Ikara

I designed the Ikara by mistake. What I mean by that is I was, originally, trying to modify one of my old designs and ended up coming up with an entirely new one instead. The Ikara walks the fine line of strange and familiar, but at its heart It’s a single-cut shape with an arm contour taken to the extreme.
While it may appear a little odd, it’s by far one of the most comfortable shapes I’ve designed. Many times, at guitar shows, people will try an Ikara and comment how surprised they are at how much the arm cut-out helps with the ergonomics.
Over time, I’ve grown to really love the Ikara and it’s one of my favourite shapes to build.
