    I had conversed with him a few times thru emails as well.Seemed like a super guy and very passionate about guitars and music.

    He will be missed.

    Thanks Guys i knew some of you would know him.He was trying to talk me into selling him this 59 ES-345 and we would joke that it would end up in Serbia even though it was not for sale.I will think of him every time i play A29952.Better put a LP in here since it is the LP section.A loved this Burst,that belongs to my buddy Vic.Thanks Mike B.

    I didn't know him personaly but I did read a lot of his posts at the other place and his knowledge and passion for vintage Gibson's was very evident. He will be missed.

    I did not know Andreja Marovic, or even communicate with him often,
    but I always found his questions to be extremely insightful. Back in 2005,
    he asked Dave Carpenter some wood related questions on the Les Paul
    Forum, that started a conversation in which Dave gave very direct and
    reveling answers about Gibson’s wood use that I still refer to today.
    I am saddened to hear of his passing. He will be missed. Condolences to
    his family.

    maybe someone is willing and able to get into contact with his family and have them to see, how sad many people feel about him passing and how much he was liked in the guitar world. Sometimes sharing just helps to seize the grief, but that is just one thought from me
