Very very nice! Congratulations! That top with the herringbone rosette looks wonderful! I never tried a guitar with Zebrawood, looks interesting! It seems to be a very hard and heavy wood, some luthiers say it's very hard to work with. So kudos to your luthier!

Nice, enjoy it! That zebrawood back looks like the hair of my wife in the sunshine. And I like the inlays!

A slope-shoulder dread. Very Cool! I like the book-matched bear claw in the soundboard. Congratulations!

TMG, that's really sweet. I've never seen a zebrawood guitar before... I have that wood in a briefcase that was made for me back in the 1980s... As Tom asked, does it sound as good as it looks????? Dang!

Oh, and I really like the bear claw Adirondack top. Yum yum!
