Apparently they have terrible humidity/cracking problems because the wood he uses is really dry. Do a search for him on google, there's a page all about it.

 

THANK YOU!!!!!!!

I was just about to bid on a tele style body and neck on ebay, thought it'd be cool for something different. But I did the search and the first thing that came up was a warning page about his guitars. Apparently they are crap, poor fretwork, the wood cracks like crazy and falls apart, etc., etc.

Think I'll be taking a pass on that!

all i can tell you is that a strat neck that I bought from him on ebay was nowhere near strat pocket sized (they told me it would fit) and it warped sideways like crazy.. so there goes 99$ down the drain. this is an electric neck btw so the problems are not only w/ his acoustics!

i pulled the trigger on one of his sg style 12 strings....then started thinking it may not have been such a good idea, (got a real bad feeling in my gut) then came the horror stories, all i can say is i was soooo happy when i got out bid in the last 10 min. of the auction
