    I'm not sure if this is a repeat...
    What are some relatively new or unknown luthiers you think the rest of the TB community should know about ?
    I'll start with Mark Eshenbaugh. Can't beat the playability IMO.
    Discuss amongst yourselves

  8. There's also a lot of talk about Chris Stambaugh. I haven't heard ANYTHING but praise for his products. Looks like very high craftsmanship.

    Ah yes, Greg Yancey. That man could make his mark in the luthiers world if he wanted to IMO.
