It's been a while since I last posted about a luthier, but I found here a pretty fine one, a French guy called Paul Lairat. Just look at these guitars!
I of course selected his most noticeable guitars that also fit my taste! First on the right you can see a semi-hollow model with F-holes, a Benedetti (high end French brand) humbucker in neck position, a piezo pickup under the bridge and a bizarre finish - it looks like wood trying to imitate Formica!
On the left is a very smart combination of ergonomics and classicism, a model with a beautiful woodwork reducing matter to the minimum... This very peculiar construction makes even more sense when applied to Lairat's astonishing long scale double 6-string bass, a huge instrument that is not heavier than a regular Les Paul...
