Recently received my new Shopis D'Artagnan model S. Bear spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, walnut neck, trussrod, Miller hardware...I was at Samois a few years ago and tried everything I could get my hands on...this easily stands out as an outstanding guitar. Thanks to Ted G. for his info and encouragement as it's a bit unnerving to order a guitar you have never played. It was worth the wait and more. A friend of mine who has played professionally (he plays a Hahl) said he would by it from me after trying it out a few minutes. It's a keeper. Thanks Rodrigo for a jewel of an instrument.
