Default Beware the Ides of March

I thought i would post a notice to you guys that my prices will increase on March 15th. I’ve been holding the line for 5 years while everything around me has gotten more expensive. Shipping, supplies, contract work like finishing, replacement tools etc etc. It’s what happens when you ignore the business end of this business.

I hear ya. One of my businesses relies entirely on shipping. If the oligopoly of UPS and Fedex keep raising their shipping rates it will no longer be profitable, as my products are esoteric products and can have some size and weight to them. (Nothing related to guitars).

Smile Get em while they are inexpensive...

My JKs have crushed guitars from famous makers that cost considerably more, and had way less features and tone too.

Just my take...

Cheers

Paul

Being a business owner, I certainly understand and support your decision. One has to be able to put food on the table to remain in business.

Hello.
How does one see what you can build?
Are all builds custom?

I clicked on “homepage” and also your name in the signature area (web page)

Neither worked. Thanks.

Hey RLK

Here is my brand new build. I am completely thrilled !!!

There are a couple more build threads up here at the moment. All repeat clients, too!

If you want references, John has plenty.

I have commissioned one a year now for five years in a row, and they keep getting better and BETTER

https://www.acousticguitarforum.com/...d.php?t=582062

PM me if you want...

Cheers

Paul

Smile But wait....

Going forward with Custom #6, but Change of plans.

Possible considerable travel in our future has made me reconsider the BEAUTIFUL Braz...

Looks like some wonderful Oregon Myrtle and a BEARCLAW Cedar top. John believes the BC Cedar will really compliment the Myrtle. And the four Cedar top guitars he has built me so far have been absolutely breathtakingly BOSS

I expect we will have one more build thread eventually....

Anyone on the fence about a build with John please feel free to call me, and I will gladly give you the dubious benefit of my fun experiences with him!

619-445-1189. 9-9 or so Pacific time...

Salud and tune up often

Paul
