[QUOTE=Tim McKnight;1889293]Its Herrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrsheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeys semi-sweet chocolate.If you don't believe me, just stop by for a taste sample = QUOTE]

This is an inside joke at our house. On our aaniversary a few years ago, the kids took us out and offered chocolate on ice cream as a dessert. I refuse it unless it is Hershey's. They'll never let me live it down. They say there is no difference in chocolate syrups. I know there is.

I had a chance to see your guitar while visiting Tim & Mary last week -- and being the owner of a McKnight LS redwood-topped guitar myself (cocobolo, 'The Petoskey'), I can tell you that there is no way you will be disappointed in the tone of this guitar (and actually, that's true of any guitar Tim builds...but even moreso, given the LS redwood -- a remarkable topwood...)...

Thanks, Kurt.

Just updated with MORE photos (presumably the last):

Tim playing it again (after tweaking the action):



Tim and Mary, joking with me. Don't DO that!



Apparently, Tim doesn't know how to properly use a tripod.



A closeup of the fretboard and fret markers:
