I posted this over in the Acoustic section yesterday, but I know some of you are afraid to go there 😱  Came in yesterday from Sweetwater and I'm lovin' it.  I have a rosewood/spruce dread so thought I would give this iconic mahogany body a try and it is great.  This will probably become #1 as the short scale and neck profile are so comfortable.  Wish I'd bought one 30 years ago, but then of course I would have thought something else would be better.  Flawless work from Bozeman, paperwork indicates it's a custom shop guitar, but website doesn't seem to agree?  Regardless it's great, it is what they refer to as "Hummingbird Original" and has Baggs VTC pickup which works very well.  While it is an undersaddle which can have drawbacks, they built in a compressor and I think they got it right - sounds very accurate plugged in.

Very handsome and you even managed to work the word "iconic" in there.

Well done, enjoy it!

 

It's nice to have an iconic body. 

Yuh. [biggrin]
