    Beautiful instrument! How many punds of flesh did you have to part with for that?

    I think Myka is one of my absolute favorite builders. The spruce double cut he built a while back is jaw dropping gorgeous.

    That is a gorgeous guitar. Congrats.

    David does do amazing work; I've always admired the Sungazers as being particularly beautiful and unique.

    There is no excess panel for the electronics. Duh... you have to have a lot more faith then I do.

    You see an excess panel under the electronics? Then you do have better eyes.

    It's a really unnecessarily large and/or "bling-y" panel.

    Alex,

    All I said is I see an access panel - since I do not see a piezo and I did not think Bartolini are active pickups and need a battery. That is an access panel, most probably for the electronics.

    Either way, I am sure David, like Matt Artinger who built my guitar (with no access panel) will take care of any issues, if I could not do them myself. After all that is part of what you are paying for with these guitars :BEER.

    Anyway, it is all good with me and nothing personal :phones. David seems a great person who does some amazing work and asuming I had the dollars I would be honered to have one of his guitars - w/o the worry of electronics access :).

    Take care,

    John

    Yup that's why I said you have more faith than I do. It is gorgeous I always liked both lace wood and Koa.
