Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Really nice sentiment. I find myself counting my many blessings lately, and in addition to family and friends... to own a few guitars from people passionate about their craft is pretty cool.

    In the fun facts category for the Huber fans

    I found out that my Orca (first post in this thread) had a matching twin Dolphin made at the same time and was told they were the first two Hubers to use Eastern Maple tops!

    Just a fun fact given I love the history around guitars and amps and am always interested in the stories. Have never seen the twin... but would be fun to run across it.

    What a gorgeous bunch of guitars! I was hoping maybe someone would put up pix of an Orca I saw on Wilcutt's site a couple of years ago. It was a figured cedar top model and had the "full snakewood package" -- snakewood fingerboard, buttons, etc. Incredible looking!

    As it happens, this one is for sale in Fort Worth right now, so you could probably check it out in person.

    So what could be better than a blingtastic Orca? Why not a matching Dolphin!

    Just amazing!

    Mine (first post) also has a twin dolphin somewhere out in the wild... however not sure it would be readily apparent like these!
