I have a few lying around somewhere, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post them though.
Why not? I think everybody knows what it's going to look like anyhow? It's just nice to see pics.
I can't confirm this myself or tell you where I heard it (because it was years ago and I honestly don't remember), but what I remember hearing was that Doug is an aeronautical engineer or somesuch by day. Again, take with a big grain of salt.
I've heard he solves crimes and brings down corrupt governments by night.
Has anyone seen Doug and Elon Musk in the same room at the same time before?
I've heard he was an engineer of some type as well.
No, Doug was a guitar repair guy for many years before he started building for himself.
He worked on basses a lot which is where he got the idea to use more exotic woods and stiffer neck woods for his guitars.
I stand corrected.
He's the hero SSO deserves, but not the one it needs right now; so we'll joke about him. Because he can take it, because he's not a luthier. He's a craftsman, an artisan; a d̶a̶r̶k̶ ̶k̶n̶i̶g̶h̶t̶ marketing machine.
I feel like he's the opposite of a marketing machine, and his customers did the work for him?
He did next to no marketing apart from guitar shows. The best marketing move he did was not doing any since that only added to the aura of them. It was right time, right guitar and the right customers/players until the hype took off and drove them to be flipped.
Really proud of that one huh?
That’s weird, Jonathan responds nearly immediately every time I’ve ever messaged him on Facebook.
