    I got this yesterday from my ex-employer South Austin Music!
    It’s light and lovely.
    I have a gig in Schulenburg, Tx this evening, so it will get a proper audition.
    Looking forward to it!

    Cool guitar but what's with the bridge? Why not just use a one piece vintage style? I don't get it.

    It is a unique and uncommon toploader.
    The Elite line was discontinued and many of it’s features scrapped along with the line.
    I’ll know what I think about it after I play tonight.
    Right now, it plays beautifully (I just finished “my” setup on it).
    She’s a looker!

    Beautiful guitar. Took me a minute to even notice the bridge because the top looks so nice.

    Lovely guitar! Unusual bridge and pup set up, but still looks very cool. Hope the gig goes/went well.
