Uploader acting weird.

If you click on a photo, it appears in a window with the correct orientation/rotation.

a) I *believe* if you put the images "inline" inthe email, it rotates them correctly. I'm not 100% on that, but if you don't place then inline, i think it just puts them at the end in their "incorrect" rotation. I may have completely misunderstood what I saw.

b) Duuuuuuuuude. :shock: That white and gold is so killer. It's funny how I would consider going with a "free" color as "brave", but I'm too chicken to do it, even when it pays off like this beauty!

changed them to "inline" and the rotation remains identical to the original post.

:applause:

So glad that beauty finally arrived. It is pure class, right down to the personal greeting on the back plate. Once in a lifetime guitar. I hope it brings your son years and years of joy. (And that the gift of it from you does the same.)

Congratulations!

So much pure class on this one!!
The White, the Black, the Gold.
The signature and familial back story is just insane icing.

Major congrats to you and yours on this beautiful, classic, heirloom instrument.
May it be the source of many sweet tones and memories for you all.

I love it. Classic, classy, and looks like a guitar, not a coffee table or a woodworking experiment. Well done!

I say that guitar has so much mojo it makes my head swim. Seriously. Each photo highlights some new subtlety that only enhances your son's genius. The way the gold logo, for example, seems to emerge from the white/white finish. And the way the fingerboard's color harmonizes with the binding ... One of the most beautiful instruments I've ever seen.

Thanks for the photographs. They are fantastic! :coolpics:
