    What an exceptional looking guitar! The detail work on the neck is excellent! Every time I look at it I see something new. The neck joint (or lack thereof) really keeps the lines on the back of the guitar very smooth flowing. I can only imagine how smooth it must play.

    I really thought that the colors of the face of the body were so deep and offsetting to each other it almost looked like water but Brown. And it looks so light and thin. Looks like something that would sound great and you'd be able to Gig because of the weight. Very handsome piece
