    I really love the back and sides and the back of the neck -- what a clever "sunburst" color scheme! Front is a little plain, by comparsion....

    That birdseye back, with the color scheme looks like something in deep space. Must have been a bear to carve.

    I always love to see Andy's work.

    Hello... Grinch here... I.. don't.. like.. it

    Great piece of work for sure, but not for me I'm afraid. One of you guys will just have to buy it when he takes it to NAMM

    Looks like the 'eye of god' nebula was inspiration for that burst...

    The back's a bit too colourful for me - but nevertheless, an awesome looking instrument!

    with you there ... noooo... I love what Si et al now do at Brook (so much they even managed to sell me a six string when I thought I was over that sort of thing...), but Andy M's stuff (of what I've seen) can be a little bit whacky for me

    That bridge. What is it made of? And have you tried an ebony bridge?

    It's not mine. It will be at NAMM in LA later this month. I have no idea what wood he used for the bridge and fretboard.
