Any reason for dropping the Driftwood name?

Beautiful. I was in communication with Andrew regarding a Driftwood a while back, and then a Poe more recently.

As far as the name goes, I think one factor can answer the question of why he switched. He is charging a lot more for the Poe's. Now, that being said, Andrew's work looks very nice, and his prices are still fairly reasonable, compared to some prices out there.

Andy is building instruments to last, it only makes sense that he would want his name on them. As for his prices, compared to other small builders out there, and I checked around quite a bit, you're not going to find another builder that gives you as much "bark" for the buck as Andy. His prices have risen as he has been building and gaining experience but for a custom built instrument he would be hard to beat. You can tell from talking to other Driftwood owners and from the pictures that he puts a lot of hard work and attention to detail into every mando he builds. It's only a matter of time before some big name picker orders one and starts playing it, then you will wish you had gotten one when they were "cheap".
