I can't afford the JML project, many others can't either. #But we can pretend.
I'm wondering which builder(s) I'd nominate, though not necessarily F5's, or in the "official" price bracket. #My personal curiosity would be towards two groups of builders; up & comers, and established but little talked about builders. In the first group "our own" Chris Baird and Keith Newell come to mind but they already get considerable air time (and they're both darn good photographers too.) Mr. HoGo's first couple mandolins were scrumptious looking and Mr. Gary Vessel would be interesting to put a spotlight on too. #(Could we bear another Brunkella?)
Along the established builders, I'd really like to see a Paul Newson and a Bruce Taggart; mostly because I have older examples of both.
Actually, a Newson, Taggart, Vessel, and Brunkella would be an interesting bunch because they're all violin builders.
