I often wonder about threads where things get so obscure, you could just make stuff up and no one would notice.  ohmy  

You mean like luthier Sheldon Crabknuckle, from Punkydoodle Corners? So obscure, his guitars so rare and refined no one has ever seen or played one. Nobody is worthy or ever will be.

A Mortgage anyone

Seriously.  What's it cost for one his guitars?  $25k?  Jeff Traugott, $26500!?  I doubt any of these instruments sound $24000 "better" than any Larrivee I've owned.

I used to live next door to Sheldon. Good fellow, he is.

LOL,not saying that a hack guitar player such as myself could ever afford one,or that I would even buy one if I could....just saying that he does excellent work... and his guitars sound very,very good...they start at $30,000.00 by the way and he has a two year waiting list  ohmy

 BTW , I've always been a huge fan of your playing Denis....I imagine that you could make a cigar box strung with rubber bands sound good...so no need for you to ever spend $30K on a guitar  bigrin

Thanks.  I know I'm not exactly Tommy E or anything but it's always nice to hear someone likes what I'm doing.  

I'm pretty happy with the guitars I've got right now.  I would love to try a $30000 guitar but who knows, after that I might want a $30000 guitar!

Lots of great builders working today,but one luthier that's at the top of his game is Ervin Somogyi from California.


I hear he gets his materials from JCL.
