Question Favorite custom guitar company/builder

I was wondering what's your favorite custom guitar company/builder.
Btw, is there anyone who owns or have played Valley Arts Custom Pro?

It's got to be Tyler for me - the finishes are just amazing

When I win the lottery or somebody dies and I get some inheritance that's the first thing on the shopping list

Re: Favorite custom guitar company/builder

Valley Arts (although owned by that large corporate guitar company) is kinda nice. They do offer their Custom Pros in a 24-Fret neck. Though they don't have an HSH config, I like their look. Don't get me wrong I love the work from the builders listed above and a lot of other luthiers.

That HIVISIONS looks fairly nice, would look even cooler if it was an arch top .

I love also their look. Beautiful cherry sunburst, amber finishis with quilted or flamed maple top, just like the old Steve Lukather signature from the 80's. Extremely beautiful guitars. Now days Gibson owns Valley Arts and the prices are pretty high.

Re: Favorite custom guitar company/builder

i'd be interested in LGM myself - support small builders and get top quality that is unique and still affordable. MHO.

Check out Driskill guitars, I really like them. I played one that came through a store I was working at and loved it. If I can ever muster 3 grand I'll probably buy the one I want.
