I guess one advantage of building guitars, is you can pretty much dream up just about anything, especially when it comes to making a guitar for YOURSELF! Well, it was built for me and anyone who's visiting my shop/studio who wants to try out a KT series guitar. I did this once before, but it was and X-15 a couple years ago (VG No. 0) and this is why it's numbered "00", since it's the second demo guitar here at Virgil Guitars. What's funny is that I really don't like the color green, unless if it's a darker green, almost teal. I had a friend several years ago who had an Ibanez that was green with gold hardware and I loved it and promised myself I would get one someday, little did I know I would end up building it myself!
