    Here's the latest F-5 off the Elkhorn work bench. A beautiful piece of Maui Koa with a Western red cedar soundboard. I reall love the end results of pairing these two woods together. Quite pleased all the way around with this one!!

    From Robb - "Quite pleased all the way around with this one!! ". If i could make anything 1/10 as great,i'd be trumpetting it all over the world -
