    Ray, That guitar is going to be Drop Dead Gorgeous when it is finished my friend! I can only imagine the tone of that beautiful Redwood top with the ABW back and sides. Well Done man Well Done! Also from what it sounds like you have been through over the past year you do deserve this and don't let anyone ever tell you any different. The ability to make music with an instrument that you truly love and cherish is a Gift and on more than one occasion has saved me from Darker times in my life. If you think about it you can go 10 years without hearing a song but when you do hear it again you can immediately recall where you were, what was going on, and even the smell in the air at the time you first heard it. Nothing else in life can put things into perspective like a good song can. The ability to create those songs and play the way you do is a blessing. Music heals all wounds and crosses all boundaries my friend. That is an Amazing instrument that you will always know is yours and no one else's. I hope you enjoy it for a long time to come and may it allow you to get lost in the moment on more than one occasion. Have a good one man. It is good to hear from you and even better to hear you are getting your guitar finished!

    I have to ask for old times sake, Sound Clip?

    Thanks Tx that was nice of you to say .

    My mother on the other hand just let me have it about buying it fully bringing the guilt on how I'm depriving my son along saying I'm a lier about not letting it go which I never said I would do I not throwing thousands of dollars away . This was a catch 22 where you danged if you do and danged if you don't .
    Good Ol Ma told me two weeks ago to drop 4g on a new truck instead of spending 500 bucks fix the one I got . So it's just matter perspective living in there world .

    I'm still fighting the smile with glee or cry with guilt when I get her in my hands .

    I just want peace and the ability to find happiness with in my little corner of this earth and share my heart sone which is my music . I know I'm a great player but bet a million bucks if I made money at mom would have a different opinion about it .

    It's hard for after this because my budget like so many other folks will be extremely tight . I figured fir me to afford my home proper I'm 15,000 bucks a year underplayed .

    So regardless of the money in hand spent now for this guitar of something else once it's gone it's gone .

    I think I won't loss any value on this guitar or very little unlike a new over priced ride or other .

    Well, like ex-wives and girlfriends.
    They all had their cost.
    And were hopefully worth every penny even if no longer in our lives.
