Finally shot some photos of the crossover yesterday. This one will be available for adoption in a few weeks once it settles in and gets a final setup.






















Thanks for looking and all comments welcome.

Yep, number me among your admirers, Fred.
Not only is that a beautiful instrument, but you soldiered through adversity to finish.
Kudos, sir!
