Has anyone every played a guitar built by Lawrence Nyberg?  Someone passed along his website address since he lives on the next island over (in Canada) and our houses face each other across the Lambert Channel.  No, I don't live there at present but my parents are living on Denman Island and I am hoping to move there in about 5 or 6 years from now.  I'm going to try and get there this summer and will go over and introduce myself to him.  I understand that he worked for Larrivee for a couple of years before setting up his own shop.

Does anyone know anything about him or his guitars?  His website address is: http://www.guitarmaker.ca/

Thanks

I'll bet those Gypsy style guitars sound great. Seems he has also settled the cedar/spruce debate with the "Harlequin"

Yeah, the Harlequin looks "interesting".  Hopefully he'll have one there when I go and give it a try.  It's pretty cool that he has soundclips on his site.  He's building some interesting instruments that I'd love to try out.  For an independent luthier, his prices are pretty low compared to others.  I'd like to play a few of his guitars to see what they sound and feel like.  From his background, I'd bet they sound pretty sweet!

Nice looking guitars and reasonable prices. The "peregrine" looks an awful lot like an L. The headstock shape is familiar too...
