" Just love my LennonCaster guitar!"
"My husband absolutely loves his custom guitar !!! Awesome work!! Thank you So much Vinnie
"This is just awesome. I really love this AXE! Look forward to putting this one on display!"
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."
"Vinnie captured all of my imagination in this guitar. That is really the miracle."

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.
These guitars are incredible Vinnie. I love this Bones Guitar!
Thanks for sharing.
