What a stunner! Iím a genuine lover of maple. Some say my affection borders on unnatural. Lol.

So, somebody wanted you to check this out and let you take it but you didnít buy it? Are they planning to sell it? Do people routinely give you expensive guitars to just take for a bit? Hey, itís a great gig if you can get it!

The maple is mine, but the MRW belongs to a friend. As far as I know, it's NOT for sale. As for the rest, well, the nice guitar club has some perks, I guess. . .

I said in post #7 that this was a wish-list guitar.

Now that I've heard it in your most able hands, Brian, I think it might just top that list.

I hope you can remember to put it down once in a while. A man needs to eat and sleep, after all. Enjoy it in good health, amigo!

Brian, this just about says it all. Congratulations...

As far as I'm concerned, there's nothing lacking here, nothing to critique. Iím coming to grips with that slowly. Whew . . .

USBóThat is, to my ears anyway, about as good as a guitar can sound. Extreme clarity in the mids, great push, just perfect. John is on the top of his game. Wow. óRichard

What an incredible looking and sounding guitar. Your playing certainly brings out the best in it.

Ah, that's right. Maple yours, MRW the loaner. Congrats on the very wonderful guitar.

I'm sure people love to hear you play their guitars. I wonder if, after your incredibly skilled playing, the guitar is sad when it returns to a mere mortal (or worse) owner? My guitar neck would probably bend back to you as it was being returned to me. Haha.

So...... does that mean your Frog is available?

Seriously. Congrats on your usual trifecta NGD:

1. An obscenely beautiful guitar that inconceivably sounds better than it looks!
2. Wickedly awesome playing to showcase the uber-fine instrument
3. Pure and utter Joy oozing in your post

Good stuff man. I love reading about NGD's where a Circa is involved! Play her in good health! I look forward to the more 'generalized' video soon!!

The real story here is the musical playing.
The focused clarity of that guitar is really something else.
