You guitar guys tear me up. Literally. It’s so beautiful that it’s painful.

I am glad that I am not the only person that thinks that this guitar is super classy looking. I wired it up last night and it is truly an amazing guitar. I am super proud of this one. Thanks everybody

Gorgeous. A beautiful piece. If it sounds half as good as it looks, you have a great guitar.
