I received the LS-17 #A727 yesterday. I have to say it truly is the finest instrument I have ever played. Hands down. The playability and the sound are just a dream and the craftsmanship is simply out of this world. I have played some very nice guitars and the LS-17 is clearly above the rest.
Absolutely stunning in every way, and relatively affordable as well. The only reason this guitar is going to break me financially is because who wants to go to work and earn a living when you have a guitar like this sitting at home waiting to be played? Builders don't get enough credit for what they contribute to the history of jazz. But you, Roger, have truly made your mark in keeping jazz guitar alive and exciting.
