Hey guys,

I'm in the market for a wolf replica. I just wanted to know which luthier you guys would suggest. I've heard super great things about moriarty (just looked at his website and it looks like he may be taking orders again). I've also heard great things about scarlet fire. I have two Jerry Replica's at the moment. One built from Resurrection Guitars, and one from Waldschmidt. I love them both, but for the money, they have too many errors and oddities (I know this is part of dealing with wood guitars). Point being, I want input on a quality builder who will produce an instrument made of the highest quality wood, with good intonation, and stable tuning ( I guess that goes without saying).

Both are Top Shelf Luthiers. IMHO.

i have not seen one of Leo's instruments but have had a couple lefty Moriarty Wolfs (wolves) come through my shop, speaking as a dealer for high-end guitars (PRS Private Stock, Gibson Historic, Fender Custom Shop), I would not hesitate if you get the opportunity to buy one.

I have seen and played both and I don't think you could go wrong with either, but I know leo from Scarlet and I have a Scarlet Tiger, and it is just simply amazing. And leo was great to work with. Im hoping to get a Scarlet wolf someday.

I've received some work from Leo at Scarlet Fire Guitars and he's reliable. Another reliable replica builder is Anthony Coscia from Coscia guitars (ac4468 here). I am fortunate to have his "Bella" Tiger clone. Plays great.

Bob is an incredible builder of these guitars I happen to own one myself it is unbelievable. I think you really should consider one of Bob’s Wolf guitars. In my opinion he is building the best Wolf out there. His attention to detail is impeccable. As for Jerry tone it is spot on! I’m running a FYD Waldo modded amp into a MC 2105 through two JBL D120’s and it’s insane I don’t think I can get much closer to the tone. Check out his work before you buy, you won’t be disappointed! You would be doing yourself an injustice if you don’t check out his work.

Best Regards,
