Onyx Forge is no more

Just so you will know, the Onyx Forge Guitar business is done. I have bought many sets of Roy's bolt-neck bushing sets and tried to order more tonight and it wouldn't go through. I received an e-mail response from Cindi Bullis (I am only guessing that she is either Roy's wife, daughter or sister) informing me that Roy passed away on August 31st.

I reached out and offered my help. If there is a lot of inventory that is left in Roy's shop, I'm sure that Cindi would appreciate any help in liquidating or selling what may be piled up. You can apparently reach her at this e-mail address:

That's really sad to hear. I've done business with him for a few years, really like their bushings for bolt on necks. RIP

My #1 is a 52 AVRI Tele that Roy worked over. Really did a great job, I had the pleasure of meeting him and buying that guitar from him perhaps 7 years ago. Really a nice guy.

RIP Roy. :(

I had considered a custom guitar from him. He did a few with midi and Piezo, using some beautiful old-growth redwood. Had a fantastic conversation with him, probably in July. Don't know if he was sick, but sounded youthful and healthy. Seemed like a very nice guy. Sad stuff.
