    This is a little tangential, but worth sharing. I got to hang out at Austin Guitar House a couple of weeks ago. Fantastic store, great staff, go there if you can. And I got to play a half dozen guitars by some of the top boutique luthiers. I won't name names, because I don't want to slight those very, very fine artisans. Liked all the guitars I played, some of them a lot. But I actually came away not tempted to shell of for any of them, because I like my Rists better. None of them could match Roman's guitars for feel and tone. Roman's guitars feel immediately like they are old friends. I wouldn't trade my Workhorse for any of the guitars I demoed, some of which were upwards of 3x as expensive.

    The wait is not easy because you know at the end of it is a killer guitar. Awesome post WV.

    That made my day, Bryant.:D:D:D

    I know the wait is the hardest part and I always hope at the end of it is a killer guitar.

    The wait is hell on me too. I can't even go to sleep without thinking of builds in the works. it's on my mind 24-7. Sometimes I even dream of builds. :shock:

    But the good news is I am gradually getting caught up. 2015 will make a lot of folks happy.

    :)

    I do hope I'm going to be one of the happy ones? The wait has been long and hopes are very high

    I'm expecting a new guitar from Roman soon. I got to visit his shop earlier this year, and he is definitely hard at work on a bunch of them. Patience will be rewarded, but it can be a long wait, I agree.

    I know what you are saying but just to be clear you aren't talking about me, right? My work horse took a while to get but it's really nice! Roman makes amazing guitars but they are hard to get. Here's a chance to one without the wait.

    Not speaking about you at all. Apologies if it came off that way.
