What a beautiful guitar. After unpacking it, I did a quick tune up and it was ready to go - the setup was perfect. Spent several hours playing it and basically just having fun with this excellent guitar. The Warmoth neck is fantastic. I spent a lot of time researching Strats to find the right one for my collection, and now feel very lucky to have found Haywire Guitars and Rick Mariner. The finish on the body is stunning, and the workmanship on every part of the guitar is outstanding. Just as important for me is the customer service. I spent quite a bit of time talking to Rick via phone on two separate occasions, both about the guitar I was interested in and generally chatting about guitars. I felt as though we had been friends for years. He answered all of my questions and offered great information about guitar specifics. Would highly recommend Haywire Custom Guitars to anyone looking for the highest quality in a guitar - 100%.By Bill Rosenberry on May 19, 2010 at 07:51 AM
Haywire is just fantastic! I was treated very well by Haywire and really enjoyed my second experience. Rick is a pleasure to work with considering my "fussiness". He is a gentleman. Rick Mariner always was and continues to be very easily accessible to answer any questions I have had during the building process and after I had received it. He went out of his way to listen to my wants, and helped make this guitar is a totally unique piece of art. I have one more thing to say, "Thank you Rick, for a great experience and a great guitar. If you're in the market for a new electric guitar, you cannot do any better than going to Haywire Custom Guitars. I`ve been playing for many years and I can honestly say that my whole experience in purchasing this custom Strat from RICK MARINER & HAYWIRE CUSTOM GUITARS have been a great.
