    Yeah - he was banned ages ago. He was a cantankerous bastard but knew his luthiery - he had a tendency to correct people a little bit too bluntly though!

    I liked mutt. I didn't mind that he was a curmudgeonly old bastard when it came to guitars. He had his thoughts and opinions and stood by them. And he didn't tolerate idiots. Nothing wrong with that. I don't tolerate idiots either, and this place attracts them like flies.

    did you guys ever see any of his gits?

    He wouldn't post about them online and told me he just wanted to be sure boards and his business stayed separate.

    But he sent me some pics of some of the jazz boxes he'd built and OMFG!!!

    Absolutely got to be among the top tier luthiers.
    Beautiful work .... really gorgeous.
    If you know the secret codes you can get by the mastering boss on level 8.

    Agreed. I never played one, but I've seen his builds photo-documented from beginning to end, and goddamn his guitars were spectacular.

    He gave me some advice on how to choose a Luthier for my custom build and only said good things about Ben Crowe and Crimson. I did ask him to quote for building my guitar but he never got back to me - I think he was moving his workshop at the time though.

    Yeah, that thread with the LP style (?) with old fashioned floating tail piece - looked amazing & the photographic journey was excellent.

    Like I said this thread is for people who have discovered that "real world" shit aint quite what they thought it should be. Not for some one who thinks it don't matter a toss. Tell you what next time some one asks the question I'll tell you said it don't matter.
    I agree as far as what you state as this threads purpose. That said, I believe it takes a great amount of arrogance to equate "little relevance" with "Don't matter a toss". ..Just sayin.

    Call it a hunch, but I don't believe you'll be hearing from him anytime soon.

    However, I can award you a prize. That is - you've won necro-post of the week! Congrats! You can claim your prize 2 years ago.
