Looks great - I'd go with the black tuners and no pickguard. I wish!! Also, I want to try one of those ekoa picks.

So glad you kept #1 Ted! It looks perfect with Helene, too. ~ Mike

So, given that #1 has chrome Grovers instead of the black Gotohs the rest of them will have, and that we will have another one in a few weeks, and that I love this guitar too much to let it go, I decided to add #1 to the family stable so I can get to know it even better. Here's Helene "field testing" #1 on our boat over the weekend. I think the smile says it all.

Ted, besides the obvious comment about the nice guitar, I think it is great that you both play. Joan is my most appreciate audience, but she has never had the desire to learn to play guitar... "You play, I'll listen." She does own a very nice T5, though.

So, what do you play when Helene is playing the new Savoy?

Thanks to all for the kind comments.

Mike, perhaps it was meant to be. Jim, it is nice that Helene can share in my passion for guitars. As to what I play when she is playing the Savoy, mostly I just listen.

Ok, so it seems that this guitar has encouraged me to play more than I usually do, which I'm told is a good thing.

Hey Ted, dealers review are not counted.

You have to rotate this little bugger around for REAL feedback. 😈😈😈

The downside of being a dealer: people think you should give up your place in line. I'm thinking it is good business to have that available for potential buyers to try... you know, as a totally selfless public service kinda thing.

Exactly what I was thinking, Captain.
