Having now played the guitar for a few days I'd like to make the following comment on it.
I have played guitar for 36 years, mostly electrics, but I have come across a few acoustics during that time as well.
This is a serious, professional grade instrument. The sound has wonderful, complex harmonies and a nice internal echo follows a note - something that I always search for. I have played some Martins and this is up to the very same level. And what a beauty this is. Thank you very much,
I also made a little book to document (in Finnish) the build. Here is a link to it:

|The 12th fret inlay is a mosaic tube pin with abalone center. These pins are sold at knife making stores.|
|The headstock has a somewhat bold inlay, my first ever made, and thus not too closely pictured here... J and K are the initials of the player, L stands for Roman 50.|
