Hey now, folks...I STRONGLY encourage you to check out www.customguitars.com
to see some amazing stringed instruments built by Master Luthier, S.B. MacDonald. He's currently working on a killer electric for myself, but he's made some FANTASTIC acoustics, ukeleles and other sick stringed instruments. He was the only luthier I contacted (out of 40) who REALLY had the same idea of what CUSTOM means. Everyone else I spoke with was like, "Sure, I'll make you a guitar - $2500 and gimme about 5 months." Scott (S.B.) was more like, "Well, I'd like to watch you play, see how a guitar rests on your body, really check out your hands, sit down and figure out just what kind of tones you're after...", etc. He knew that custom didn't mean just another "one of a kind" guitar, rather it'd be one built FOR me. He uses custom made pickups by the Pickup MAN, Lindy Fralin, too - as well as others. I'm not dissin' the artist who started this post - just wanted to share my little piece of paradise, since this guy is a killer artist, too. Enjoy! Happy Holidays to all!!
