A couple years ago, when I made my first "V-Man" guitar for an old bandmate from the 80's, I never thought I would be making yet another one for local guitar great Todd Grubbs. Todd had told me the other night, while picking up "Skullboy", that he had always wanted a V-shaped guitar, but never pulled the trigger until now. This guitar will be going to Germany next month where Todd will be playing solo for the metal band "Siren" and by the looks of Todd when he tried out this guitar for the first time, well, let's just say he's ready to rock!
