    So I've seen this one guitar hanging in a shop for quite a while. It feels different, and plays very different. It has a very odd shaped neck, and an almost too polished look. Not for everyone... But I like it.

    I am having a real tough time learning anything about the builder. I know it was a small outfit down Austin way, and that they used to build basses for Tommy Shannon. Beyond that Google won't turn up any useful info. Anyone know the story? HC has a very detailed review for a single model called the Spectrum, and the description nails it, but I want to know the story of the company, how many were built, and if any are floating around out there???

    I saw one in Houston a couple years ago. I believe the guy used to work for Jackson before he made his own guitars.
