Played “The Beast” this morning at church and got quite a few compliments not only on the look but the sound. It played remarkably well! When I first got there to tune, I plugged it into my amp without adjusting my amp down and hit the first note and about deafened myself. Had to turn my amp down by half and still got the same sound output if not slightly more. I am extremely happy with it! Thank you” ~ NLR

“I got a call today that it arrived so I picked it up after work. I could see the huge box at the back of the store from the sidewalk outside! The box appeared fine and there was no evidence of anything having fallen on it or piercing it. I got it home and unpacked and unpacked and unpacked. Great job ,very thorough. 

I first noticed the cedar top with the lighter hue in the center section, it reminds me of an old guitar as if it has been played for years. That cedar is a good combination with the walnut as it sounds great and is very big sounding as it came across on Jays video. I’m very happy with it ….. Thanks again for the beautiful instrument.” ~ GB

  1. Hi Acorn,
    The bass looks fabulous and the stripes thru the neck look great. What was the material you used to face the headstock?
