    I've never played a spruce but I do have redwood on the Iriguchi and that should provide a good apples-to-pears comparison based on the the tuning they will both be sporting (more on that later). I'm also curious to see how it compares to WRC but that's on the baritone so not quite as close a comparison.

Perry and Terry are amazing builders.

The curly maple binding certainly adds beauty. Are the edges rounded over rather than sharp L as on most instruments?
    Yes Bill the edges do have a slight round over we think it makes for a nice feel. And thank you for the kind words
