I've known Doc for awhile now, and I have nothing but high praises for him. I've hung around the shop on and off for 2 years now, and he's one of the nicest people I have ever met. Fantastic article.

Fantastic article. Doc has been in this business forever and the recognition is well deserved. Best luthier around hands down.
