His build quality is great and his tone with his new Mod D body is extremely pleasing.

What did Karan do? He decided to fly to Canada to learn more! Since he was flying to Canada for the Quebec show, he tag teamed that with a guitar finish class with Michel Pellerin! Pellerin used to head the finishing department with Godin. If you've seem any of Michel's work, you know that he is a perfectionist and does an impeccable job with guitar finish. He'll spend two weeks with Michel learning and perfecting his finish technique!

Here are some pics from the Pellerin shop!
