    Default NGD(s): Sully Galaxy V and Elita

    Just received my Sully Elita (6 of 5) last night and the Sully Galaxy V showed up about a month ago. Figured I should post them up with my Sully 624




    The Elita is a set-neck spanish cedar body and neck with an ebony fretboard. SD black winter pickups and a Schaller hannes bridge.

    The Galaxy V is a neck-thru black limba body/neck, cocobolo fretboard and an old growth redwood top I got out of Oregon. It has a BLKTRI Trove pickup an a Hannes bridge.

    Wow, some serious lumber in that V. Also, the natural S shaped one is killer. What's the wood for the neck>
    Great stuff there!

    S-shaped is a 624 with a Mahogany body/Flame maple top and Mahogany/Maple neck. This may surprise some but the 624 is the heaviest of the three guitars in that photo. It weights in around 9lbs so it's like a Les Paul in a super-strat shape.

    Sweet! Is that a pale moon ebony board on the 624?
    I feel my soul go cold... only the dead are smiling.

    Sadly, the OG version of the Elita is no longer available but I agree an Elita 2.0 (the updated version available in the conspiracy series) with a floyd would be cool.

    You are correct that is a pale moon ebony fretboard.

    It's pretty awesome. All of those guitars are awesome. Love the Hannes bridge, too.

    Sully has been great to work with and he builds amazing guitars. He was the only reputable builder that I could find four years ago that would build me a guitar with a Hannes. I really wanted to try a guitar with one and since then I have gotten Jackson and ESP to build V's with Hannes bridges. I have to say Sully's craftsmanship is on the same level as the Japanese ESP custom shop or a Masterbuilt Jackson.

    Nice. I remember your other guitars with the Hannes bridge, too.
