Gheez! This has to be one of, if not the finest looking, and sounding guitars I have ever seen and heard! I do not know how you can sleep at night... you have got be giddy with anticipation Dennis. I would be pacing the floors 24/7 or consuming mass quantities, or both.

Now if the guys at Kinnaird had a twisted sense of humor, they would ship you a really beat up First Act, or similar, guitar just a day ahead of the real deal.

Way to blow it! At least Wal-Mart takes returns easily. We were just going to slap a label on that sucker and claim ignorance. But now, I guess we'll play it straight.

I'm in agreement with all of the others here: that's an absolutely incredible-looking and great-sounding instrument! Great job, guys, and congrats to Dennis! I don't know how Steve and Ryan can produce such wonderful-sounding deep-body OMs without having an overwhelming low-end like we find in some deep bodied guitars, but they manage to do it very well! BTW, both of my OMs are maturing very nicely! With guitars like these around the house, I don't find myself on the AGF very often these days......

I don't know if we've done any parting shots, but here are a couple. We managed to get some glamour shots at a local studio, but haven't received the finished pics yet. Till then, here are some snap shots from our shop:









Sorry, the back was particularly difficult to photograph. It was fun watching our local photographer sweat over just this difficulty. Of course, he did a great job. Stay tuned...

Steve

Thanks again for the encouraging remarks everyone. Your kindness has helped make this project even more enjoyable. Now for Dennis, an encouraging picture:



He gets the special "autographed" shipping box.

Congrats on a real beauty. I was going to point out some particulars that I like about the guitar, but I just really love the whole thing. Well done
