After what felt like forever my new Byrl guitar arrived yesterday. It sounds incredible (I’ll get videos soon) and looks even better. The top is quilted maple and the back and sides are spalted hackberry. The top looks black but it’s not- it’s stained ebony and then sanded so the wood grain shows through and it’s gorgeous. Here's  what it looks like (next to my Beard Josh Swift Signature I've been playing for the last couple years, and also really love...)

That's a nice looking guitar! If it's anything like the ones Rob Ickes is playing, you should have a real cannon.

I ordered it before Rob Ickes got his so I was a little nervous about how it would compare to his, but it’s a monster. I told Byrl I wanted something a little mellower and smoother sounding than the Beard for different playing styles and he delivered. I expected it to sacrifice some volume but I was wrong. It’s loud and a blast to play.

That's a beautiful instrument and I can almost hear it by looking at it! LOL

I bet you can. You have the closest one to it even though it's still quite different smiley
