It was really cool seeing Nick's shop. The most amazing part is when he opened his wood locker and starts pulling out gorgeous pieces of BRW and 50 and 60 year old German/Swiss spruce tops! Almost overwhelming choosing pieces. Side note, he's planning on starting my build in February.

I wanted to post some photos of my Jumbo, but I got too involved in playing to take the time to take any pictures. Then I made some efforts, and discovered that the African Blackwood is nearly impossible to photograph without my prominent reflection making it into a "selfie". After a number of attempts, I managed some halfway decent photographs.
