Apart from looking super cool, what are the tiger stripes for Matthew? Maybe just to "one up" Juston, or do his Brondels have them too?

Here is my prediction: this will be awesome, I just received a Pernambuco Brondel 2c and like it a lot. Also, I was able to play Juston's at Artisan and thought it was wonderful as well. I have two Pernambuco guitars and believe it might be my favorite wood.

I like the ribbon side reinforcements. Should lighten up the build, and sure look cool!

You need a sound port so you can admire them while playing! Hahaha

I have cheetah prints in one, but my Brondels are totally pedestrian other than that. Laurent told me, “plain details for a plain man.”

Well you can add me to the list. I'm test driving a Brondel A2 Pernambuco that I'm having trouble putting down. First Pernambuco guitar I've ever played and I might agree Jim that it is quickly becoming my favorite tone wood. Such a light build, so fun to play and a vibe that I've never experienced with any other guitar. If you don't absolutely love your new Brondel then please PM me, lol.

There's been a major run on pernambuco with Laurent this year. I agree with your prediction. Too nice a guitar considering the buyer, though.
