My guitar used a 50-year-old piece of German spruce. When it arrived, I was surprised at how much better it was than the prototype. It was the most incredible guitar I had ever heard or played.
I can tell you that my guitar, and others he has made, have been compared favorably to much more expensive guitars, not because of any arrangement he has with these people but because it was their honest reaction. Josh was extremely and pleasantly surprised at the response, not the reaction of someone who has arranged the circumstances.
I have lost touch with Josh and miss having beer with him at Fitz down the road from his house. However, what I can tell you about him is that he was always a very genuine person and not one to manufacture such complements to his work. During the early few years of his guitar making, when I was still in touch with him, these things only seemed to affect him as pleasant surprises.
As for the quality of his guitars, mine is the finest I have ever played. You would have to be the judge about whether they are worth the money you are talking about. I only wish now that I had ordered a tournavoz guitar from him when I had the chance at a much lower price. Even more, I wish Josh and I were in touch and could go have a beer together. I've been brewing some stuff that I think he would find very interesting.
