I ordered this a few months ago and it arrived today. It is fabulous! Specs: alder body, claro walnut top, 5 piece maple neck with padauk strings, and an unlined katalox fingerboard. Norstrand Np4a and Big Split pickups. Passive electonics VVT. It is very responsive to touch, dynamic and articulate. It is going to expose all the flaws in my technique :) Pics:

Thanks everyone. A quality instrument makes you want to play more and then hopefully better :)
