    I think I remember Tomo mentioning that D'Pergo was well regarded at Berklee some time ago. So he didn't come completely out of nowhere. I'd certainly like to strum one if any show up in my area. In the mean time, I enjoy my Fender (the boutique strat builder of the '50s?) and look forward to a Chapin some day. But I would like to get in on the next wave early, buy low sell high ya'know... Cheers!

    I don't know ... but I'm going to go back and read the GP article about Los Lonely Boys & Henry's gear .. MIM strat with a '62 RI neck and Texas Special pickups through a TRRI with a tubescreamer. :)

    You've got to be impressed by the fact D'Pergo salvages logs lost underwater, has his wood expert examine core samples under a microscope, then from this information selects the wood to begin a two year drying process.

    Dang...this threads rollin'.................................................. (the girlfriend thing :roll )



    TRIODEROB...you've played one IIRC right? Maybe one of the only people who played one and wasn't floored?

    Do you really believe that all the people who play these and notice a difference are having some sort of sophomoric infatuation?

    I've never played one however that hasn't kept me from being interested in them nor do I doubt their quality according to what I've read. Also, it doesn't negate the fact that Suhr, Hamer, JG, Collings, Koll, Giffin, Stevens, Briggs, Thorn (sorry to those I may have left out, too numerous to mention) etc.etc.etc. are continually raved on and rightfully so. They've been around awhile and the interest is consistent. Gibson and Fender still get plenty of props here from time to time.


    Quality has never been a fad.

    For me it is Fano.... I'm just waiting for the right one to come along to add as my second. My JM6 is just my favorite guitar to ever play. Love it, love it, love it, love it, love it.... you get the picture....:AOK I'm hoping his can stay close to the price range they are at now so I can add a third in the next couple of years.

    We should be happy and thankful that there are so many great builders out there currently. I would wish that many more come up, so that everyone has the possibility to choose his/her dream guitar.

    I remember the situation in the 80s, where you could buy a Fender, Gibson or Ibanez when you walked into a store. None of those swept me off my feet, and when PRS came to the scene, the mere quality, playability and reliability made be buy one, although I wasn't a fan of mahogany guitars...good times today!

    I remember the situation in the 60s, where you could buy a Silvertone, a Teisco or Airline when you walked into a store. None of those swept me off my feet...just ripped up the fingers. Seriously, this is the greatest time to play electric guitar...greatest selection of guitars, amps, accessories, music...always looking forward to what's next.
