    Amazing Build.

    Level of detail and how you made the parts is just humbling.

    Guitar sounds great. Certainly can't buy one like this!

    It's going to be very hard to vote again this year.

    Cheers

    My favorite detail is the cherry pit switch knob.

    It's the kind of guitar I'd expect to come across in the Fender Custom Shop calendar. Extraordinary.

    Absolutely cherry build MTC!! I love the everything about it, from the way you harvested the wood the attention to detail and your artistic blend on the whole cherry theme. Sounds great too! Congrats on a amazing build!

    Ya know, I've never been a fan of cherry bursts because they always seem over-done. The burst you applied is perfect! I would own this guitar in a second. Pup tone is excellent as well. Really well done!

    I think there should be a Ms. Pac Man at the 12th fret eating the cherries.
