    She's the one!
    She sounds like heaven to my ears. So nice under my fingers like we know each other from a long time. She's got a perfect balance between flames and plain depending on the angle you look at her. Pure gold!

    Are you serious? Really? I thought the Mojo was in them only??? and I fear that if I take them off, half the value of the guitar is going away...:rofl:

    Classy! Congrats! :beer:

    So are you already in love with it, or you are still waiting for the TH for a comparison?

    Congrats. Looks like you found yourself a keeper. Btw, you reckon you can post some closeup pictures of the fretboard?

    A keeper, absolutely! Thanks
    Sure, I'll do that tomorrow if you don't mind. The fretboard color is really light. I know many prefer the darker ones, but in this case I think it really matches the top's color, making the whole thing more consistent.
