Sorry, I don't know for sure. I think he makes only DTs.
I visited Gernot's workshop last spring together with the young Giovanni Tacchi and he confessed that he is a big fan of Daniel Friederich (who isn't). He said he would love to build a traditionally braced guitar after so many years of double top constructing. Preferably a Friederich copy. Let's wait and see, what happens.
