    That's beautiful man. I love redwood burl. It'll probably go on my Nordy SC6. Congrats!

    I think that redwood burl is my favorite top. That is beautiful. Enjoy it!

    I have a wonderful wife too... she is extremely understanding regarding my gas pains :D

    Hey Vince,
    Yeah, that's the one.
    I've been dealing with David (nice guy) for some time now and when that one came along I grabbed it very quickly.
    They sell quick on that website, man, every time I've called on one -it's sold... but not this one, it'll be at my door on Friday. Regards

    The last call I got from the place I'd ordered was, "it should be here by the end of the year". Of course, he and I were both laughing about that comment but that's the official word. It would have to arrive today and would have to then be sent out today, 2-day air in order for me to get it by the end of the year. I'm doubting that.

    On the plus side, Fodera's estimates are getting shorter and they're finally using the "S" word ("ship") so it does seem to be a positive move forward. I could handle it being a birthday present for me, 1/16 ;)

    As soon as it comes, pics will be up. I plan on not feeling very well the day it arrives ;)

    Meh, here I go hijacking another Fodera thread. Errr, ummm... love that redwood top! :D
