Congrats DD!!!

Gage made an truly elegant and I well imagine tonally eloquent guitar for you.

I first met Gage about 2011/2012 at John Greven's house when Gage would come over and show John the guitars he was making and had made and ask John questions he had about building/voicing/tonewoods...you name it...just the "how to's" of it all. Even back then, you could see in Gage's instruments that he had more than just great woodworking chops...he had that rare and special "it" factor of greatness in what he was doing. You could see it and you could hear it, and his couple of years apprenticing for Michael Greenfield really catalyzed and crystalized Gage's talent and his vision for his instruments.

Like everyone else...I can't wait to hear your sound clips!!!

Gage makes some of the very best sounding and most responsive guitars I've ever tried. Congrats

Smile Wow!

What a beauty! I echo Tom Bsox about the little flares on the bevel ends.

Looking forward to hearing some of it!!!

The Swannanoa Gathering sounds like a wonderful time. Wish I was there…

Cheers, all

Paul

We are pleased, very much so, that Gage has just committed to B.I.G. III this year also! After this thread and everything else I have heard, I can't wait to try his guitars!!!
