Smile Finally reached it's home

Well, this beauty has finally reached it's new home this past Friday. This is the first guitar that I have watched being built virtually, and on AGF. While the pictures have been great, seeing this beauty in real time has no equal. This is also the first guitar that I have really had a hand in all the design components (with Steve and Ryan guiding me of course), and you never know what to expect until you see it in person....and, I must say, it's really a beauty.

The sound is waking up, and the sustain is growing by the day. It's interesting hearing the tonal changes as the wood slowly adapts and comes alive to it's new shape. I really like the 00 size, and it plays like butter.

Hopefully, I can post some sound clips when it's a bit more settled in.
What an amazing experience, and collaboration with some top notch people and accomplished luthiers...now, the journey begins with a new instrument!
