 As a proud Hawaiian, what Vinnie carved on my guitar reminds me & connects me to my Hawaiian heritage. As you check out the picture of my guitar (The Vosscaster), you can see why I was so blown away when Vinnie presented me with my completed master piece. Vinnie's carvings are unbelievably beautiful.  Thanks again Vinnie.

I received my Keith Richards tribute Strat as a gift.  It is hanging in a display case proudly and prominently in my home. Thank you for 'the one you grab if your house is ever on fire."

  Hey Vinnie!
Always a pleasure working with you. The "Devil Dogs" strat we put together for JY is getting a lot of use these days. We will be seeing you soon on the Styx/Foreigner/Don Felder tour.
Take Care
