1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    I really like the way Chafin's look; very well-conceived and executed from what I can see. It's too bad he doesn't make any trem models.

    He'll do whatever you want. The guitars are pretty much on a per order basis, and I know one person who has a trem model coming very soon.

    Hey, isn't that a Koll headstock? I guess they will do anything.

    Seriously, that's gonna be a great guitar, I've got a friend who has one and I get a chance to play it every now and then... very cool and easy to play.
