Excellent! How exciting for you! I'll be interested to see how your new guitar takes shape.

It's Guatemalan rosewood, Tom. Steve showed me stacks of spectacular rosewoods and similar woods, but this set had the tap tone that really moved me. The hue of the lighter parts of the rosewood looked very close to that of the redwood top - I think it will be a subtle but pleasing effect, bound with a dark brown Amazon rosewood.

His fingerstyle (FS), 12 fret with a cutaway. Since I wanted another guitar specifically for fingerstyle, it seemed the logical choice, but it was actually a tough decision.

I don't mean to hijack Ryan's thread - my time will come. Hopefully he'll take time to post some photos!

Hey, that looks like a great turnout, on a Friday no less. Saturday I would think would be even better!

Pretty good Friday. Lots of local traffic with a decent smattering of people that have traveled just for this. With a beautiful weekend in the forecast, itís the place to be.
