Chris Forshage is one of the great Luthiers of this century. His guitars are so full of life and the attention to detail is the best. this AAAAA quilted maple 335 is no exception. perfect 59 neck, super 3d quilted top all done in nitro, killer mahogany back, brazilian rosewood. and my favorite Throbak pick ups ( best PAF out there). this guitar sings , the clean tones are breath taking and she wails when driven. I cant say enough about this guitar.
