Thanks David. Without putting it into words, "warm and elegant" was what I was shooting for...

Really beautiful guitar RP. Iíve built a very similar instrument on the builder so that means you have great taste. I had black back and sides and Tamo Ash though [emoji846]

Yeah, we've taken to lovingly calling it the Double Dong.

Turned sideways while playing it's not quite as evident.

Here's mine! X20 with amber back/sides and Koa top. adjustable bridge and K&K+Ghost pickups option.

Ordered April '22 and was with me just six weeks later.

Perfection? Almost! But without doubt the best guitar I have owned in the last 50 years.
