Lorenzo's been having trouble finding people to do the job *right*. Mine 
is a
chamberd spruce which a former finisher had dropped something onto, and 
than fix the very small ding, he simply laquered over it... But it's a
wonderful, natural color. First time my wife's ever seen a guitar and said 
looks nice". My four year old son was there when it came, and he looked at 
and said, "daddy, why did David Torn send you his guitar?" Trans-trem, same
pickup config as Kim's, but with standard electronics. And I'm running 
through a
Mesa Maverick, and, yeah, it sounds amazing. My two jammen are getting a 
like they've never had before!!!

Right, back to loopage now.
