Blackmachine B2 is a thing of pure beauty and because they so seldom come up for sale, I just had to bring this example - currently listed on eBay UK - to your attention.
Blackmachine guitars are hand built in the UK and feature natural finishes to allow the beauty of the wood to speak for itself. They are also famed for their very thin bodies as you can see in the side-on shot above. This particular model, built in 2006, features: Honduras Rosewood neck, grain aligned with Ebony fillets, Ebony fingerboard, Ebony top, 40 year old Mahogany body, Bare Knuckle Nailbomb Pickups (Camo finish) with coil tap, Sperzel locking tuners, and an Earvana compensated graphite nut. Blackmachine are currently not taking orders for guitars as they already have a large waiting list, so if this guitar appeals to you, this could be your only chance to lay your hands on one in the immediate future.
Bidding currently over £300 at the time of writing with two days to go on the auction - I think it'll fetch a lot more than that. [EDIT - It ended up selling for £4000 more than that - the winning bid was £4,300.]
