Sorry about the fire. Hope you are able to rebuild soon. I'm interested in getting a guitar built when you get up and running again. Scott

Hey, here's to better luck this year. I really like the semi-hollow with the bottom cut away. I'm curious what you get for them. Thanx bob

So sorry for the loss of your shop but you will rebuild with the support of community. I'd not seen your guitars before but the images in your gallery show a stunning talent.

I am so sorry to hear about your fire. How sad when any instrument is ruined and worse to have the loss of tools and business. My brother is a singer/songwriter and plays guitar. When you are back up and running we will have to come see you! Not that you have the time right now, but wondering if you have done any genealogical research on your Peters family? My grandfather was a Peters. It has been suggested that the various Peters lines came from Germany. Know anything we might not know? Thanks and best wishes!!

I'm Sorry for your loss.
Good things are coming after this for sure.

Did not know your brand but after a moment watching your craftsmanship I think you are awesome. Great guitars, great taste.

God Bless You.

Hi, I go to Sweetwater all the time but I had not heard of your company almost in my back yard. Your loss of material and equipment is a terrable thing. I would like to know more about what you do and what you like to build. I prefer flat top guitars like Martin and Gibson produce, have you done anything like that in the past?

Hi Shad,

I've seen your work on Facebook and on some guitar magazines and I have to say those are some of the finest craftsmanship I've ever seen. I just wanted to tell how sorry I am about the fire. Hope everything gets better soon.

bad things happen to good people. Life throws us a curve and it seems like the end of an era. Believe me, it is not.
I heard about the fire. It really sucks and I know right now you feel like calling it quits. You can't quit! You are so lucky that you have found your true calling. When you love what you do for a living it is not work. It is daily joy that you share with people who pay you for your God given talent.
There are plenty of luthiers out there who make average guitars. Yours are NOT average Shad. They are incredible pieces of artwork that give enormous amounts of joy to those lucky enough to own one of your masterpieces. The joy you received while crafting a guitar is passed through the owner who plays it and on to the numerous people who get to listen to the music. Dom't deny the joy you have created for yourself, guitar owners and music enthusiasts.
If you were an average luthier I would not bother to get involved in what you do. You make the best damn guitars on the planet. You know it and I know it.
Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and figure out a game plan to get back to what you do best. It won't be easy but it will be well worth the effort you put forth. You can do this.
