About ferrules, as you know for intonating saddles are set the way when the 1st and the 4th saddles are further than the 2nd,3rd, 5th and 6th. I think that the luthier just decided to reflect positions of saddles with ferrules. Why he did that, maybe to be original.

Staggering the string holes like that is not new (see Peavey, Schecter, etc.). The issue is the irregularity, which he admits to.

I quite like it...

The 'socialite' model is my favourite though... damn it looks so nice. :



If it was a UK based company/had dealers here I would consider getting one.

Might just be me, but that top one looks slightly different shape to the socialite. The horn on the left looks more like that on the coquette? Kind of like a mix of the 2 shapes. Might just be the angle though.
