    Hi All,

    Just wondering, I've always seen their site but I can't find much info on GMW guitars. I'm asking purely out of curiosity but it's always good to have some info on a potental future guitar.

    thanks,
    Sam

    I own two GMW guitars. I love 'em! One of them has been my main guitar for 2 years now.

    I've got a fabulous custom Les Paul that Lee Garver made for me about 8 years ago that has been one of my main guitars. Excellent workmanship, superb finishing, and the best abalone inlay work.

    Hi All,

    Was it GMW that had that fretboard fiasco? Or am I getting my custom makers confused?

    IIRC it was them, and I got to have a look at that particular neck while it was at the luthiers shop. Absolutely terrible work. I dont know all the ins and outs, but it was shocking - even worse than the photos suggested. :eek:
