Bob Singer's Notes: I don't need to go into a lot of detail on this guitar; just one statement. OUT OF ALL THE GUITARS, I'VE BOUGHT, SOLD, DESIGNED AND/OR ORDERED - THIS HAS THE BEST SOUND AND THE EASIEST TO PLAY OUT OF ANY OF THEM!
In the video Aaron describes this as Madagascar - it's not; it's Macassar Ebony (though sounds like Brazilian Rosewood!).
