I got to play the burst SF over at Gabe's place. It's another great guitar. The action was perfect. It had a very even and balanced tone, very similar to the black SF in overall tone but even more balanced. (After NAMM) I doubt it will need anything but a cleaning: your guitars are built like tanks. The SF can take a beating like nothing I've seen and not need any adjustment whatsoever. Really a great design. (Ede Wright via text)

Rick!! Been jamming on this guitar since we got back! Invited some friends over to check it out and they love it. Ede stopped by for a bit and brought the other two Spearfish guitars. Don has been awesome to have! Gonna head to the school soon. Can't wait to show this guitar to as many people as I can!!! It's so special. Ahhhhh the tone is so unreal. Got a performance class tonight so gonna test it out with a band!! (Gabe Lopez via text)
