    I've known Jeff for quite some time as a sculptor... and as he's done more and more hand built guitars, they just keep getting better and better.

    I think he's really outdone himself this time...

    I love the amazing fluting at the end of the fingerboard.

    The bridge is an amazing piece of work... floating piece of ebony

    Even the back is a piece of art...

    I thought his more subtle guitars like the "Chronos Fretless" kicked gluteus maximus....

    That instrument bridges the gap and blurs the lines between an instrument and a work of art. If it sounds anything like it looks, stand back!:AOK

    I was fortunate to have watched this one come together. Jeffrey took the craft to a whole new level. Talk about inspiring! I love everything about this guitar from the wood choices to the anatomically convincing musculature to the nouveau styling. And I hear that Searcy pickup is pretty nice too.

    I prefer the fretless guitar - very classy look to it.
