Fretboard Journal has an interview with Tony Klassen of New Era Guitars. Joe Henry’s name comes up several times, especially in reference to his new signature model, which is due to be finalized later this year. Apparently to be named The Bellwether, the signature model will be based on a 1930’s Washburn (produced and distributed by Tonk Brothers of Chicago during that period).
Remember that if you’re interested, Mr. Klassen has a 2-3 year waiting period. Plenty of information and pictures of his gorgeous guitars over at New Era’s website.
