WOW!!!

the 1925 model is probably the most beautiful guitar i've ever seen!

there's no pricing info on the sie, but i'd bet they're very, VERY expensive.

supposedly this guy doesn't make more than a handful a year, if that...I think he prices them in the 10-20,000 range.

I remember one from a guitar mag article back in the late '80s/early '90s he made for Keith Richards (kind of a 335 looking thing) - Keith said he was too afraid to play it, so he just hung it on the wall...

Wow, there's some amazing work and tasteful design there. I especially liked the Moderaire model. Makes me want to build something new ASAP, VERY inspiring.

+Many.
I`ve purchased some wood for my next 2 guitars, but looking at these pictures I feel a bit inadequate.

P.S. John, I looked at your site. You`re not too shabby a guitar maker youself!:)

Man, it's been a while since I've seen something new that really impresses me. There's some awesome detail work in there.

I love the art deco-ish look of the tailpiece, knobs, and pup mounting rings. Very, very nice work indeed.

Beautiful workmanship, however they look a little like furniture to me. :([/quotE

funny enough..thats exactly what i'm digging about them..
the perfect guitar for some Aristocrate's study or Library (with all that nice hand carved dark mahogany paneling and fuzzy red wallpaper)

That 2nd one clearly looks "super-vintage" - meaning, Old World. 16th/17th century Venecian, or thereabouts. Nicely done. Very impressive.

As soon as I read the title of this thread I remembered that guitar from one of Guitar World's centerfolds. It was not as ornate as these but beautiful none the less. I remeber the article made mention of Keith's support of the small company luthiers.

Joe used to do some great fret work as well as setups, many many years ago, I don;t know if he still does that. When I first started playing in the last 70's he had a space not too far from me and I got to see a whole lot of his work in person. I was way too young to appreciate it then. The guitars he builds are works of art.

I wanted to revitalize this thread for a couple of reasons: One to point out that my pulse goes up every time I see a pic of one of these guitars; Two - to get more pics and maybe have the starter of the thread update the pics - they aren't there anymore.

thanks!
