Updated...13 March 2018.

We are now up to 68 commissioned guitars which is fantastic reflection of the market.... As much as I am interested in maintaining this thread, I will cease to continue to update it beyond the end of this month (one quarter into 2018).

Unbelievably, there are only 3-weeks remaining in 2017 (How did that happen? ). I suspect that a number of fellow AGFers have some custom guitar(s) commissions in the queue for quite some time that we may be lucky enough to see realized here in the AGF Custom Shop throughout next year.

What type of guitar(s) are you expecting and from which luthier(s) will we be seeing here in 2018?

I will added a summary list that I will update from time to time based on responses in this initial post.

Thanks, Dennis. She's a beauty, isn't she? Mark should make this a standard configuration and call them the "Greta Lair".

I can't wait to play her.

I was wondering about that too. No updates in his threads since one month, no new pics coming up on his flickr account.
