wow, what a work of art! don't be put off by the violin style friction tuners. I had them on a banjolele and once you get used to them they are great.

Barry is local here in Atlanta and makes amazingly cool instruments - this is a beauty, Jon, and sounds great. There's a lucky buyer out there somewhere....

I'm intrigued by this. Is it difficult to hold with such a rounded back? That's always been a bit of an issue for me with old Ovation acoustics.
