Brain Poe Guitar Bodies....

Can someone tell me about them ??
I've seen his name popping up here and there.
Does he have a website ??

Seems some cool folks have his bodies from time to time.
Glendale, RBrooks (builder i've seen some stuff from on TGP)
and there is a prize body in this years fundraiser.

So I'm just trying to learn more about this guy and what he does.
Thanks for your time.

Brian is awesome to deal with!

I've had two bodies from him and both guitars have turned out fantastic.

Here's my first one, a 2-piece body:



and here's how it came together (by the way, can you spot the join? )

My Kirchencaster

and here's my second one, and possibly my finest guitar:



and here's the link:

Broadcaster replica #2

I also use Brian's knobs, milled jack cups and neck pick up screws.

You can pick your own body blank, Brian gives you a close estimate of the final weight and he is one of the finest people you'll deal with.

Hope this helps. As you can probably guess, I'm a fan!

Peter

His work is terrific. He's just made a body for the TDPRI's Fundraiser/Giveaway (the 3rd or 4th one that he's donated). So, I see them every year. Excellent work. Really nicely constructed.

...That iss because Brian did his homewerk BIG TIME!.

...Rite down tew the very Nitty-Gritty zillionth of an inch detail and he did it over many years. Jes like Dale at Glendale, he has dunn much research and noes watt folks want and watt it takes tew make em happy.

...There iss noe weigh tew cornvince yew or any udder fellows. Yew jes haff ta make the contact and trust watt udders here haff said. His hardware iss sum of the bess also.

...Folks don't alwayz agree on him, Mark, Dale and/or their werk but those folks are very few and far betwixt. As well as I noe all these rascals and haff knowed them fer many years I haff onlee heard won complaint and that waz cuz this feller wanted a bran new look and knott a semi-relic.

...Good luck in yer search.

Here's a one piece pine body of his, that I bought from Glendale a few years back. It was #6!! It was "spot-on" including the neck pup springs!
This one is on the Glendale "testimonial" page, but with a black guard!

The only mistake that Brian made with the body on my Glendale is that the string holes through the body are in a straight line! On the vibey bodies he creates, they should wander!!

Beautiful image, Ron. This is when the 22 inch monitor just ain't big enough.

Makes you wanna cry than any coating at all veil the bodies from Brian. I love gazing at the images of all the work already completed, and as said before, they're not exactly authentic cause they're too perfectly made. We all know one piece bodies were not exactly the norm.

I really like my one piece alder bodies from USACG; I like just enough of an individual statement. But having Brian and Mark as hallmarks of exquisite craftsmanship make the task of imitating them to a degree possible, otherwise I'd be more lost than I am, building these gits.

Yep! That's the Clive Brown one.

I did include the link (click in the words Broadcaster replica #2). But just in case, click on this link:

http://www.photobox.co.uk/album/1112373

If you select "All" you can see all the pictures and if your choose Slide Show you'll see my comments and specification details.

Otherwise, PM me for more details.

I do have a 0.5Mb magazine article ablout the man and his work but it's too big to embed and save here.
