Very classy looking. Was it custom because of the rosette?

Yeah, I wanted the sand rosette with the slotted headstock.

I chose to forego flashy abalone or other such extras. I wanted it subtle and to have the wood speak for itself. Keeps the costs down too ;)

Wow that is so nice, I love my KPE Tenor which has some of the spec yours has, but your headstock and rosette are fantastic.
I bet it sounds amazing, congrats Steve.

Congratulations! I have a stock Kanile'a T1 tenor and the sound is incredible. Try stringing it up with Living Water and you will have found Nirvana!
