    I love his design aesthetic and attention to details. It's a breath of fresh air to see this type of work. His site says he has about a half dozen new ones coming up. Can't wait!

    This is a very cool fretless, although I am kind of partial to the Kronos Fretless on his website. The Kronos is just beautiful so it is hard to beat in my eyes. I wouldn't expect anything less from him though. He does some amazing work. Then again, so do you David!

    I like the simplicity w/ class. Reminds me a little of a Jersey Girl guitar.

    looks great. deal breakers for me are some of the raw materials (basswood, indian rosewood fingerboard). especially with a base price of 4.4gs.

    Very nice guitars, but the cost makes them more of an art statement than a players instrument, though I have no doubt in their excentric functionality!

    I've actually known Jeff for a while now as a sculptor.... and we started talking guitars after that.

    This one shocks me.... because of the color... and hardware.... definitely something new for him! He normally worships cherry and walnut, and loves the more organic looking guitars (some even have hand carved ebony bridges).

    I remember the day he first showed me the Dragon Wing.... I damn near fell out of my chair!!!
