    Actually its a Gator Jouneyman burlap case. A little Similar to the old Cowboy cases but a lot cheaper.

    Personally, I'm still waiting for the "Islay" finish.

    If I didn't already own a 2nd Gen (Super HiLoTron version) in Black, THIS would be the finish I'd go for. When they released these a while back, it was far and away my favorite of the new round of finishes.

    She's a beauty. Something about that woodgrain that just draws you in...but then I'm a hobby woodworker. Congrats.

    I didn't like that color in other pictures I've seen but after seeing yours, that's the color I'd go with!
