Having recently sold my Moon dread & Martin HD28 I'm expecting delivery tomorrow of a 000 Moon which should complement my 2 Gibson slope dreads nicely (leaving me some decent change as well!). I've changed Jimmy's stock spec to match the Gibson scale & nut widths that I like. Here's the spec:

MOON Model-0003 – LEFT HAND
• Indian Rosewood back & sides
• Alaskan Sitka Spruce soundboard
• Mahogany neck
• Ebony fingerboard
• Ebony headplate
• Ebony bridge
• Abalone rosette – triple ring
• White binding
• Inner b/w/b purfling
• Pearl fret markers
• Tortoiseshell scratchplate
• Grover V97 machine heads
• Bone Nut & Saddle
• Side dots
• Tusq bridge pins
• Width at nut: 1.725”
• 24.75”Scale
• Strings: Elixir .012 - .054
• Finish: Natural Gloss
With Hiscox case

2014 Larrivee All-Hog Parlour (on order)
2014 Ken Miller short scale slope dread
2011 Gibson "New Vintage" Southern Jumbo
2012 Gibson "True Vintage" Hummingbird
2008 Fender Telecaster

Take it easy & I'll see you on the dark side of the moon...............

Sounds great. I've heard great things about Jimmy Moon and have often considered having him make me a guitar. Be sure to post pics when you get it.
Have cut back on my equipment do to circumstance. Just my #1 Gibson Les Paul Standard just now. No amps, no pedals.

Jimmy makes an awesome guitar. My RD3 dread was wonderful but sadly I commissioned it when playing mainly fingerstyle so ordered a 46mm nut which I found very tough once I'd switched mainly to flatpicking/Bluegrass & as a high end custom build represented too much tied up cash to keep.

I'm originally from Glasgow and he is very well known and respected. Perhaps some day I will be lucky enough to own my own moon built to my own specifications.

Congratulations! I've heard lots of glowing reports of Moon's guitars!

You must be over the moon (sorry) :)
