Default Any experience with a J.C. Baxendale?

I have a J.C. Baxendale 00 12 fret that is an outstanding instrument (I'm not the original owner, got it on a trade). Anyone else on here own, have owned, or spent some time with on of his instruments?

There isn't a lot of info out there on them.

Thanks in advance

Mark O' Connor has recently posted a couple videos of himself playing a dread style Baxendale. That's the first time I'd heard of the maker.

There's couple. Scott worked for Gruhn for years and later bought up Mossman Guitars and moved them to Texas. J.C. is apparently based on Colorado and appears to build in small numbers.

That's Scott, who now has a shop here in Athens GA. JC is in Colorado, I believe JC is his son.

I've played a few of Scott's guitars, very nice instruments, indeed.

Never had the chance to play a JC Baxendale. I'll have to make a point of stopping by Cotton Music next time I'm up that way.
