I do not like the get Personal on this one,Allthow for Me The NATION it self in his Hole that brings out every induvidual high points! for me ,but like UJ says at times there are exceptions, but maybee the biggest One out there is some one behinde the Spotlight, and statisticly that whoed be the best salesman /woman we dont know about cose no one talks about that,maybee its GITTY Him self that makes this all posseble, or boyWonder Shane, who in good blues tradition probebly all steal it from the great unknown? Or like Denbo says ïn what field? crafftmanship? imagination?Flare & musicianschip? so you see its verry Hard to just pick ONE ! But if there is gone be a list somehow then i believe YOU are on it Jeff "BONES"Reilly! Thanks for the Post Seasons Greeeeeeettssszz To Ye ! A.D.

Yep I’m hearing you that’s all good who you like it can be more than one builder I just like K’ s style father smooth as silk on all his builds thanks for the mention UJ but I’m just a keep is simple stupid guy I’m glad my dropped soundholes turned out to be a hit . 

Comment by Dennis "Denbo" Goodinson on December 20, 2018 at 10:03am

I agree with UJ, the number of builders on here with craftsmanship, imagination, flare & innovation is endless. It's hard to pick individual builds.

Again, my memory is too short, but Andries resos are up there for me.  And John McNair's stuff, which I suppose would be among the best sounding gits.  Captain Nemoff's good stuff with the tapered necks.   Pick's unending creativity.   GS Monrow and others. 

Comment by Uncle John on December 20, 2018 at 9:12am

Bones, my memory is too short.  I see your pic of one of Korrigan's and yup he has some high art and high craft builds, especially his brand new 8 stringer.  Some of yours with the cutout sound hole with the saved cutout down below. 

The builder/maker who has given me the most pleasure is Dave Lynas.  His guitars are well up there and then add in his slides, sketches, paintings, birdhouses, garden creations, 6 shooter mule and Limber-jacks.  Yup.  Dave.

I really like Korrigan's latest Cèilidh too Jeff it's stunning. There's so many I liked this year & there's some great craftsmanship on the Nation but if I'm forced to choose it's Randy S. Bretz's Wild Cherry 3 String lap steel.
