UPDATE - 9/25@9:40AM: Loucin Guitars founder Garren Dakessian was featured in an article yesterday where he talks about getting the opportunity to make a guitar for Lifeson:

... "I am a huge Rush fan. It was a dream to do something for Alex Lifeson," said Dakessian. "I heard about it last Thursday and I haven't slept since. My wife said to me, 'What are you, 12?'" ... "The band gets hundreds of offers a week. 'Use my guitar, my pedal.' I told him, I didn't want an endorsement. I just wanted to build him a guitar for his personal collection. He loved that idea." ...
