I might get in trouble here but I like Simon's designs better. Toone has really impressive and very original elements but, subjectively, I think Simon ties complete instruments together with aesthetics I prefer.
Thanks! I really like the way the grain curves to echo the belly cut - and he did a great job grain matching the control cover. This is the first one with a one-piece body. It did add a little weight but I think it's worth it.
I used to be a bit of a toone fanboy (mostly of his earlier work like starfish/dove) but I agree, simon has more aesthetically pleasing modern designs. Toone's aesthetic has just devolved into lumpy reclaimed wood bolted onto chunks of metal. For the kind of money toone wants I'd rather not have my guitar look like driftwood.
