I don't know a damn thing about guitars ( exepct that I love listening to the instrument ) , but I thought this little piece in the BBC4 Les Paul documentary was priceless :

Very nice indeed . I checked out the prices and they seem reasonable considering the effort required and the quality of the workmanship .

I watched a documentary last night about 6 guitars Mark Knopfler had used through important parts of his life. It ended with a guitar by (and a interview with) John Montelone. Which led me to this site.

I was just looking for this video again, for someone at work, noticed it had been removed.
Here's the full doc on another link just in case anyone lands here again :
