Back in the day, these rags kept us alive by being almost the only connection we had to the actual "guitar world". I'll be loyal for life.
Chris is a stellar human being. Oh, and he builds great playing and sounding guitars. Hey there Chris!
I've been eyeing these guitars of Ben's for a long, long time. Thanks for the detailed review! Hmmm..... ;-)
Erik is fantastic to work with.... very talented and innovative luthier, and he communicates constantly and sends pics of the build.
No words for this...... my heart breaks....
Will be going after a 4 year break...... should we schedule a TGP breakfast? We did that some years ago and it was quite fun.
What was your main guitar when you started playing? And what is your main guitar right now?
Would be interesting to see how styles and tastes...
St. Louis, MO:
Killer Vintage - stuff of legend
Eddie's Guitars - fair amount of boutique stuff.
Fazio's - before they sold the store... great...
I have my "8" moments and my "2" moments. I hover somewhere between "4" and "5" regularly, and between "5 and "6" on a good day. There was one...
For just an awesome guitar sound: Ty Tabor's Gibson L5 amp/ Strat Elite rig.
For tweaking: Adrian Belew's rig with his sig Parker Fly.
Mario does great work, congrats!!!!
The most bad-ass harmonic effect IMO. Pretty sure EVH invented it.
I'm almost sure this is my old guitar. Weight is the same. If it is, incredible guitar. Great chime. The neck indeed is big, but not baseball...
I grew up in Peoria and REO was the first concert I ever attended as a kid. Huge fan of GR's work and tone, may he R.I.P.
You and Izzy truly are innovators.... I consider myself really lucky to have had the chance to play your amazing instruments. You'll be in...
Get a Dimarzio PAF pro for the bridge and a DiMarzio Humbucker from Hell for the neck. You won't be disappointed.

Geez..... that is incredible.... the color is just the icing on the cake.
What design and execution..... no words. Truly humbled.
Second as far as props to the Forshage Orion as in the post above. Not derailing the thread at all..... but for those who love headless...
Holy Crap! That blue one on top is my old guitar! Custom ordered it direct from Lorenzo German and received it in 1998...... It's 20 years...
Speedbump: I have one of these on order, along with the VOG amp. I'm glad your initial impression is positive!
Would welcome more observations,...
Chris does incredible work. My Orion has a '58 LP theme and Timbuckers. Amazing guitar.
You will be happy!
You will not be disappointed. Chris does fantastic work.
Lots of great builders listed here. I would add Mario Martin. His strats with a Paulownia body are among the lightest and most resonant I've played.
