Got some pixs and would love to share them to you all.

The custom tenor that Herb own is also great. He told me that it has spruce top with ebony back and side.
Really nice looking and the sound is sweet.

I didn't know the bridge is screwed in under the saddle...I guess you don't have to worry about the bridge coming off!!
