Given what you've played, that's incredible.

Believe me, I know the emotional (and financial) investment that accompanies a commission like this, and so many instruments don't reach the (usually) unrealistic aspirations set for them by their new owner.
Even though you're still on "honeymoon", I'd wager you'll still be saying this in a few years time; a great result!

Nice playing, but we all knew that was coming...

Cheers,
Steve

Lovely to hear this guitar, your playing/assessment and John's comments. All the things I love about the custom made guitar process - the thoughtfulness on both the player and luthier's part in the planning and the willingness to be surprised with the outcome and where that journey leads the musician and the builder. usb_chord - looks like this is the beginning of a great musical adventure for you. Congratulations!

BTW - I appreciated what you shared about how many of John's guitars that you have played over the years. Following the evolving path of a builder is a real treat and then to have one of their creations built for you makes it even more special.

Best,
Jayne
