I am not, typically, a Brazilian fan. Heresy, I know! Nor do I know why. However, I LOVE the look of that dread. I think that's going to be an outrageously good instrument.

Thank you! More pics from Jimmy today. The top wood is so nice that I'm almost tempted to leave it as a natural finish...but I am a sucker for a nice burst. Decisions, decisions...

That Iris looks great, but I have to ask, is the inlay on the Edmond supposed to overlap on itself like this? Never seen something like that before.

Smile Wow!

Sweet! Two at once... I am jealous.

Beautiful woods. Kind of like getting a really nice Martin and a really nice Gibby, but probably even better! Hahahaha

Have fun with these!

Salud
