Default Luthiers' Headstock Logo directory

How often have we seen a guitar on video and not been able to
identify the maker? Is there a directory of luthiers' headstock logos?

That website just took me off on a half-hour diversion! Now added to my favorites. Thanks for passing that on!

It's a very nice site, Jedi, and obviously a labor of love. Thanks for compiling it.

Lemme know what you're interested in and I'll send 'em your way

Just a small sample:

Funny side note: when I had Mark Angus build me #35, I LOVED his work and every guitar of his I played, prior to ordering mine... but I REALLY didn't like the headstock logo he was using at the time... so I begged him to leave the headstock blank, promising him that I would ALWAYS announce to audiences who built these two fine guitars of mine...

And I do it, everytime I play out... but you'd have a deuce of a time trying to "name that guitar" from a pic of mine!
