I really like it. The wood combos go well together. The receivers should really luv it.

I second the sweetness of the wood combo. The dovetails really look sharp and dont over power the whole thing either.

Very nice and the wood combo works quite well. Make sure the pup is broke or at least past the teething stage before you let them take delivery.
