    Shawn has treated us to a wonderful journey. Highs and even greater highs.

    Sad as it sounds, I watched the CNC carving videos several times in awe. Now that is unicorn stuff!

    I can relate to that journey and I think we can all relate to the overwhelming elation he must be feeling.

    Hopefully it’s not too long to your next “milestone” guitar?!

    That’s more beautiful than the other pics. Simply...wow.
    You forgot to post the video. I’m sure it’s just an oversight. I’ll wait here for the post correction...

    Ok @Shawn@PRS the sound clips are needed, otherwise this is the sound I’m hearing in my mind!



    I’m just kidding. But seriously dude, we need to hear this beast! Pleeeeaaaase!!:D

    It’s all @bodia ‘s fault, he planted the seed!
