    Re: Oval Hole Heaven at Greg Boyd’s

    NFI there is a beautiful Pomeroy F-4 at AMW here in Pittsburgh. It’s definitely a different animal than the old Gibson oval holes I’m used to playing. Those Austin luthiers really seem to know their...

    Re: New Stiver Today!

    Bill, the new Stiver looks great and probably sounds even better! I love the sideways logo on his A style headstock, I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else do that. Did you go with a Red Spruce top? Or...

    Re: New Stiver Today!

    That’s fantastic Bill! Glad your wait is finally over. Lou’s A models all seem to be great, with a little darker sound than his F’s. I’d go as far to say I’ve never heard even a mediocre one. Then...
