    I’m eagerly awaiting more of your great photos and the accompanying write up. Congratulations on a stunning guitar!
    The best way I could describe the difference is that the X500 is a great guitar. The AA is a stellar guitar.

    What now blows me away is that I've read from multiple people now something to the effect of this being among the least favorable era for AAs.

    The X500 made me lust for an X700. This AA makes me wonder how a Benedetto could possibly be any better.

    Gary, were you able to keep all your bodily functions operational while it was being shipped?..... unless you picked it up?
    I would have had restless nights, and busy days in the bathroom.
