I don’t think it’s petty @Soap Distant but of course I had better watch my mouth incase my own site and business becomes the focus of scrutiny. I agree about PE, his work is absolutely stunning and his pricing is very fair. Do Sims do their own models? I’m sure we could list a bunch of luthiers between us who could have done these guitars but again, Sims is probably the only place that has the means to do it to a set lead in time.

I know of at least one other guitar company in the UK that has the capacity to make them and was asked, but they declined.
I’d imagine the initial influx of shop models would be too much for nearly any sole luthier to handle. Outside of Sims and Crimson I suppose you’re getting into other luthiers who don’t have the means to take on such work.
