    WOW! That looks great. Very interesting hybrid approach to the construction:

    "Bent laminate sides; center block; spruce coupling; carved top & back laminated with fancy maple; sides will be maple lam as well. neck, center block and back are Spanish cedar; top is redwood or spruce."

    I mean, there are undiscovered tribes in the Amazonian rainforest who sit around discussing his latest finish on an Apollo Reserve Stock.
