I like that the neck was tinted to a colour that at least approximates the koa back of the guitar. On the koa 200s from a few years ago, the maple necks were usually left blonde, which was quite 'stark'.

 

When I ordered my koa 200, I specified a mahogany neck, in part to avoid the maple-koa look. But this one is nicely done!

Hey there Wily - Thought your days with the louds were over.

It's ideal to have both. The pendulum does it.

A fancy guitar it is.

When you get older, your hearing starts to go, and you need the guitar to be louder just so you can hear what you are playing....... [biggrin]

Let me know when you guys are going to do this, as I will be back in SF on the 26th for about two weeks, and would love to hear these guitars. Actually staying in Oakland rather than SF this time.

 

Nick, where in Oakland?

 

I'd really like to get together with Wily and his Koa-Axe... I can't imagine his J200 is a CANNON!

 

I think my son is coming over this Sunday, (I'll have to ask), so Saturday might be open.

 

The week of the 26th I have to do to a dinner for a special cancer drug on The Hornet!

HAHA! I was goin' to warn you NOT to 'go for a walk' at night there..... If you're stayin' at the airport, you're probably okay..... Jack London Square/Village is relatively safe...but any hotel on Broadway you're gonna want to stay inside!

 

If you're on MacArthur, you might as well bring your flack vest.

Well, I'll be at the Waterfront Hotel at Jack London Square, so I guess I'll be relatively safe. Of course, all of Oakland probably looks like dangerous territory to a guy who lives in Danville....... [biggrin]
