Hey Fred,

congratulations on your new guitar - looking forward to read your review or maybe see a video of it :D
I am just curious why you chose cypress for the back and sides. I am thinking myself about one with spruce and cypress, thats why I am asking...

Beautiful guitar. I like the way he executed the transition from the neck to the headstock.

Good choice on cypress. I consider cypress a wildly under appreciated tonewood. The gorgeous, lyrical quality of a great cypress guitar is not to be missed. I'm always happy when I'm working with cypress and im sure you will be too. Congrats on what looks like a stellar guitar

I wanted an alternative other that Brazilian Rosewood and that I already have Rio Rosewood back and sides.

Is that the video on FB of the guitar being played by Tavi Jinariu? If so, the guitar sounds incredible!

It depends how old the video is. If it's days old it will be this one. If it's April - May this year it will be my guitar, if it's from about two years ago it will be our old member Polifemo's.

Well that is cool. Now you know what it is capable of. Getting a demo made by Tavi is good stuff. Sounded very nice to me, congrats!

Wow Fred! That's one of the best sounding cell phone style demo videos I've heard of a classical guitar. You must be bursting with excitement. And Tavi really rocks that backwards baseball cap too :D

Excited for the full report once you've had the new arrival for a while. Congratulations.
