    Fhodshon,

    Oh man... Congrats on your new baby. She's a beauty. You always have such nice instruments. I dig MTDs and Zons. You have both. I don't. :meh:

    Happy playing...

    Joe

    PS. I enjoy the sound files of your Zons. I hope to hear one of your MTD soon.

    Flamed redwood... secks. Extremely classy instrument you go there.

    Edit: Just noticed the neck... Awesome. I love how unfinished wenge feels.

    Congrats, fred. Now comes the fun part... exploring that puppy and figuring out what it'll do.

    Hint: just about anything:D

    BTW I use DR Sunbeam Nickel strings on mine. Excellent combination.
