Only on AGF would someone misidentify a theorbo as a lute bass.

Seriously, Burton, you need to screen your clients.

I didn't pass most of the intelligence and personality tests, so Burton had to add a bunch of surcharges.

Despite your failings, I do like the photo you posted of yourself. You were so much older then, you're younger than that now.

Things are coming along. I'm really pleased with the choice of koa in this build. The dark lines in the back make it more visually interesting to me. Burton tells me he's going to incorporate some gold pearl into the rosette. Mama mia!

Absolutely spectacular and I know it will be off the charts sonically.

Beautiful woods and some (lots of) stunning original artistry. I love the detail in unexpected places. If you commissioned that guitar, well, they need to re-work the intelligence test results!!
Hopefully a sound clip in the not-too-distant. Congrats.
