I haven't heard from anyone on this forum about Lieber Guitars. I received my Lieber Wolf Graphite this summer and love it.

The graphite neck really projects well and holds a tune for very long periods. The over-all sound has that Jerry twange and pop during leads and chords come out like an orchestra. I adjusted the string heights myself but it comes set-up just fine.
The locking tuners make stringing far easier.Thomas Lieber is great to deal with and even fixed a minor problem for me gratis with no hassle.

My only quibble with the Wolf is that there is no option for a 24 fret graphite neck, but he will build a Wolf using his 24 fret wood neck that comes standard on the American Beauty model (aka Tiger).

If anyone has a Lieber guitar please share your thoughts here, I'd like to hear your comments.

You bet, I have owned a Lieber American Beauty for a few years. Love everything about it. Thomas does beautiful work and is a great guy. Am pairing the Beauty with the incredible SMS Garcia-modded Pre, pushing it all along with a MacIntosh MC250 into a vintage JBL K120 in a beefy Soundscaper cab. All highly recommended. The tone is pretty much spot-on, now as for the fingers and muscle memory, that comes and goes, but the rig is fantastic.
