I had the great chance of meeting Harold, today. While on one of my usual cycling rides up on the escarpment, I was heading south on Cedar Springs Road, south of Kilbride when out of the corner of my eye I saw a stripped down Gibson Thunderbird. I couldn't just ride by without inquiring so I spun the bike around and that was when I learned that it wasn't a stripped down Gibson Thunderbird, but one of Harold's creations for a customer (though it was a replica Thunderbird with some refinements). He offered to take me into his shop, showed me his current projects, acoustic and electric and his fine collection of instruments. He has a beautiful collection of hard woods, and I was particularly enamoured with the 00 sized acoustics, one of which was made with spalted something or other. Great guy, master builder, beautiful instruments.
