It was a long wait, but by the looks of it, absolutely worth it! Gorgeous instrument, and I bet it sounds even better than it looks. Enjoy the heck out of it!!

Wow that is a stunner! I love Preston's work. He makes some of the most dynamic instruments I have ever played.

Congrats.

Thank you for all of the comments. It's nice to share excitement with folks who appreciate it.

My understanding with koa is that it sounds the worst the first time you play it, attributed to its tendency to open up and realize itself over time. If that is the case, this guitar is going to be a dream, because it already sounds heavenly.

Thanks again for all of the compliments.
