Anyone in the greater LA area have a GVCG that I could check out?

    I'm seriously considering ordering one (or two) of Jonathan's guitars and I'd love to see one in person first, if possible.

    I'd be up for driving to Santa Barbara or Orange County, or inland a bit. Thanks!!!

    Jonathan is moving his shop to Topanga Canyon starting July
    1st. My 2 Teles will be the 1st guitars out of his new shop. The
    best way to reach him is through this link as phone contact is
    sporadic at best for the next few days. Tell him Cliff sent you.

    No one does it better, not even close. More Fender artists have
    him building their guitars for them. (enough said)

    Topanga Canyon is one of three routes that I take to work on a regular basis! I think that a GVCG is definitely in my future... :D

    Thanks Cliff!!!

    For Fender, he is the only way to go if you really want a vintage
    Fender w/o the vintage price tag. You will have to see it to
    believe it, but when you do be prepared because I bet you can't
    buy just one. His Teles, side by side with the real deals, can't be
    told apart by most experts, and are sonically far superior on a
    consistent basis. This is where the men are separated from the
    boys. These are not glossy vibeless Tele and Strat copies with
    pretty tops and shiny new hardware gimmicks. These are real
    feeling Teles and Strats oozing with tone vibe and mojo. The more
    dings the better. These instruments are inspirational.

    Anybody care to know what I think about Jonathans work?????

    No need to worry, Jonathan has enough grime and grit stored
    to keep us well relic'd for at least a few lifetimes.
