Best of luck with the exciting project. How long have you been on Richard's waiting list -- and how long a wait from today will you have until it's in your hands?

when, I ordered the guitar the waiting time was about 14 months but I think it has increased to 16 months. Per Richard, I should be getting the guitar towards the end of July give or take a few days.

Hi Fred

I am curious about the Schellers. When I ordered the Schellers for mine Richard had no prior exposure to them. Once he'd seen them and fitted them he was mightily impressed. In my view they work as well as Rodgers but at a better price.

Did Richard recommend them to you or had you already decided on using them?

Either way, I know you will be happy with them.

Peter,

Richard did asked me if I wanted to upgrade to these tuners and that he was very happy with the quality.
