“As a lifelong player, owner and admirer of archtops, I have a great appreciation for Ed and his guitars. He has managed to combine all the things I love about fine archtops – meticulous workmanship, superb woods, fantastic tone & power, and excellent feel & playability. I absolutely love my ‘Schaefer Swingmaster‘ and consider it a lifetime guitar. Simply put, Ed’s guitars are among the best of this or any other time.” –
