:shock:

WOW. That is an inspired build. And what a fantastic presentation. A woodsy, autumnal background for a guitar fashioned from beautiful woods. Glorious.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for your consideration!
Not only is it beautiful to me; it tunes, plays, and sounds great too!

That's a wonderful top! It looks a lot like my Deep Lava HF2. I haven't compared grain patterns but I bet both are cut from the same plank. Seems that we got early Christmas Presents from Kiesel. Enjoy your beautiful guitar! :applause:
