Sorry for my guitar stand arm getting in the way of some of the quilt shots... it's all I have to work with for a stand at the moment. I think Carvin did a phenomenal job of picking out a quilt similar to what I sent them. I love it MORE than the picture I sent actually. They simply exceded my highest expectations with this build.

The guitar plays beautifully and I absolutely love it. Action is super low, buzz free, and most importantly, issue-free. :) I've waiting a long time for this moment, and I couldn't be happier!

EDIT:
I just realized the pics above don't really capture how much flame/figuring the flame maple fretboard has as the sun was really bright. So here's a shot from my phone trying to capture it:

Wow! That is an exceptional quilt. I love how the figuring below the bridge is like a wake in the ocean. Congrats!

That's freaking awesome! That's pretty cool they'll try and match a similar figured piece of wood. I had no idea you could do that with them.

Thanks everyone!

Yeah it was an up-charge, but they will try and do the best they can to match a color or wood figuring picture you send them with whatever they have in stock at the moment. I'm grateful they had such a sick piece of quilt laying around. :)
