    Found this. Not a clear match, but maybe it's a side-line

    Something interesting in his bio. He talks about apprenticing with Mike Allison in Providence. I know another builder who talked about working with Mike - Mark Campellone, who before becoming a world renowned archtop builder started off building some really nice boo-teek basses in the 70's. So a little bit of symmetry there.
