Nice to finally put a face to the voice. I was praying while watching that you wouldn't bang the guitar up against something! :lol:

Looks great. Sounds great. Can't wait until tomorrow.

Leo, i'm glad you took that screw comment the way it was meant !! As a fellow luthier, your eyes are drawn to stuff like that, it's a curse !! That is one REALLY nice guitar, i mean REALLY NICE !!! Be proud of that workmanship and congratulations jalevinemd on your new guitar . I'd love to see more pictures of that one.

The guitar arrived safely today. Haven't had the time to really enjoy it yet and put it through its paces. The Y-cable I'm having made should be ready tomorrow.

Looking at the guitar, it's quite obvious how much time and effort went into the construction. How he managed to get the brass strips on the top to follow the intricate body carving is beyond me. I realize it's only the second Tiger he's done, but Leo really did a phenomenal job. I've no doubt that as his experience as a luthier continues to grow, his creations will become even more wonderful.

Leo was great to work with throughout the project and I would recommend him (without the slightest hesitation) to anyone looking for one of these Jerry tributes.

More to come...
