How does it sound? I think it will look even better with some sweaty patina from a happy owner.

Well chosen name, a very apt description of the guitar's beauty.

That's gorgeous Jason. I especially love the headstock but really the whole guitar is seductive. Well done.

Beautiful work Jason. I've always wanted to try one of your guitars as I suspect they have a beautiful traditional tone. In what ways have you found the Madagascar RW to influence the tone compared to other back/sides you have used?

I must have been tired last night...or dyslexic...or perhaps just getting old. It's actually Sol Y Luna.

Thanks for all the kind words. I'm really happy with how the guitar turned out; brilliant trebles, rich basses, with clarity and balance. It's well worth it to get the best quality spruce you can obtain.
