    HNGD Collin! It was a quite complicated guitar to do. Thanks for good cooperation and patience.

    Thanks, you guys did an outstanding job. It looks amazing and I'm sure it plays just as good too. I'll definitely post many videos of her in use.

    That is truly a work of art. I wish we saw more pale moon ebony fretboards on guitars.

    That one shape near the strap holder (or whatever it's called) looks like an eye. Really nice looking instrument.

    Brb, ran out of tissues.

    HNGD! That thing looks amazing! How long did it take from placing the order to getting confirmation it was finished?

    It looks incredible! Congrats man.

    I have so many questions about it but but I'll have to wait until you actually play it lol. I hope it doesn't take too long.

    Can't wait for a good review, I'm happy for you AND because that's 1 less guitar ahead of mine in the queue to be finished!

    Hahaha thanks. It took a year and a half. (originally quoted 10) However, the delay was caused by (from what I remember) the inlay artist having bypass surgery or something along the lines of that. Just an unlucky occurrence. The wait was well worth it though, I just can't wait to hold herrrrrr.
