“The Invader”


The Invader – Nikolo Kotzev’s second custom bolt-on guitar. This is how he describes the reason behind its creation.

“The sheer joy of owning a guitar that was hand-crafted and designed especially for you is indescribable (The Wiseman). But, can you imagine how it would feel to own two such guitars (The Invader)?”

N. Kotzev
