    Just received this in trade. I emailed Glenn, who was kind enough to reply with info about the build. It's a prototype, and his personal guitar for a time.

    Cool flame walnut top, and beautiful ebony on the headstock! Weighs about 6.5 lbs.

    It's a small, carve-top body, a great felling small neck, and a slightly short scale 24.6"--like the young child of a Les Paul and SG. :D

    Ovation Ultra GP-ish. Nothing wrong with that at all! :beer

    Congrats on your new guitar!

    Nice! Glenn's a great guy. His asymmetrical neck carve feels great in the hands. Enjoy!

    So that's it! I could tell the neck was smaller than I usually go for, but it feels so good.
