Paul Unkert has been my luthier for 20+ years.
A little over a year ago, I bought a NAMM Unk from Paul.
It has a nitro white blonde finish over a swamp ash body; birdseye maple neck; Duncan p/u's and a Floyd trem.
When I last saw Paul, he told me that he built 6 "pine" body Unk Std's for the Rolling Stones.
The pine was from Chuck Leavell's farm.
He was bitching about shipping costs.
Paul's a bro.

Nice curly neck on that baby. How does it play/sound?

It's a very smoothe woody sounding guitar.
Paul told me that Billy Gibbons played it and was going to take it but the Reverend took an Unk Korina V.
Billy's DNA is on my guitar.
I'm bugging Paul to make me another Unk but with a serial #'d neck.
Supposedly, only the first 200 necks have a burned in serial #.
Looks fantastic and I bet it´s a great player. Made with a keen eye on the details and a great love for the craft

Great looking Unk.
Thanks for the kind words.
Paul Unkert had a beautiful quilted mahogany body Unk Jr hanging in his shop that I was interested in.
According to Paul, it's long gone.
He still has a few necks and bodies..............I'm bugging Paul to show me some of his Korina; Ash and cool mahogany grained bodies.
I hope to have another Unk before the years up.
Thats a beautiful guitar you got there!!Congrats!!
My neighbours always listen to good music...Either they like it or not!!!!
Love the neck!! I am not far in NJ. Do you play out anywhere?
