+1 for Kauer and @dougk. I haven’t had the privilege to own one of his guitars yet, but I played several at CME about a year ago and they were incredible. Really great guitars. I’ve also asked Doug some general luthier questions about other guitars I own, which he graciously took the time to answer for me, with no expectation of anything in return. Doug and his company set the standard for professionalism, courtesy and top-notch quality in the industry. I view Doug as one of the top dogs in guitar making.

Very happy for you OP! What a killer looking guitar. Enjoy it!

Thanks, brother. Totally enjoyable guitar. Makes ya wanna stroll over the the amp and turn it up ...... real loud.

I like it so much that, a couple weeks ago, I saw #350 for sale. My wife (we were not yet married when she had #351 made for me - but we are now...) said to me, "And??? What are you waiting for????"

So here is #350:


Here are #350 and #351 together:




Doug, for those of you that have not spoken with him or done business with him, is a complete gentleman. It is a total pleasure doing business with Doug; what a cool cat. Highly recommended for many reasons.

Fred, your experience with Doug has me seriously thinking about a Super Chief sporting a B5 Bigsby. Doug seems like a class act.

David,

Doug is a total gem to work with. Just a great cat - as a person, businessman, luthier/builder.

I sent Banshee #350 back to Doug for a once-over, including a PLEK job. Just got it back today. It's ON FIRE. Just a great piece. The finish on this one is gorgeous. Interestingly, the shade of red changes, based on how the light hits it. Here is how it looked today, when I took it out of it's gig bag:



I'd recommend Doug and his team to anyone for a build. Great communications. Great business protocols They deliver what they say they are going to deliver x1,000.

If you decide to order a Super Chief, I am certain @dougk will take care of you.
