Thanks Dennis, and I hope the stroke was rewarding? They love being played, as you know, and will let you know it in no uncertain terms.

Thanks bro, I'm glad you coerced me into buying this set.
The one positive from SBAIC? No, no...there was also Heritage Insurance.
But hanging around Larry Davis' (Gallery Hardwoods) table surely was fun!

This species of ebony is exciting...in a Rorschach test sort of way.
Go ahead Tom, what do you see?

Wow! That ebony looks crazy good under finish. The binding and purfling lines are the perfect accent. Gorgeous guitar Steve. We are going to get a report on the sound? I have not worked with that wood and am curious how it sounds.
