I was looking for an MJ (SJ) again. With me being so far away, shipping cost makes out a huge slice of the total price and always is a major consideration.

When this Sitka/Koa baby came my way I didn't think twice - I'm glad I didn't - it is simply an awesome hand built guitar...

Beautiful guitar.  I like how the "redishness?" of the back and sides is carried forward in the top binding and rosette, if that makes any sense.

Still shooting for stardom after all this time.
If I never make it, I'll still be fine.

Thanks +1 and well spotted Kurt - I like the "simple is more" approach on this guitar.
Trevor actually uses Mahogany binding on the fretboard for a perfect match with the neck and the "toffee" colour of the tuner buttons.





Those are Mahogany strips together with the Maple binding on the rosette as well.



Workmanship is flawless and clean



Where do these Canadian builders get these awesome Sitka sound boards though? - in Canada of course!
