    So, I actually received this a few months back, but I've been far too busy playing it to actually get around to write out this NGD. It also doesn't help that I'm absolute trash at writing anything meaningful. But with the superb work done by Mr. Chris Delia of Carillion guitars, I feel I absolutely owe it to him and the guitar playing world to share this.

    First thing is first though. Here's some porn:

    I'll start with the crappy cellphone pics for authenticity's sake.

    And a few of the Pro shots for those who haven't seen

    I assure you, those pictures really don't do this guitar justice. It's truly marvelous and captivating to see in person!
    What's even better is it sounds just as good, if not better than it looks!

    Chris was everything and more when it comes to what one should expect from a boutique guitar builder. Fantastic communication, incredibly helpful with suggestions, and super open about everything happening with the build. He's also always up for a good challenge :p It's very clear when speaking to him that he truly does love his work, and it really shows in all the wonderful attention to detail. This guitar is absolutely seamless and I have been hard-pressed to find any flaw (and trust me, I've looked at the guitar quite a bit).

    My only regret is that I suck at writing anything beyond "Dur, this guitfiddle shur is purdy and sonds gud. H'yup!" But honestly, if you're considering ordering a Carillion, I would highly recommend you pull the trigger! You absolutely won't be disappointed.

    It has been a while since I last heard anything about Carillion, I had almost forgotten they exist. Yours looks great, HNGD !

    Also, full frontal pictures are mandatory, and I'm not seeing one. Boo.

    :lol:

    I remember seeing this on their instagram. Super cool. Their neck carves always look so comfortable.
