Re: NEAL MOSER is it rare guitar?

: I own a Neal Moser. I'll get into the praises in a second. The scoop on Neal is this: Neal was part of the amazing guitar-building scene of Southern California that started in the late '70s, had its heyday in the '80s, and continues with much less fanfare today. Neal was part of the same scene that included the more well-known electric guitar builders such as Wayne Charvel and Bernie Rico. Neal was actually more closely involved with Bernie than Wayne. Neal was actually employed by BC Rich and was the man who designed the Active and Full Active electronics BC Rich was famous for. Neal eventually hooked up with another amazing luthier named Lee Garver. They started a company called GMW (makers of the Empire line of guitars which were finalists two years in a row at Harmony Central's Golden Axe Award) . Neal apparently has very little to do with building guitars these days. I go see Lee a couple times a year for tune-ups. If you or anyone is in the Southern California area and would like to have a guitar hand made for you (f**k PRS and Gibson) I can't recommend highly enough a trip to Glendora, CA. You can visit GMW at to get an peek at the Empires and at the custom repair work Lee does.

: My Moser is my pride and joy. I've been playing for about 25 years and have owned Les Pauls, Paul Reed Smiths, ESPs, Jacksons, BC Rich, etc. I have never had a better playing, better sounding instrument in my hands. My Moser has great tone and sustain when it's not plugged in! And gorgeous?! I love going into Sam Ash or Mars Music on a busy Friday or Saturday and poppin' the case and draggin' out my axe in front of all the jaded counter jockeys and watching their eyes water and their tongues wag.

: Hang on to that Moser!! There are only a few hundred in existence.
