Beautiful guitars, and I seriously contemplated picking one up. However, after some introspection, I just realized I'm not into a guitar that's that ornate, nor does it really have the features and wood combos I want. I'm not into vine inlays, gold hardware, pearloid, etc. Beautiful, but not my thing.
You'll get the email in a couple days, I'm finishing up the evil paperwork that has to be done this time of year, then I'll be ready to start firing these out.
They're superb. The nut radius match of this new thru mount 7 nut is just perfect, which is a huge quality improvement on it's own!!, and the wound strings are strobe intonated perfect right out of the box. I checked every one, and this should mean the next batch of VWH's are fixed also and will intonate now, I hope. The unwounds were a little flat so I set a couple just to make sure they do, and while it's a different intonation pattern than the typical UV, they intonate perfect. The lo pro radius probably too flat as usual, but that can be corrected.
The worst piece of rosewood of the 9 would be top shelf on any guitar, everything from black to dark chocolate with deep redish highlights. Fretwork reminds me of older Prestige. They are very nice.
