There was a Poorboy in the classifieds here for a couple weeks (did one of you guys get it?) -- it sent me down the rabbit hole and I've come pretty close to ordering one a few times since then.


Anyone have one? Anyone play one?

Yeah there's a fairly long thread that Dave Weir updates on the Gear Page and he mentioned that he did a lot of Ipe necks with no truss at the beginning but has decided to add it to all of his necks regardless of material. He said if he cut it perfectly, the Ipe would likely never move, but decided to be safe instead of sorry anyways.

Will have to put a link in here to that thread -- some really unique processes in how he "manufactures" these guitars.

Here's the thread on TGP: Weir Guitars

Here's something cool on the first page -- I don't think any builders around here could get away with it (Weir is in SoCal):

"Here is the solar kiln. The solar attic fan is wired backwards and pumps the hot air from the "attic" down around the blanks.
It runs at about 130 degrees."

Frankly, he seems like kind of a lunatic and I'm here for it.
