I’m sorry you missed a wonderful opportunity. I believe you would have been welcomed graciously and would have some special memories and perhaps a new friend!bobsz wrote: ↑Thu Jan 26, 2012 3:05 pmHello all, thanks so much for your replies. I made the trip already. But failed to have time to visit any luthier. I agree that to personally visit a luthier is the best thing to do before placing an order. And to visit the luthier is not just see his guitar, this is also for sure.
