By the way, for those that have contemplated a custom luthier built guitar, let me point out one (of many) benefits of making it custom. If you examine the pictures closely, you'll notice there is a little bit of extra space between the high E string and the edge of the fretboard. One of the issues I consistently have is the high e string sometimes slipping off the edge of the fretboard when I fret it - probably a consequence of poor hand/wrist position (but I'm not likely to change). For example, I have a wonderful Taylor Limited Edition Koa that I love - but I consistently slip that high e string. I mentioned this to Mark, and he said "no problem, I can compensate for that". I'm sure everyone has other examples of the benefits of a custom guitar, but that's a little annoyance I won't have with this guitar.
