This is a beautiful guitar - big warm open sound that comes from her design and the choice of wood. The soundboard is top grade German Spruce and the back is top grade European fiddleback maple. It has the top soundport, Shelley's new and very playable neck profile. (a very slightly smaller than standard "c" profile) and curly Koa binding
This was my main rig till I started building. With the upgrades it was $4,200 without the case and that was before she raised her base price to $4k. This guitar would run $5k at her current prices.
It has one very small ding in the binding - other than that - it is mint.
You get one chance to enjoy this day, but if you're doing it right, that's enough.
