New Vitar Book! (?)

Wow Vitars must be more popular than I (and this guy) thought… he’s put together a “book” on Vitar information. It’s apparently 60 pages long and is a copy/paste of the Wikipedia entry I wrote which is approximately 4 paragraphs long. He’s either using an incredibly large typeface or he just pasted in the entire html code for the site. I can’t decide if I should be flattered or litigious. I’m comforted by the fact that I’m probably the only person who would ever buy this book anyway.

Check out the cover of the book which I personally designed by copying and pasting his cover here

    This is very interesting! I was the first employee of Exinde. I was hired specifically to learn how to build the Vi-Tar. We were essentially a three man shop. Me, David Miller, and Jack Crom. Lee Larrison would come in to test anf fine tune the setup of each instrument prior to shipping. With exception of the first 4 or 5 early instruments made, I had been involved with every Vi-Tar produced.
    The instrument reputed to be John Blair’s most certainly is Nefertiti. I had worked it when we upgraded the electronics after modifications were made in early production.
    Later models were made out of polyurethane with aluminum channel and t-bar providing the structural stability. They had no perfling. All original early models were manufactured in Franklin Ma, and were hand laid fiberglass. Very few models with the XI logo and Upton MA were made in fiberglass. The switch to injection molded polyurethane/aluminun was mafe to lessen the weight (major complaint) and reduce the manufacturing cost…primarily labor.
    If I can help with any questions please email me
    I was with the company throughout the entire Vi-Tar production period.
