When I look at the immensity of the project and the fine workmanship of this project, I can understand why it would be a year late. A friend of mine made a guitar and it was more like 10 years late. The blue on that wood is stunning. Its not a stratavaious but must be close.

Great work, I’m sure it sounds as good as it looks.

Very nicely executed. That headstock is very compact, is it comfortable for tuning? I think the blue is wonderful and the sculpted heel is a great idea on single cuts. Way to go.

It is about a 1/2 inch smaller than my Heritage and tuning is not really an issue. THe compactness really with not bashing it into things or my own teeth ( yes it has happened)
