Can't wait to see this instrument with finish to bring out the grain, and even more excited to see the headstock.

Matthew, Are there sound clips of the original guitar somewhere? I can't wait to hear this guitar. The craftsmanship is amazing. I bet it'll sound really cool.

Wow - great set of wood looking beautiful. Love the bridge too. ...but I also really dig that white bridge in the original.
