    I made a quick search and he doesn´t appear to be in any threads..
    Anyway - he is a danish builder who has a great rep here in Denmark. He also makes his own pickups.
    Just wanted to share with you guys.
    Don´t have any of his instruments, although I had one his S-style at some point, that sounded very good.

    Of other great builders here in DK I highly recommend Rahbek. I have one his T-style equipped with a TV Jones Electroflux on the way. Should be here in a couple of weeks. Can´t wait...

    The LP looks real nice. Not too sure about the curling horn on the 2nd pic ;)

    Indeed. Johnny Morch has been known in the bass world for decades. I've played a few of his high end custom basses; they were exceptional. The upper horn scroll, as in the blue LP style pictured above, is a common design theme. His bass pickups are held in high regard as well.

    In fact, I wasn't aware that he was doing guitars. Might be an opportunity to get in early.

    That blue guitar reminds me of an Epiphone that was made during the 80's. A classmate of mine had one. The horn was very similar on that guitar.

    Very nice looking stuff!

    I swear I see Palm Trees in the figure on the Singlecut style top. :cool:

    On second glance... wouldn't it have upper fret access problems?
