Yes - unfortunately for those of us who love his guitars, it is true. From his website:

Please note: I have retired from lutherie and am no longer building instruments. I have no instruments in stock for sale, and when one of my guitars comes up for sale used, I usually don't hear about it. I am happy to answer questions about my guitars and designs, but I'm sorry, I will not build you a guitar!

Fortunately for him, he is now enjoying the time to be playing more music!
