    Awesome. Was it just built for you? If so, what was the production number? I want to know what number they are up to now. Cheers...

    hahaha - no it's the "right" direction :D:D - Joey told me that they haven't built more than 20 leftys since they've started so I have now more than 10 % of the world-wide lefty stock with my 2 ones :p

    Wow! :eek: Congratulations, Jules! I really like the top on that. It's very elegant and understated at the same time.

    All the best with it! Enjoy!


    cheers,

    thanks guys

    this is what I've thought - I knew that I wanted Chestnut and for me this top that I've chosen has all the characteristics of Chestnut - that typical swirls - on it. So I'm happy that it turned out that way :hyper:

    I'm very curious of the sound :p

    One of the better-looking tops I've seen. Very classy. What's the tone wood?
