    Had a trip a little ago to Sacramento and was fortunate enough to be able to meet the guys at Kauer Guitars. Doug and Rick Kauer and Steve the amazing guitar player.

    The guitars they are making are truly solid and KILLER!!! I am completely amazed and in awe of of the Daylighter model! Gibson scale, Fat Necks, and amazing fretboards. Unfortunately, I only had the camera on my phone so my pics are kinda crappy but I ripped some from Doug's site.

    I love those worm maple tops! Doug and Rick are good people. Didn't meet Steve when I went down.

    The Firebird-style guitars look fantastic, and the top wood on those Jazzmaster-style axes are quite intriguing!

    Yep, we do ;) Everything I make can be left handed by simply running my programs on the other side of the CNC.

    Will- I forgot to send you this
