People say beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Some days I agree, some days I don't... Let's just say that I think you have very good taste, Dave.

Leo's rosettes and headstocks are growing on me... I can still change my mind but these days I find that Leo builds the prettiest, most harmonious looking guitars amongst the Somogyi alumni.

Really dig the tasteful use of green on this guitar.

Especially how it is used as purfling on the upper part of the guitar where the wide binding is used--tres classy!

I had the good fortune of seeing this instrument in person and it blew me away. Absolutely stunning craftsmanship and the tap of the closed box was ridiculous. My only wish was that I had the chance to play it stringed up. Leo himself was a great guy too! Really enjoyed my time spent with him in his shop

Also, I managed to bribe Leo. The guitar is now mine :P sorry Dave
