    That is a good job. It makes me wonder...are the colorful tops of the mid-to-late 90's poised to make a comeback?

    Maybe Jack has begun a resurgence here!!

    Hey Jack -

    Beautiful guitars. I hope you haven't given up on the asymmetric headstock. Just saying....

    He still uses that with floating bridges. The symmetric one is only on fixed bridges. I assume that if you custom order he'd do it whichever way you want.

    That guitar should be called "401K" as it makes people such as my self have very bad thoughts about how to fund its purchase....

    Simply fantastic!!

    Hah! That's a great quote. Very tasteful indeed. When i see well-taken pictures of the attention to detail these talented luthiers pay, I just drool and drool. I very much look forward to the day I will be able to afford my own custom creation such as this.

    Of course - I assume so. I'm just 'voting' my taste as I haven't seen any of these asymmetrical guys for the last ~several that have come down the pike. I always thought they looked really distinctive and nice.

    Yeah - right!!! My palatial estate is a condo run by a trio of cats that let me stay and produce my wares, all so I can buy them copious amounts of sardines and tuna snacks!


    You and I, both!!!
