    I have talked to Lunacy once upon a time.

    His guitars with muiracatiara tops are insane!

    I would like to play one of his guitars before making any decision, however.

    But his job seemed to be very consistent. I'm also waiting for an answer from the mate who posted about his "Tyr" guitar; the pictures from the guitars his luthier had made are awsome!

    Pérsio, of course! That's the guy I talked to.

    Lunacy's profile on Orkut presents awesome pics!

    How much did your friend pay for his guitar? And how much are you going to pay for yours?

    Thanks!
