That's how I recall it. I was often in a certain HFC member/dealer's shop when an order was denied and then again when a customer (actually it happened several times) called the dealer to ask WTF?!"

Maybe Ed Roman can be his distributor.

The move to CT killed a lot of those models. Jol was brought back to help with the move. In terms of plant and equipment he had to fit 20 pounds of shit into a ten pound bag. Some stuff didn't make

If I take a wild stab at this, I would have to say his! :lol:

Definitely his. Looks like one of the first may be a little number entitled "The Crow".

Don't know where the pricing model came from, but can't see it working in this economy.

One can only assume that there will be more economical non-signature line. Say $6,000-$10,000?

"Here's a look at the hand-made book of sketches, dimensions and ponderings that accompanies each "Signature" guitar that I build. It's a place to draw, doodle and communicate the concept that drives the build. It's a place to record dimensions and ideas. The pages step through the thought process behind my choices—the true back-story that is built into the guitar. This is one that I'm calling "The Crow", and when the instrument is finished, the book is hand-stiched, bound with a beautiful cover of original artwork and goes with the guitar."

Seems geared towards the Guitar Afficiando magazine crowd.

I don't recall any of Billy Duffy's guitars having P90s when I saw them the night before Jol did, then again, I didn't look at his Nash (and he didn't touch it at all). Billy is a Les Paul humbucker guy 95% of the time I believe. The Trons sounded great in the Falcon though!

As for the market for one of anything in that price range-I just don't see it, but whatever. I think it makes things more evident who was driving the bus in the wrong direction at Hamer though.

Nonetheless, I wish anybody great success in this field.

As I used to explain to my kids, If you always think you're too cool for the room, eventually you run out of rooms.

he probably doesn't need to "make a living", so if a few people a year pony up 16K for a guitar he's probably happy.

Hope he has fun building them and his order book soon has a waiting list. I'm only sorry I shan't be on it.

Wonder if he'll do a white finish?

For you?

No.

If you were in a signed band?

Maybe.

LOL. Of course he won't build a white for ME! He made that real clear years ago when I ordered one.

This one came after the infamous "Larry R." Standard debacle of 2002 or so - basically, a customer ordered a "refrigerator white" Standard, then blew a gasket and caused a huge uproar when he found/thought he found a couple of flyspecks in the white paint. I never saw the alleged defects, but as legend goes, he apparently created such a stink over it that they bought it back and stopped doing white finishes over mahogany/korina for a while:

Of course, since then, there have been a number of white over mahogany/korina guitars, but some people (Poe, Jaye) made their requests during the loosely-structured, oddly-reasoned blackout period.
