That is a stunning piece of work, Matt. Can't wait to hear you play it after it settles in. Enjoy it in good health!

What a beauty congrats!!! I've been playing a Redwood/Koa FS recently that I'm extremely impressed with. It hangs well with most $XX,XXX instruments I've compared it with.

Wow! You just can't go wrong with a Santa Cruz. Congratulations on your new guitar and look forward to hearing about it after you put it through its paces.

Best,

Oh man, that is offensively tasteful... I love the extended blue purfling idea and the stain over the mahogany reminds me of an old Gibson SJ I had...

Play it with joy my friend!

Gorgeous guitar, Matt. The headstock and bridge in particular are awesome.

Looking forward to some sound samples when you're ready.

Enjoy!

Thanks y'all!
The guitar will be delivered to me in Montana next week, as I'll be there visiting Tony Polecastro for his Acoustic Life Festival. Will definitely be filming as much as possible with the guitar. Will be so awesome to be able to share it with the folks attending the festival!

No good sound clips yet, but here's a couple photos just after the unboxing.
My dudes Tony and Noah checking it out at TAC HQ.
