In the spirit of full transparency, These last two pictures show some tear out in the torrified Sitka spruce top. They have been repaired and filled, but are still visible. These imperfections are entirely cosmetic and have do not affect the structure, tone, or playability of this little gem. Obviously, this sort of thing would be unacceptable on a commissioned guitar, in which case I would scrap the soundboard and start over, but for a spec piece with sweet tone, I think it can be overlooked if you’re okay with two small cosmetic flaws. Plus I’m knocking the price down quite a bit for this reason!
