I plan to retire in the next year or two, so this was probably my last shot at getting a high-end guitar. I was fortunate enough to own a Goodall Koa Concert Jumbo years ago, and it was stellar. I thought I had to have a cutaway, so I sold it. Huge mistake. This one is an East Indian Rosewood Concert Jumbo with master grade bearclaw German spruce top, ebony fretboard with ebony binding, ebony bridge and pins, curly koa body and headstock binding and backstrip, abalone rosette, mother of pearl fretboard inlays, Gotoh 510 tuners with ebony buttons, Ameritage case with humidity control. Pics are from the thumb drive that came with the guitar. I'm truly blessed.

That's a beauty Mike. If this guitar sounds as good as it looks, you will find many hours of pleasure.

Thank you all very much.

Doug, I'm working on Tommy Emmanuel's "Saltwater" at the moment, so I plan for that to be my first recording with this beauty.

We’ll be looking forward to your posts.   OBTW, if you need a guitar ‘walker/exerciser’ during vacations we can work something out!  😎

Congratulations, Mike!  What a beauty.  You now have even yet another reason to looking forward to retirement: more time to spend with that gorgeous instrument.  

We are all looking forward to hearing that recording.

Congrats Mike- Beauty! I used that excuse of retiring and needing to buy another guitar while I could afford it! I ended up retiring three times 😀 True story!

And remember the Number One rule in guitar playing - Don't be a quitter:
