Re: Information re.Jiri Lebeda
I have had a long builder/player relationship with Roman Zlajicek, owner/builder for Rozawood and he tells me all of the CR builders are a pretty tight-knit community, so if you can contact any one of them you should eventually be able to get in contact with Jiri.
For what it's worth, the trade deltas' are far too great for any of the small builders to actively sell their wares in the US. Roman told me my Octave he built for me was his last. He's gone on to develop a pretty good reputation in Europe for his guitars.
That's My Blah, Blah, Blah on the Matter, Anyway...
