Re: I'm sick!!
Congrats. Fair warning though, with a board that clean, a fair amount of play time and you'll start wearing through the clear on the board. It will cause cloudy spots, especially in the lower frets from chords. To most people it's probably not a big deal. For me, I can deal with a few chips and dings but the dark spots drove me nuts. The maple is noticably brighter to the ears than the rosewood too. See how it goes for you. I'm no longer a fan of the maple board on anything. Much prefer ebony or a dark rosewood. Anyway, PLAY IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!
