    Wow, what a piece of art! I'd like to give big hands to Michael and Floyd for this stunning charity guitar.

    This guitar turned out beautiful. I had a nice chat with both Michael and Floyd at Experience regarding this guitar...I had no idea this would be how sweet it turned out!!

    Michael is a great guy. An avid outdoorsman, so I’m not surprised. What a kind gesture.

    Gorgeous. I can’t resist observing that this guitar is ‘for the birds’.

    “That was pretty lame, Les.”

    “I know. But someone had to do it.”

    Remarkable guitar, and remarkable generosity for a good cause.

    I'd swap out the switch tip for a small woodland mouse, but that's just me. ;)

    Yes, at first glance "USA ONLY" looked like "LISA ONLY".

    Incredible guitar and wonderful guy!

    At least it doesn't CLINT ONLY.

    In all seriousness, this is a wonderful gesture by Michael and Floyd. Not only is he a nice guy, but Michael happens to be the best wood buying in the industry!
