Excellent, love that walnut! The options go together very well, and that case also matches perfectly :rockon:

Hmm this is the first time I've seen SAT ash. It really plays nice with the walnut. I really dig it. :applause:

Man this turned out to be just incredible! And I'm ordinarily not a big fan of claro but this piece just rocks!! To me the icing on the cake is how the ash in the trem cavity gives a natural backlit glow to the Floyd. It just pops right out along with the black diamond inlays. Just stellar man, Happy NGD!! :applause: :applause: :applause:

If I would have read the specs on the guitar before I viewed the pics, I would have expected to be underwhelmed, as most of the options (the biggies) are not high on my list. All I can say after looking at the pics is WOW. You've created my favorite Aries to date! Everything complements the other very well. Very nice job, sir. Congrats.

That's an A+ build. Everything is balanced and the woods you got look excellent.
