    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

    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.

    I like Jay Turser's work a lot, but I have yet to meet him in person.

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