My god, this is a beautiful instrument! And the burnt finish color is just as I had pictured; perfect. And it is louder than I had imagined, I love it! The tone is strong and rich. Thank you two so very much, I am truly enjoying this first hour I've been playing around with it. I think I will most definitely get attached to this one for years to come. Thank you for being so cooperative with my request and at the incredible speed that it arrived.
