I am very happy for you. If you drive to Arizona, you are passing right by, you might need to stop on your way home, just sayin!

The aesthetics of this guitar are appealing but you will not be prepared for the tone it will give you. I'm on my second Kostal (a Mod D) and I just can't fathom how a guitar can sound as good as his does. Standby!


This is a great example of his basses.

Back is cut out and braced and ready for gluing to the rim. Here's a pic of my back with it's batch siblings, an 00 that will have a Cambodian Rosewood back and sides (on the left) and an MDW that will have Cocobolo back and sides (center).



Moving along.

Here's a view of the back glued to the rim. Not sure where Jason is on the top at this point. I'll be totally inspired by this guitar!

Definitely in my top 3 favorite sets of Koa I have ever seen. What a beautiful choice.
