“I came to Ed Schaefer in February 2003, with an idea for a small archtop. From blocks of wood and a drawing in February to an amazing instrument in July! It is beautiful in every way. The acoustic tone is rich and very focused. There are no dead spotsanywhere on the neck, and it has a wonderfully clear and precise tone. The instrument feels great to play, it is extremely comfortable to hold and is one of the most visually beautiful instruments I have ever seen. Ed is an extraordinary luthier and a true artist!”

“What can I say about this guitar Ed built for me? I Love it – it’s perfect! In terms of craftsmanship, it is a work of art. The playability is great – truly inspiring to play. The sound is so warm and full and has a very even frequency response. It’s simply the best guitar I’ve ever played – and it’s mine!
