I want to give a shout out to a few sources of inspiration:

Sheldon Schwarts for the sound holes
Tom Bills for the neck/body geometry
Tyler Robbins for the truss rod cover

That's totally amazing!!! The poly urethane looks great. I guess you have a good method of applying it, seems like most people are afraid of witness lines. You don't seem to have any problem at all. Beautiful beautiful beautiful.

How do you like those fanned frets and holes everywhere?

It plays very easily and is my favorite sounding guitar I've ever built.

Nice! This is now on my bucket list to do after I'm familiar with building some generic guitars.

Never slow down and never look back eh Chris. There's so much beautiful workmanship and design going on I won't even begin to comment! I will say that Curly Blond on Black is sooooooo very sexy! Thanks for posting!

Cheers My Friend!

That is a great sounding guitar with a lot of modern features beautifully executed and combined in a way that they all work together in a masterful design. [clap] Using woods found in orchestral instruments and the black/white contrasts adds a classical formality to it. So what will be your next oeuvre?

I'm not moved much anymore by most guitars, having seen so many of them. But the integrity of design in this is about as close to perfect as it gets.
