Thanks, Dave! Got the second custom guard today and..........perfect! Hit the radius just right to expose the inner rings of the rosette on this one. Some might think a blue guitar, let alone a blue Hummingbird, is on the weird side. Me? I like it. It's different but not gaudy.......just right! Thanks again, Dave!

Got to admit that I like that, Buc. I'm truly a traditionalist on guitars, especially "the bird," but I could easily live with that guitar. [thumbup] [thumbup] [thumbup]

I don't think Colorado would have the same effect.

I like it, Buc.

Stage ready. Bought a Colosi bone saddle but I'm kinda liking the sound of the factory one..........an experiment for another day. And I do have an old pair of Tony Lama's with blue tops that match quite well with jeans tucked!

Absolutely gorgeous...it might be an opinion divider but I'd go as far as to say it's one of the most beautiful acoustics I've ever seen.

If they made an identical one as a righty (pickguard and all) it would be next on my shopping list, I can't stop looking at it!

It is a winner for me -- I really like the guard too. Well done.

That look great. Custom finishes often look bland, but that is tasteful and eye catching.
That Texas profile is obvious even to a Brit like me too.

Confession time; I have never played a Humming Bird. [scared] That being said, the color of your guitar hypnotizes me....wow. Cant stop looking at it. Congrats!!
