I've been talking to Stefan over at D'Pergo about building a custom guitar. You talk about a quest for perfect tone........this guy is unbelievable !!!!! He builds almost every single component of his guitars to seek the best of the best, and he mods to perfection the few things he doesn't make. He even makes screws when critical ones just aren't good enough and seeks out wood that is hundreds of years old....amazing. In talking with him about building a guitar, this guy seems to know what little nuance to tone every detail of every part makes. He also won't do my special requests if it means building a guitar that won't meet his standards. But I don't mind since I'm there for tone too. His intensity and devotion to the pursuit of ultimate tone is really something to experience. So do any of you guys and gals out there have them or have heard them?? I saw the posts by Julien Kasper and he certainly seems to know what he's talking about. (He's awesome too!!) What do the others with D'Pergo experience have to say? I understand from others out there in guitar-love land that side-by-side comparisons with other guitars is the proof-in-the-pudding. Anyone done that?? Any advice on buying from him?
