I'm not affiliated, just came across this and was not familiar with this builder until just minutes ago looking here. Not cheap, but it sure looks purdy.

Two things get me, the inlay and the fretboard. If that was braz, wonder what the price would be?

Agree it needs a nice dark Braz board.

And maybe a little less brightness in the yellow on the inlays.

But it is stunning for sure!

Man, maybe its the pic angle, but the volume knobs look too close together......or there is something else up with the knob positions.

Very lovely but I third the sentiment - at that price I'd expect nice dark Braz.

Headstock just looks awful to me. Rounded corners meeting in a peak in the middle? And yeah, the fretboard looks too light. Put some shoe polish on it. The Riggio website doesn't mention anything resembling an LP, just Fender clones. To ask 5Gs for a guitar, it's got to have some resale value and I just don't see it here. It may in fact play like a dream, but I can find tons of guitars at way less than half of what he's asking that play like a dream.
