Great job with the site, bro! :)
Yeah, his main factory used to be in Brewster, NY (not far from me) but, Brian sold the entire business a number of years ago, and now the company only sells the "i" models. But, someone told me they're still making the custom models, but, not sure who's actually making them these days. Probably overseas, like the "i" models. I guess????? Been a while since I've been "in the know"....
A very good friend of mine has 3 original custom BM guitars, made by Brian himself....oh, those axe's are SO SWEET!!! (they're very close friends)
Not sure how true this is, but, I was originally told that when the "i" models first came out (like my i9F Model) that the "i" stood for "IMPORT" model, now, I think, the "i" means something else. "Intelligent" or some crap like that????
I actually live in the village of Cold Spring, and the BM store is next door to my house, but, it's very small...kinda looks like a little tiny music store, and they give lessons, guitar repairs, sales, etc....Have NO CLUE where their factory is, or even if it's in the US anymore???
Again, it's been a while since I've been around the music biz...so, not 100% sure about all this stuff anymore. I could be wrong... hehe
