Nice! You went on a "factory tour" and everything...

I'm really looking forward to seeing this thing come together -- the more photos the better -- and of course, hearing it come alive on stage!!

As the previous owner of Leo's first or second Tiger, I only can imagine how amazing this guitar will be now that he has a lot more experience under his belt and information available to him. Don't get me wrong...my guitar was exquisite in every way. It was just a bit too heavy for me and after I got my last custom Alembic, it never got played. Leo is a class act in every sense. You'd be hard pressed to find another luthier who is better to work with on projects like this...and I've worked with quite a few. Can't wait to see the final pictures. :smile:
