"I love this guitar! I keep it right out close at hand. I couldn't be happier or more proud to own S/N 3"

- Chris Smither

"This is the loveliest instrument I have ever played . Its touch is beautiful, the intonation exquisite, the sustain out of this world. It's inspiring at all levels and all who hear it feel the same way."

- Jonathan Gertler

"Fran, I just wanted to let you know that the LizardEye accompanied me on the past 6 shows and every place I went was met with many questions, admiration, and great comments on the sound. I love it. It's wonderful. Having seen a fair number of indie luthiers' work, you deserve to be in the upper echelons. I've played many in the $10,000 range. Yours are better."

- Marjorie Thompson

"I've shopped for many acoustics, but was never quite satisfied until I played a Lizard Eye. It's my choice of acoustic."

- James "Gus" Deveau


"Oh my God! I just played Bryan's Lizard Eye. Fan-freakin-tastic! I love the details; the woods are obvious, but the clear pick guard is a really nice touch, and the finish is great. Each one is better than the last. I love the combination of woods you selected. But the true measure is how it sounds and plays because in the end, that's what counts. Very nice even across the strings, nice long decay, bright attack, nice and complex. I bow to your guitar making prowess!"

- Tim Rodrigues


"This guitar is every bit as good as anything that's being built today."

- G.E. Smith

"Fran builds great guitars. Period."

- Jorma Kaukonen
