I haven't had one of Laurie's guitars in the shop in years, and I've really missed them. He's building at the top of the single-luthier game, and this guitar is a great example. Love the ancient Kauri used here - the top has an almost 3D colorful shimmer in some lighting. The dual bevel is really cool too, and makes for an extremely comfortable playing experience. Plays great, with wonderful tactile feedback. Comes with original hardshell case.

Cosmetically, this guitar is in very good condition. There's a ding on the binding, with a bit of wear around it. Otherwise just minor signs of handling - polish swirls, that kind of thing.
