Absolutely gorgeous. That Pernambuco is beyond words. Wow! And I couldn't agree more on the decision to let Jason do what he wants. Awesome. My MDW has really blossomed. You are going to love it!

Pretty beautiful rosette...looks like you are going to have to do some playing in a church... Sainte-Chapelle in Paris would be a great background location!

My thoughts exactly. My niece lives in Paris and we were there not long ago, maybe 3 years or so. I love anything historically related, and have spent a bunch of time in Europe over the years, and this is one of my favorite places, I think because it's not as heel-trodden as some of the other Parisian landmarks. I have hopped around inadvertently following the Passion relics from Istanbul to Venice to Paris. Hagia Sophia in Istanbul is super cool, bullet holes in the wall and such strong Romanesque influence that to me the only thing that looks like a Mosque now is the added minarets. And if you haven't seen the Tres Riches Heures its super cool. I nerd out on that time period. Read Agincourt by Juliet Barker if you want probably the best non-fiction book I have ever read.

I totally dig what Jason has done with those colors and the fret markers. With the Pernambuco and the Spruce top, this one is going to be a gem. Congratulations.

Matthew, thatís crazy beautiful. This one will be stellar. If I ever went with a modern guitar, it would be something just like this.

The blues in that rosette made me think of Chagall. My wife and I sought out his work across France after seeing it in Metz, and discovered that his last work was just across the river in a little Mainz church (we lived in Wiesbaden).

Chagallís story is very interesting, and his work is amazing.
