    Mark did some work on one of my guitars a year ago and introduced me to his hand made resonator guitars.
    I was floored. These are some beautiful sounding works of art.
    Check out Sonny Landreth & Arlen Roth playing Mark's guitars.

    Seems like the market's glutted with Asian-made copies of the pre-war classic designs - Great to see someone here in North American pushing the envelope with new ideas!

    And if Johnny & Sonny like 'em, they must be good.. They sure sound good!

    He's using Jason Lollar's p-ups, too! The Lollar P-90 in my National Resolectric is the perfect compliment to the saddle transducer.

    Thanks for the link!!

    Wow - that Terraplane is beautiful. Intrigued by the Terraplane amp, too.

    I just checked out the Terraplane site and I am in love with the custom cutaway with Firebird headstock that was built for Johnny Winter. Any idea what something like that costs?
