Very nice... although the rear headstock laminates and pickup covers aren't to my taste, it'll do I suppose!

That's an amazing piece of work. Though I wouldn't know whether it should be played or hung on the wall as decoration. It's a crying shame that the control cavity cover is plastic when he's done all that work on the wooden bridge, rear facing, and pickup cover.

Looking sharp! It's very brown! But also very exotic. Reminds me of a Carl Thompson crossed with a Benavente.

I'm not so keen on the relative narrowness of the body where it joins the neck though. I realise it's a 9 string and you need to make it manageable, I'm just commenting on the aesthetics.

Have you had a chance to try it out?

No disrespect to the luthier and the customer but it does not do anything for me.
Nice looking wood though.

Agree'd - whenever I see a singlecut I just think 'John Merrick' for some reason.

Looks beautifully put together though - someones going to love it.
