EKG guitars

Hi there!

First of all, I am new to this forum, so HI everybody!

Some time ago, I clicked on some of the banners on top of this page and I got to visit EKG custom shop´s page. I was very interested in their work, since I wanted to create an Ibanez copy under my specifications, with the options I had always missed in production models. So I tried three different times by sending them an email asking for a quote on a project I had in mind. However, I never got any response. Does anybody know if this page is still working or if they are still on business? If so, Can those who have purchased these guitars let me know what they think in terms of quality of materials, craftmanship and what not?

Many thanks!

Re: EKG guitars

Yes Eddie is still in business, he is just swamped work, so that may be the reason why he hasn't answered your e-mails.

Regards

André

Re: EKG guitars

Yeah, Eddie is a good bloke. I havent purchased anything off of him yet, but he is going to build me a custom 7-string soonish. I am just waiting for the email. He is a busy man, so it might take a while, but just look at his work, its well worth it.

Re: EKG guitars

Hello all. Still here! I have the "LGM Syndrome". What I mean is things are going much better than I expected and I have a lot of your projects to do.

I am down to the last 44 emails to reply to and I plan on getting to them soon. Every email seems to require a different reply and over half the time require details. Thanx for everyone's patience (you know who you are ) and I will catch up.
