Hi
Just wondered if anyone was familiar with Vashenco guitars.

Lots of info in the Other Single Cuts section. Have a look.

A few people on the forum have ordered from him. Really nice guitars.

Tried to order a korina explorer from Valerij Vaschenko. Placed a deposit, waited several months and then unexpectedly got my deposit back after asking to install my pickups. Seems to me someone offered Valerij a better deal for the guitar I sent deposit for that was already in production. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO AVOID THIS BUILDER UNLESS YOU WANT TO BE IN SUCH A FRUSTRATING SITUATION.

Very nice ... except he is clearly violating Gibson copyrights. Maybe the Gibson lawyers' "cease and desist" letters don't translate well in Belarus?

Okay thanks very much for the feedback, I do like the look, finish and sound of his guitars they look really high quality and built by a master craftsman. Was going to look further and maybe place an order but a two year waiting list bothers me and the comment made about sending his deposit back bothers me more.

Maybe try other luthiers. 8Bomb Custom guitars seem like a good idea

It may be a bit more difficult to get things in and out of Belarus if it goes via EU. There is quite a few sanctions against Belarus, and in particular air traffic.

It's a 2 year waiting list so things change.

All comments aside anyone heard anything bad regarding the Vaschenco Guitars because they sound and look amazing. Who would be his competition as a like for like comparison ( excluding Gill Yaron ).
