” Bill Nesse is an up and coming luthier headquartered in Colorado. From what I have heard based on a custom guitar he built especially for Scott Taylor, he is building very fine instruments. Expert craftsmanship is combined with a discriminating eye on details that create a solid instrument possessing great balance, wide dynamic range and excellent color . I have no doubts he provides an excellent package that a demanding player should consider as their main instrument.”
