maluaka in an above post did a great job of describing the tone. I will have to agree that the bass response is awesome. Just what I was looking for.
The only thing about the guitar that I need to adjust to is the neck profile. it is a little smaller than the Martins I play. But otherwise I am very pleased with the guitar.

Beautiful guitar !!!!! I've gotten so caught up in the exotic woods Ed uses, I lost sight of the beauty of a build with more traditional wood choices (not that torrefied anything is not exotic) with what looks like classic Ivoryoid body binding and flamed maple rosette. Congratulations.! I know you'll enjoy it. I know you've been chomping at the bit. Congrats again !

John

Ivoroid? Ivoroid!? Pshaww! Not in my shop

It's flamed maple, bearing a striking resemblance to your upcoming, John...

That looks awesome!

That's a very nice uniform torrified top as well! So many torrified tops seem to end up with rather pronounced dark bands or "racing stripes".

Glad you got the low end you wanted. The lightness of the Halcyon build and the little extra depth really brings out that woody bass. never at the expense of clarity either.

My dad (who knows nothing about music or guitars) was over the other day. I played him a tune on my Larrivee OM-05 followed by the same tune on the Halcyon OM. After I played the Halcyon he said "Holy crap, that second one sounds like it's plugged into an amp compared to the first one!".

Wow, photos can really be deceiving !! It looks like Ivoroid in the photo. Sorry to offend ! It is nice to see my build characterized as "upcoming" none the less.

Wow ! What a difference a photo and light angle make. Beautiful !

JOhn

PS: I still thought it looked beautiful in Ivoroid too.

Another home run for Ed and Ryan. Beautiful guitar! Enjoy
I am sorely tempted to sell my Larrivee for a 000 Rosewood. Nah!
