    Here's the latest addition to the family, due in tomorrow, and I can't wait! Semi-hollow, and my wife Joy thought up the rose cut...Pickups are WCR Darkbursts wound on stabilized Koa bobbins...

    Congrats Steve! that guitar is very sweet. Beautiful KOA, with everything how you wanted it. Rose design "F-hole" nice touch. KOA/Limba/Thorn = top shelf.
