Just saw this;

I wish they'd do these painted tops on a 000/OM guitar. I'd be all over it!

Saw the Sailor Jerry ones on FB this morning.
Impressive inlay work, but at $21,500, I donít see them selling many.

I think that new CEO-9 looks interesting, and I love what Martin did with the CEO-7 00!

It's almost as if they purposely don't want to do an attractive burst....

Much like that dog poker guitar last year, these donít do it for me. I canít imagine that many people buying these but I must be wrong since they are making them.
