Wow - that one has got a lot going on! You must have some vivid dreams at night imagining the combinations of materials that you re going to put together.

This is the 6th instruemnt these clients have commisioned from me and they do have an eye for this sort of thing. Does keep me having to work out something similar but different in order to build the family of instruments they are looking for.

Ambrosia is a freaky piece of natural beauty, much like our Sassafras!!
Bedazzling bling box, Well crafted Allen!
What make of tuners are those?
