Oh hey, and John did send me this picture of the bridge installed. We're getting pretty darned close now.

Thanks Lonzo. I try to match the burst to what is going on with the body or at least give instructions to Tony to that’s effect.

Treenewt, me too...in my imagination all I hear is angels singing when I actually get the guitar and play it. Of course, then I recall that it will be ME playing it and maybe some of the "angelic glow" is lost.

Ken, Thanks and I totally agree. John builds great guitars and it seems like I always get some of his better stuff. But trust the fact that I WILL play this one....some people build all kinds of things to show off guitars...which is totally fine, to each their own. But I like to simply play mine...anything not getting played gets sold at my house

Thanks Jamie! I know you know how good these guitars are. John has finished or is finishing several that are equally stunning. I'm looking forward to getting this one for sure

Paul, as always, you NAILED it. Thank you!! And if anyone would know, you certainly would. You and I have been on this path together for some time. And the benefits to each of us have been nothing short of amazing. Thank you John!!

True, Steve. AND, John gets to say it about your beauties, too! You guys have all been on a roll.

I am glad this is done now, since my new JK is next and is growing closer daily.

Plus Mike has waited a LOOOONG time for this one.

Enjoy this Mike!

Paul
