Thanks so much Beth! I couldn't agree more with your assessment of Ray's guitars.

Look forward to seeing your build's progress as you make yourself at home in Ray's shop. Awesome that you live there and can watch your guitar come to life!
Thanks Carmel Cedar. Ray has some gorgeous maple, and I definitely prefer the bird's-eye maple. Sound like you snagged a really great guitar there!

Yes, being able to watch Ray build guitars is quite a privilege.
