I'd buy one of palecki's guitars. It's a great guitar I'm sure. But not 9g great. I've seen custom shop les pauls with diamonds on the tail piece that only costed $8500 and that a Gibson. An ACTUAL investment type of guitar. Something with a legitamate history of worth and popularity to substatiate it's worth and growth in value over the years. Palecki is not a well known luthier nor does anyone know or care about vinnie or the guitar. It's a cool looking guitar and has great balance. But only a collecters item to maybe 10 people on the planet and they won't buy it at his price. It's a bad investment. My guitar isn't an investment, mine are meant to be played and beaten. I only use the highest quality maple and being from Indiana/Michigan border, I get the pick of the litter quality wise. Jeff can talk shit all he want about quality but he's just name dropping and doesn't understand that "authentic" has nothing to do with quality. I mean ford invented the car, does that mean it's the best? No! And it's not. I don't make vinnie v's. I make high quality functional guitars with art with artistic vision. His guitars are his guitars. Why he thinks there's a competition, I don't know. You want a vinnie Vincent guitar, buy one from him. I make a shadow v. It has nothing to do with vinnie and his guitars as a ford pick up to a chevy pick up. Make no mistake he was quoted in saying his guitar was modeled after his initials. Mine is based on actual drop shadows for a 3 dimensional effect. His are collector items. Mine are high quality performance minded instruments. it will play and sound ever bit as good as his but mine arent wall flower. Besides, my painter is one of the best artists and painters in the country. My finishes are just gonna be the best on the market. The Hive is coming together awesome! The CB monstercaster is gonna be a hot model. I got some great things in the works. My guitars won't become valuable because I've puffed my ego up, mine will because I'm making quality guitars for everyone for a fair price and I make any model. Any design, any paint scheme. You want a wallflower and a gamble, buy from vinnie. You may even get the guitar. You want something of actual worth, something meant to be played and USED where it counts, LIVE! Talk to me. I do make more than v's. Dont compare my guitars to his. There is no comparison. He's all hype, I'm all mite. It's in the price.
