Thanks, Ken.

It's got a few minor flaws, but all in all I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

Yep. Ebony fretboard, not rosewood.

So very beautiful! The silking under that finish is like Mother Nature's virgin snow at sunrise. To whom is this one going?

Thanks, Paul. Yes, to coin a phrase, 'the silking is strong in this one...'.

This one is going to arumako.

Wow...how fortunate and blessed I feel to have a crack at this 1612. She really is a beauty and Dan's meticulous work is the stuff of legend. I did ask Dan to use the same "Rebuild" label that he used for jays 485 (of course, it doesn't appear in any of the pics that he uploaded, Lol); but folks are going to be asking questions when they see this beauty and I definitely want to have a good explanation!

The timing was perfect too; as a nice drop-off and hand-carry has been arranged - which means delivery in about two-weeks - just can't wait to give her a spin!

She'll be called the "Ovation DSR1612-T4 Custom Balladeer", and I just know I'm going to love this guitar. It would be extremely appropriate to quote something that moody, p.i. said on Dan's 1978 1117-4 Rebuild thread and I quote,

"If you are thinking of asking Dan to work on a guitar, know that his work is worth a lot more than he charged me. Pay what he asks. It's worth it."

I'll check back into this thread when I take delivery! Thanks Dan!

That's quite a mouthful, Ken. Doesn't exactly trip lightly off the tongue. LOL!

Kidding aside, you're very welcome. I'm looking forward to hearing your impressions once you get it in your hands.

Was just casually looking at the post when, Whoa...DetlefMichel you've got Dan's 1619 Rebuild? How cool is that?
