The guitar is finished! I just played it for 2 hours straight and it’s a dream. I just couldn’t be more happy. The tone is monster, and the beauty of this guitar cannot be overstated.
The burst in pictures does not do it justice. I actually got emotional and feel very humbled to be able to have this guitar. I think back to 1991, when I was 21 years old and I bought an old Yamaha classical at a garage sale for $25.
I didn’t know the first thing about or how to proceed. But I bought some books, and poured into it.. To think about this, and to fast forward to today when I received this guitar makes me very proud.
I can’t thank Ben enough for all the conversations we had about it, and for pouring his heart and soul into it , as he does every one of his guitars.
I have a HUGE man crush on him right now!

Congratulations AZ! Not only is this one of the most beautiful guitars I have ever seen but the tone, power and balance is out of this world.
I look forward to Frog and Toad videos showcasing this guitar.

Ben and Brad, Amazing instrument in SOOO many ways. I watched you guys play a song together on FB and it was so enjoyable. Congratulations!!

Ben, gotta hand it to you for coming up with a great design. Also, I couldn't help but chuckle at the "series" names of Comma and Period...your creativity is simply off the charts .

Congratulations Brad and Ben! What a gorgeous guitar! And it sounds amazing... I can imagine you played it for two hours straight

Brad- are you really gonna carry this thing around behind the seat of a UPS truck?? I remember early in this thread you mentioned that.... Do we need to chip in to buy you a beater guitar??

Default No worries

Beth, This will not be going into my UPS Truck, because I have Bens very first guitar he ever built occupying that job! lol.
I think i gave him $100 for it, and its been in my truck for 5 years. Extreme Hot and frigid colds. Its held up!
