    Alex is 23 and doing just phenomenal work, leaps and bounds every year (I get to see the gang every year at Montreal).

    Anyways, just wanted to share. There are just some phenomenal youngin's out there carrying the torch.

    BTW this is my absolute favorite guitar of his

    Yep. I guess he was too busy building guitars to pay his hosting bill! :rotflmao

    Looking forward to seeing these. The guy that builds Chrome Dome/Tone Philosopher amps is in his 20's as well. I always assumed wisdom comes with age but I guess some people are just ahead of the curve.
