    Specs on Yohan G's Dot master

    Johan has described that model as a 'Vento' and AFAIK is basically the same body construction spec as the BMS and Dotmaster but with one F hole. Best to ask Johan direct if he will consider building you a 'Vento DM'.

    Specs on Yohan G's Dot master

    Thanks. Being in the UK, I was able to directly order through Johan like I was able to with the other builds since 2010. Being mainly familiar with his BM's, this one is different, (Johan described it as 'chunky' sounding) and I feel that maybe in the 'eyes and ears' of an experienced pro...

    Specs on Yohan G's Dot master

    Johan's website mentions the maple carved top and white limba back for Dotmasters. Mine seems overall the same size as his BM's, but with the carved back making for a little more depth insofar that the guitar on the strap feels more 'forward' while playing the guitar. No sloping edge on the DM...

    Back from the PRS PTC

    Congrats and doubtless now 'tailored' to you. Have always liked the PRS Whale Blue since seeing it in the 90's and would be my chosen colour were I ever to get a PRS again.

    Big Semi/Hollow Guitars - Who's Making Them?

    I rather like Mikaël Springer's McFly and would seriously consider one had I not felt basically done with guitar purchases.

    NGD - Mint 1989 PRS 24 in transparent charcoal with rare factory tremolo-up rout

    Congrats ... When I was really into PRS's during the very early nineties I had their guitar model list printed on a piece paper that showed the option of a tremolo up rout on a build. Was maybe $100 back then perhaps, although not now sure. Having one cut on my JG BM Model 1 build during 2016...

    Let’s see pics of your Eggles!

    Patrick Eggle is probably more well known on TGP in the small luthier section. Recall during the 90's, (over in the UK) that the company he had then were producing a range that was mainly similar to PRS. Although did back then have one of that era's more budget takes on the Fender Stratocaster...

    Luthiers: what's on your workbench?

    Your claim is a just one. :) Your Hurricane model looks very cool, with a classy merging of the three "G" influence yet having it's own thing going on.

    The Clapton Boost

    Used to have an early 90's Clapton Stratocaster Signature in Torino Red with the Lace Sensors which was a very versatile sounding and playable guitar. About 10 years ago I hesitated in buying a secondhand Fender Custom Shop, (Greg Fessler) EC Candy Green with lace Sensors. Upon looking back...

    Patrick James Eggle - Macon Jr

    Congrats and it looks :aok:aok ... The chosen colour reminds of of a finish that was called 'driftwood' by another luthier.

    Sherwood Green or Teal Green Metallic strat?

    On my monitor, OP's Sherwood Green does not look like other Sherwood Green's I've seen. On the 7 Up Green Clapton Strats, seem to recall it was also called Candy Green and OP's first pic does look somewhat similar.

    RIP Peter Green

    Recall reading years ago that both he and Jeremy Spencer bought two Strat's during an early USA 'tour'. Also recall Peter mentioning elsewhere that a Strat gave him another sonic potential and he was going to give it some exploration for subtle tremolo, etc., The Strat afforded opportunity in...

    NVGD...A Little Late

    It's all the better when you have good liaison/vibes concerning a purchase like this and that too via a fellow TGP member and serious guitar enthusiast as well. Congrats and enjoy your purchase. ... The guitar looks so nice and the case is pretty :cool: looking too.

    If Brazilian fretboards were cheaper and more readily available- would you prefer it over....

    Seemingly, the wood, (when tapped with a tuning fork) can 'ring'.
