Jon Kammerer has made fine guitars, one at a time, in his shop in Iowa since 1999. His guitar are built in very low numbers but the Iris Special is extra rare, with only 2 made of this model – the result of a joint project with GuitarX that fell apart after the 2nd one. Completely hand-made and the difference in a hand-made guitar will strike you as soon as you pick it up. Absolutely incredible attention to detail and Jon’s construction techniques are very innovative, yielding a very comfortable and tunefull guitar. Super thin body – but a nice thick piece of flamed maple on top – Neck is superior to most anything out there and no scarf joints or finger joints here – one piece my man. If you’re unfamiliar with this maker, check out on Facebook, or at his site when it’s up: http://www.jonkammererguitars.com/. A current, similar model, without the Ltd. Ed. factor and the inlay, retails for $3250, discounted to $2250. If you want one of the best hand made guitars I’ve played in a long, long time, buy this one, for just $1399.
