The quilted maple top is better than 5A! The action, tone and playability are the best I have ever seen and played and heard! Everything went right with this guitar right from the start.
It is completely sielent as far as any hum or buzz both from the Variax and Fralin Humbuckers! I have always loved Fralin pickups but these UNBUCKERS sound so sweet. Classic PAF sound.
I can go on and on with the features from this guitar but I am just going to highlight a few. I would love to keep this one. Imade 4 guitars this batch but this is the one I always pick up and look at. Not that the others are not nice too. It's just this one is just perfect! I could see Steve Howe from Yes on stage playing this one. Mater of fact. anybody knows how to get in touch with him. Point him to this page!
Here is a list of features:
Body Style: Exactly like a Gibson LP Double cut except I shapped the cutaways a little different.
Top Wood : Premium 5A Quilted Maple. Figuring covers 100 percent of the top. Rare and expensive.
Body wood: African Mahogany.
Top color :Deep Blue
Body Color: Rear is tobacco burst
Finish: Pre catalized Nitrocellulose Lacquer. A little more scratch resistand than regular Nitro but not as heavy and hard as 2 part poly. also very expensive. over 100.00 per gallon.
Hardware color Chrome.
I do not ship batteries.
Tremolo Block: Bell Brass
Tremolo Springs: Raw Vintage
Nut : Graph Tech
Strings D'Addereo .009s
Comes with hard shell case, Line 6 Power Supply. (please let me know if you don't need the power supply because I am running out of them. ) I will credit you back 50.00 if you don't need one. Does NOT come with Variax data cable. does come with 1 TRS cable, power supply and direct box, hard shell case and the finest guitar you have ever seen or played!
If I had one of those fancy names like PRS or Fender or Gibson this guitar would run in the 7k or more range!
Check out the pictures. Look at the neck and strings, how much care I took in centering things. I do the same with all my guitars but this one in perticular is so well made I even surprised myself!

There is no factory warantee for this instrument. I do stand behind my work and for one year agre to repair any issused cause by the manufacture of this guitar.
I stand behind my work and should there be any issue I will fix that and the only cost to you is shipping to me. I pay to ship back to you.
Marks Custom guitars is a small mom and pop business. There are a lot of "guitar makers" out there so my attitude is not volume but rather quality. I build each guitar as if I were going to keep it myself.
I look at each guitar as if it were mine to keep. This way you know that if you are purchasing a guitar from me, it's not something I threw together but each guitar is thought about and planned from the selecting of woods to the color . To pick up selection and switching. Each one of my guitars is a one of a kind.
