Wow! I bet it sounds as good as it looks. And again, WOW!

Hot Dog! This is the first piece of EIR that makes me want to reconsider this tonewood for my next guitar. Unless it is more expensive than Cocobolo.

gorgeous color

amazing,wish I could hearit.

That is the most beautiful color!

Love the burst!

Getting back to you now that I have had some time to play the OMG.  This is a superb guitar.  It delights my eyes and ears each time I pick it up.  The build is perfect, and elegantly ‘simple’ as we designed it together.  The gold Gotoh tuners and Brazilian bridge are stand-outs as evidence that this guitar is something special.  I have had many high-end small shop and luthier built guitars over the years.  The is perhaps the best of them all.  It sounds just like the way I described I wanted it; a 6th string that is resonant and deep even with the capo at the 5th fret.  Trebles that ring like bells, and the perfect amount of sustain and overtones.  I could not ask for more.  Gives me goosebumps sometimes when I listen to it.  I’m not parting with this one. Thank you again for all your help.
