    Let me just say this guitar is sick!! I bought this guitar first day it came out and it was delivered to my house in three days. The packaging on point and the case for the guitar was beautiful black and quality construction all around. The guitar was in mint condition and came set up perfect out the box. I checked intonation was perfect and on point. This thing could have been named the Swiss army knife because it does it all. My favorite feature is the roller knobs for the pickups that allow you to take them from humbuckers down to single coils and everything in-between. The other thing is the unique body style. It’s not only a tonal monster it’s a visual monster as well. It looks like something out of this world. The neck is super comfortable and I can bend notes so incredibly easily. It feels so smooth throughout when playing. This guitar pick ups have a unique sound in a goooood way. I have owned so many guitars throughout the years Ibanez LP fenders and this this is the guitar does all these guitars and it’s own thing as well. The clarity and crunch is just unmatched. I couldn’t find a flaw in this guitar it’s definitely my number one now. I have played guitar and bought guitars for over 20 years and this thing is a ripper. It’s going to be one of those sought after guitars for years to come. No doubt. Big thanks to the guys at does it doom for making this one happen! Man they nailed it, hit it out the park for me beyond happy with mine!

    Absolutely flawless guitar. Looks stunning, sounds even better, and plays like glass! After tuning it up the setup was spot on. Action is crazy low and super smooth. All the tonal options you can get with this thing is ridiculous. I really dig the trem system especially with the roller bridge, great idea. 10/10 no complaints and it is my new most favoritest thing in the world. Fucking stoked on this guitar!

    Pretty kick ass guitar! The neck is pretty thin but comfortable. Very well balanced and the setup out of the box was great. No sharp fret ends or high frets. Can confirm that a Mastery or Fender AVRI Vibrato will fit the stock vibrato route. I picked it up today from FedEx and quickly set it up for C Standard. I did end up rewiring it as it sounded dark to my ears. I opened it up and found two 500K pots and a 2a103j Mylar capacitor that translates to 0.01uf resistance. I swapped the pots out for CTS 500k pots with a paper in oil Vitamin Q 0.47uf as that’s better suited for humbuckers. Swapped the output jack with a switch craft as well. Once I made this change, it really brought the guitar to life. Definitely would buy one of these again.

    First of all, this guitar is awesome. Came perfectly setup. Love all the tonal possibilities. I’ve been playing it non stop.

    Two suggestions (which are just my personal preferences) for the next run:
    1) I would love to see a 3 way toggle switch in place of the slider switches for the pickups. I have one of these on my Kurt Cobain Jaguar, they even have an extra hole that would fit the choke switch.

    2) A push-pull pot (or mini-switch for phase)

    I absolutely love what you’ve done with the coil splitting. Being able to dial it in is so enabling as opposed to just a two way switch.

    I’m going to be playing this guitar for a very long time. Thanks again.

    I got one of the first runs earlier this year, but I’m just now getting around to reviewing the guitar because I barely played it for the first couple of months. Why? Because I’m an idiot. First, let me say that the Switchblade was beautiful right out of the box. It looks better in person than it does in the pics, and the finish was flawless. Everyone who’s seen it loves the thing. However, Something sounded off with the low notes and there was a light buzzing sound I couldn’t seem to locate, which caused me to keep putting it down and going back to my Warlord. I thought the lighter gauge (than I’m used to) strings were throwing me off and I needed to adjust the setup, but I just never got around to doing it. Fast forward to two weeks ago: I decided to set up the guitar in C standard and found the issue. I left the damn plastic on the bridge pickup and didn’t notice it! What an absolute moron. As soon as I got that plastic off, everything came to life and the buzzing was gone. So, now I have the Switchblade setup with 12-56 strings in C standard, and it’s awesome. This thing is really fun to play and the neck is fast. I’m really digging the thumbwheels. I hardly ever use a guitar with both pickups on, but this one kills that way! I can get some really awesome tones that I can’t get on anything else. It doesn’t sound like my Warlord nor does it sound like my SG with P90s, which is a good thing. It has its own unique sound, feel, (look,) and versatility, which makes it a guitar that simply must stay in the collection because nothing else can replace those aspects. Also, I love the tremolo bar, especially since I don’t have any other guitars with one (anymore), and this one works quite well (so far, I’ve had no tuning issues from using it). That makes this guitar more versatile and interesting, in my opinion, meaning I have just as much fun messing around with cleaner settings and modulation effects as I do with heavy fuzz. Woodrite is killing it. This guitar looks, feels, and plays like a quality instrument. Nothing about it seems cheap or ill-conceived. I’ve been playing the Switchblade almost exclusively since I removed the plastic and did a setup for the lower tuning. I’m glad I was able to snag one before they sold out, and I would definitely recommend this guitar to anyone, not just doom players.
