With apologies in advance to Bill*, I guess you've proven that a Rose by any other color would look as sweet.

Nice work!

I'll try to get some close ups of 26 when I get back from SPBGMA.

Picked this up Saturday night in Fairfax, VA at a LRB concert. #It was great getting to meet Darby and having some real players test drive 26.

26 has quite a bark and the tone is really starting to come out. Wow!

Sorry - guess I'm doing something wrong. Is there somewhere I should place the files for them to be accessed properly?
