Amazing stuff!

Wow. Just gorgeous. I'm not particularly fond of bursts, but this one is subtle and very pleasing to the eye. More pics and sound clips, please.

Very, very nice.

Thanks all for cleaning up the mess I created earlier. Austin of course is right, black binding. The color value is still not right on these images, the yellow is not nearly as dominant in reality. The image at the top of the page is pretty close to the real deal. Thanks Austin for all your hard work.

Can we have a tone and playability report now that you've played her awhile?

Apr-16-2008, 9:39pm
I'll give it a shot. The neck, 1 1/8" at the nut, has a slight radius, medium frets, carbon fiber reinforcement and is set up with a nice low action. For me it's very, very easy to play. The neck profile is a section of an ellipse which I prefer to a more pronounced "V". I know this is a personal prefrence but I find the ellipse very comfortable.
Austin and I talked about tone quite abit before he began his magic. I expressed a desire to have a woody yet clear tone and I got it. The low through mid range has a wonderful warm woody tone and the highs are crystl clear. It's also got great projection.
