    Amazing story, and a beautiful guitar.

    That's a FOREVER guitar if I've ever seen one.

    The only thing better than a sick guitar is a sick guitar with a story. This one is legend.

    Nice one Pete, that is a very special guitar. But you don’t really need me to say that!

    I can understand why you drove 10 hours for it.

    In all seriousness, that top, despite the beautiful inlay work, has an absolutely exquisite book matching job. When I see one like this, I imagine the surprise on the worker’s face when it comes off the saw table, they open it up, and see how lucky they were. This one is a 1 in 1000, maybe.

    It's ok that I choke up a bit when reading that story, right?

    That’s a magnificent guitar, and I love the backstory. I also admire that you’re a perfectly sane person who makes a plan and sticks to it.

    As I’ve said many times, I make guitar buying decisions in a more chaotic way.

    Me too.
    When I come home with a new guitar:
    "Why does this keep happening to me?"

    Great story, Pete, and that's an absolutely beautiful guitar. You can bring it by the house and we can make a 12 Days Of Kissmas video with it...
