Holy crap! So what are the specs? Wood types, pickups, scale length, etc. Gimme all the guitar geek stuff. What did it cost if you don't mind my asking. If you don't feel comfortable saying, that's cool. If you just want to tell me privately email me at grolp@hotmail.com I am very interested in getting a Piggy replica myself.

Fantastic, now you can play Voivod cover much better!!!

I'm curious too to know how much you paid for it, and if you play somewhere in the northern area of Milan please let me know, I'd like to see the killing-guitar in action.

That is very nice. I was going to get a body blank and neck from Warmoth and try to build my own but laziness, lack of woodworking skills, no garage/workshop and no money prevented me from doing it.

If you could post the price and specs you would make us all very happy.

here you are....

Ok ...I needed a new guitar (a real one, not a cheap trick like my old b.c. rich ehehehe...) so I decided, instead to buy a regular one, to get for almost the same price a very personal and unique custom instrument. So I did contact Mauro on his web site he's a very cool person.... I always loved the work he did for both
Piggy and Blacky. His works are a pieces of art. And it was exactly what I was looking for: something typical Voivod shape and groove on it in order to make my bad experimental thrash with my band (http://www.myspace.com/n3onmetal)

ok, let's go with some specs....So, it's a bolt-on neck model based on the famous Piggy's flying-v body.It has a 22 fret fingerboard made in maple but clear (like stratocaster) not dark as in the Piggy model. Maple is very warm and is the best wood in my opinion. Pickup on the bridge position is a dimarzio x-2n I think it sound amazing,and more powerful than the Distortion. The one on the neck position is also a dimarzio humbucker. As for the bridge I am not a big fan of mobile bridge systems (like Floyd Rose, ecc...) and I wanted something quite old-fashioned and Mauro suuggested me this Kahler vibrato that I think it's amazing. There's also only one volume under the bridge pickup and a strat style toggle sitch so I can have five different sounds,instead of only three
(another great suggestion by mauro).If you have other questions ask me without problems

Speaking with Blacky he then told me he wanted to release with Mauro a Voivod
serie, bass and guitar based on this design called WWIII, that of course
related to one of the Voivod song "build your weapon", but after I don't
know what happened...


As for the price don't think that a custom model would bee too expensive!
Now I don't know what are the prices of guitars in your country. Also prices of a custom model can be several and will depend much on the components one can choose. But I can say that I paid for that one less than for a Gibson SG. But now I have an equal great quality guitar and most important is unique.

I have to ask Mauro about this. The picture has been taken in his "office" just before leaving it...

I love guitar geek-speak...even if I don't understand what the hell it all means.

Congrats on your beautiful bouncing guitar.

Love is... when your guitarist partner names their favourite sound on their multi-effect box after you.

My favourite patch on my guitar-rack-thing (an ebow-but-better sound) is named after my ex-ex-ex-birds phone number, although she hasn't lived where the phone number connects you to since 1993. She was that fuckin' good!

ah...

See? I know how you guitar gods work, after I was married to one for 15 years

I've no idea whether he's changed the name of his favourite settings, or even his actual favourite settings, since we split up.

Old topic...or just that all topics seem to be old.

You know guys, other then for the look of it, you can get similar bass tone just using other bass. It's all in the playing, nothing more.
