The guitar arrived just before 5:00 in great shape. I have been playing it ever since. I am finally stopping to eat.
Quick comments with a more measured reply to follow tomorrow.
The instrument is more beautiful than even the best of your very good photographs. Fit and finish are impeccable. There are a wealth of little details that just don't cease to amaze. The wood craft is superb. The mahogany sparkles like a miracle.
And the sound,,,
It sounds as good as the best guitars
I have played, and there have been a few. But it is more remarkably
mahogany-ish than any of those, Warm, sweet sparkle is the closest
brief description. Punch without boom
My wife came down from upstairs (we have a very open house) to say that she wished I could here it from up there. The sonic color is a great rendition of an even, broad range. The balance is spot on. I crawled up and down the neck with my tuner turned on. The intonation is dead right, and the sound captures that precision. Already this young box has a great voice.
And the playing,,,
I love having this thing in my hands. I swear it makes me a better player. It is comfortable and responsive. In short, it feels like it sounds miraculous.
Thank you for making such a wonderful thing and then sending it to me. I hope you are having a great day because you surely made mine,
