IPGUG = Insanity Plus Grail Unobtanium Grade
SYKG = Sell Your Kids Grade

Pretty common industry terms.

Nobody does it better! And very few do it as well.

Thanks for sharing the pics.

Looks lovely. I got to play my first Circa at Artisan a few years back and promptly ordered two. First a Mahogany and later a Brazilian version. Both 12 fret 000 type things. Super nice guy, Jt1 and I chatted with John S and his wife for a long while. Congratulations and feel invited to jam if you come to the east coast/DC area. Bring the Circa!

I wonder if John uses that press for a Panini when he's on his lunch break...

John eats scraps of abalam and Brazilian rosewood on his lunch break. No panini.
