The best part, is it will be here for our big show! You can see my current Olson #547 in the picture. My band mate is now the owner of my Olson #547 and custody will be permanently turned over to him upon arrival of my Olson #1325. What a great guitar he is getting....and I am getting.

We will be 100% Olson when my new one arrives.
Very cool stuff. I loved Sister Hazel and was fortunate enough to see them a few times when they came back to Gainesville while I was in college.

Although I think it might be dangerous to play the show with your new Olson. I know if it were me...we're on stage...drummer counts off...everyone hits that first chord and I'm standing frozen with my tongue down to my knees ogling that beautiful instrument.

Love Sister Hazel myself.

Guitars were meant to be played... and this one will be too. No room for a closet queen. I have played my current Olson dread on every single gig I have ever played in the past 2 years. And will plan on playing this dread for a very long period of time at my gigs. Then again, I try to avoid the heavy bar cramped scene for gigs. I will probably starting bringing another dread to some gigs to mix it up. Sometimes I bring another guitar if I want to look like a rock star LOL. Woops, rock stars don't have guitars this nice!

Besides we don't have a drummer! Just two female and two male vocalists, and the two males play guitars and I also play fiddle, mandolin and harmonica. I do most of the singing except when I have a fiddle or mandolin in my hands, that is hard for me to both sing and play one of those!

Alright, glad to see Calton is getting back on track. Hope it continues - they make a great product! I don't know that I've ever seen a logo formed into the case before, that's pretty cool

I love the orange...I'd checked out a Calton a while back and that was my color of choice as well (it's great to be a Florida Gator)

One of these days I'm sure I'll bite the bullet. My guitars up to this point have been nice, but replaceable so I don't need the ultra protection Calton affords, but I can certainly see why you'd shell out to protect an instrument that's sure to be a special one!

Instead of going on a weeks vacation to the caymans, I think I'd rather hang out with Jim for a week.

I'd be happy to sweep the floor every night.

Just give me a cot & a blanket, & I'll slum it by the days work.

Jim's shop is very well organized and is an impressive shope for sure.

Keith,

I'm beyond speechless looking @ your Olson!

After gauking on jims website for years looking @ all the galleries of special guitars, I'd have to rate your Olson as one of the tops of all time in my book.
