Hi Ed.

Received the guitar today. It arrived in excellent condition. It is beautiful. I CC'd you a copy of an email I sent to Jim Triggs. I think it sums up my satisfaction as a customer. Thank you for taking such great care of me on this purchase.  Feel free to use my name as a referral if would like. I am very pleased with every facet of this purchase. 

Man.....what a beautiful guitar.


Thanks Dave

I'm glad you are pleased, That guitar is the first one that myself and Jim Triggs co-conspired on, I would have loved to have kept it myself !!! As it stands I already own too many guitars. Oh well,  I hope you love it !!!
