Thanks everyone who reaches out asking about instruments. Yes, I'm still here. I'm still grinding away on some older orders and a couple more will be shipping early next year. I believe I've been in touch with everyone waiting on an older order with latest status.
If you've emailed about pricing and I haven't replied, my apologies. The wait list is again full and replicas are still not going to be a focus for me. If that changes, you will see it here.
It's been a while since the last update. A few instruments have left the shop since the last post. The last replica bass in the pipeline has been finished and sent out to Taiwan. Peter's Guitar was finished and sent out as well. I also finished a project I'd been working on for a friend on and off for many years. We revived an old Ovation Breadwinner guitar that had been basically destroyed and left for dead in an attic. There are only 4 instruments on the wait list now and they're all in progress, necks and bodies built. I've been having more discussions about taking orders again as these old ones near completion.
For the two most popular CT replicas. I'm not any more interested in those than I have been before, but have at least been talking to people who really want them. I'll likely post pricing in an FAQ and update here to try and cut back on the emails.

My internet provider has been acquired, which has forced us to make a mail address change. New email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I have not disappeared!!

Peter's guitar is in the finishing stages, will be out pretty soon. A couple 4 strings close behind that too.
The wait list is still full. This site will be updated when that changes and I open for orders again. Thanks to everyone for your interest.
