    But ironically, pickups don't seem to be a target? There are a few out there who, like TV Jones, create authentic Rick style pickups.

    Awesome. I have a custom 365 Capri on order. Since 2011. Maybe someday it will materialize.

    I went to a pre-show meet and greet with The Church a few years ago and was talking with Ian Haug of The Church (and previously Powderfinger) about his 12 string Crockerbacker. He brought me right up on stage and handed it to me to try. It played and sounded great! What a great guy, too!

    I love Piers guitars. I too have been smitten with them since seeing Tim Rogers playing them all those years ago. I haven't seen one I don't like. Diesel has Duo Jet style model made by Piers and Jim Moginie a few different models.

    I've been in contact with Piers a few times over the years but have never had the courage to ask how much I'd be up for or even a ball park figure :(

    Enjoy that beast it is a thing of beauty.

    In this case, he wasn't looking for a Ric copy, he was looking for a Pierce Crocker.:D

    Thanks!

    I don't think he tries to make a secret of how much they cost. 5.5k AUD will get you one, including a sturdy Hiscox case.

    Not cheap but considering he builds them one by one I thought it was actually very reasonable. What's a new White Falcon worth here these days? About the same I think.

    Thanks, I saw recently he was putting figures on his facebook page and was pleasantly surprised at $5k That is exceptional value for what you get. If I was in the market or had the funds for a new Gretsch I'd go straight past it and see Piers in heart beat. I've always loved the idea of locally hand made guitar based on a Silver Falcon and even if it did cost a bit more than a factory Gretsch it would be worth every penny.
