I'm a <<gasp>> guitar player, but believe this is the best place to ask this question... Does anyone out there have any first hand experiences and observations to make regarding DP custom guitars?. I know he's noted for his basses. I've made my decision and sent Dave a deposit in July for a guitar based on a bit of research, but mostly based on intuition, blind trust, pricing and prayer. Dave couldn't supply me with local references (NY metro area) for any customers, so I'm trauling for feedback. I should say that he has been quite responsive to my questions, and I'm feeling positive about his attitude toward his craft as evidenced by those emails and postings here.
