I came across this company at the 2015 Punk Rock Bowling festival in Las Vegas. I sat down and played their "Night of the Living Dead" Nocturne for about 20 minutes and fell in love. Very well crafted instrument. I'm mostly a Gibson guy, and prefer archtop and semi-hollow guitars overall, so would probably never bother with a high-end Les Paul. This, however, with it's Mahogany body and Carved Maple top is beautiful and feels every bit as nice as any Paul I've ever used. So I was glad to add it to the family.
