  • Just a reply to let you know your pride and joy made it's arrival to the San Francisco Bay Area just fine ! Did an first tune -up yesterday and open- strummed it, sounds very encouraging. I did a little acoustic exam on sound board / tone tapping, has some real great response dynamics !!!!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH. The mango wood really shows up well on the lower bout/side grain almost like opal ! As time moves on and the wood darkens to maturity , this guitar will really be a visual work of art.

  • Today, at last, I got the guitar in my hands !!

    I have to say that sounds very well, it looks very sexy (yes, it's very atractive!) and the finish is very nice. Very good job, congratulations. I think I will probably buy you another one in the future ....

    I like the case a lot too, it's small and looks very good!
