Woah, thats beautiful!

Gotta love the look of those spalted maple tops. I've got a few of the new Roxbury guitars in stock with spalted tops, looks killer.

Gongratulations!

I'm glad to hear you got what you ordered. I can imagine the agony and also the relief when you saw that everything was as it should be.

Enjoy your new guitar!

wildchild == lucky

that's a real beauty.
:evil:

however, the SM top at LS185 price still does not compute for me.
too cheap (or really, really lucky ..... or Liviu?)?

so where the hell did you get it from? I am really curious. :o

Very nice...
On a side note if you've seen an Ovation Adamas acoustic then you've seen spalted maple before...
They use it for the soundhole facia on the upper bout. :D
