Yeah, well I think you have point, but its like any business, there is a thing as having too much success. I said a long time ago around here that Dana may be the most knowledgable luthier around when it comes to understanding the "voicings of wood." Its hard to grow a business, maintain standards, and actually improve and make money at the same time and though this might be some "Golden Age of Luthery" for consumers, its pretty tough and takes some business savvy, which makes me admire the Bob Taylors and Jean Larrivees all the more.
