Hi Steve,

She has arrived!!

I’ve only had a few hours to play it today, but it is truly an amazing instrument. Congrats and thanks so much!!

My first impression was that the basses are so tastefully strong and rich. They provide substantial support and project with out “growling” as some say. In bass melodies, they sing beautifully!! What impresses me more is that you’ve accomplished this without compromising the first string. This is the only guitar I’ve played that actually sounds better and better beyond the 12th fret. Uncanny!! After playing a bit longer, the presence and balance across strings really struck me as something special. This seems true in all positions up and down the neck as well. The best thing about this guitar already is that I would say “this is an instrument made with masterful craftsmanship, exceptional tone, and a pure, balanced voice! Oh, and by the way, it’s freaking LOUD!!!”

Well, I’m going to stop writing now and go play ‘me lady’ some more!!

Cheers,

Stephen Mattingly
