This is en route to me. Im hoping the top is exactly as presented to me in pictures. I bought it from a very reputable dealer and I have a feeling they wouldn't misrepresent the guitar. When I saw this too, I immediately went to buy it. It was close to $7k!!!

I know that's in the middle of what some people spend on guitars like these but this top was really up my alley.

Congratulations. That top pops right out. Beautiful. When you find that "one" top, the price goes right out the window. If you think about it rationally, it only works out to filling up your car once a week for a year. It used to take almost three years of gas. :thumb:

What a great top. You get what you pay for. I’d have no regrets with that guitar. It’s a keeper for life. Enjoy!

It's only money, you can't take it with you, and the hours upon hours of joy you'll have playing it will amortize the cost easily. Have fun! Awesome top!

Absolutely beautiful guitar but I'm going to say out loud what many are thinking; that's a lot of dough to pay for a guitar you haven't been in the same room with (and quite probably the same state).
