Smile Woohoo!!!

What an outstanding instrument!!! (And "outstanding in its field" too)

Sorry, I could not resist.

Truly stunning in its beauty.

And I am QUITE SURE IT WILL SOUND EQUALLY MAGNIFICENT!!!

Way to go

Paul

Thanks Tom. Or course, Bob played it much better, but I know he would be pleased you enjoyed it second hand.

Spectacular! I love the 00 body and this one is quite unlike any I've ever seen. Congratulations, Steve and Ryan on a truly unique build.

Love the builder's "smile of pride" at the 1:44 mark listening to it continue to sustain and bloom... Kudos to both you and Ryan...

Hey Jimmy, thanks for stopping by, and for the kind word. Our tastes run down a similar track, so I'm honored by your comment. My hope, while mixing traditional shapes/models with untraditional woods, is not to offend the purist but hopefully expand horizons a bit.

Thank you Bob! You made me go back to 1:44 to see what you were mentioning. Ah...my goofy smile. Not only enjoying the instrument, but glad to get through that piece with only minor flubs.

Thanks again,

Steve
