Eric's comments:

"Clint, Jo is just stunning, both visually and sonically. Once again you have gone the extra mile for me, and the result is amazing! The sound is lush and resonant; the added sound options from the parallel/series switching make this a very versitile instrument. And the fit and finish are just fantastic! I can't say enough about the beauty of the top, combined with the gold hardware; the carved pickup rings just add to the sense of lushness.

She's a great beauty, and sounds so big and resonant that I can't imagine I'll ever need another guitar with humbuckers; you've really outdone yourself, and I'm proud to own one of the last instruments you've made."
