Check out the Suhr Reb Beach Koa thats at Sounds Great in Manchester, UK.

It's on my Santa list, but I'm not holding up too much hope

I got my Jem at Sounds Great - I think I'll going to have to trade it in for a Suhr or Tyler. Those guitars are just too beautiful

Re: Koa Appreciation Thread (for Jim777)

DAMN! That's just crazy looking! Is that a Double O body or a Triple O? I bet it sounds amazing.

Re: Koa Appreciation Thread (for Jim777)

WOW, some of those Koa finishes are awesome. Great thread btw

Hey 4koa, thanks for the Thorn link, that looks like some great work on those guitars. Btw, how much do they sell for?
