            i bet it does, i had a dc-5 that blew me away once, but it only cost me 400 dollars, and i put it on ebay for 800 and sold it in 20 minutes, damn my greed.

                That is one sweet guitar, a shame nobody will buy it, just goes to show how hard pressed people are for cash these days. I'm not a big fan of reverse headstocks ( strictly a visual preference ) but I'm so in favor of small luthiers like yourself and the work you do, if I had the cash right now instead of 20+ guitars I'd take it off your hands.

                  haha, thats why im more down for trades than straight cash. its must easier for me to sell a gibson, and the customer isnt out any money. everyone wins.
