When my 1527M sold, I put a down payment on an Elysian Espada 6. I always thought the Espada shape was perfect, and Adams work on my 7621, and his past builds/modifications have all left me totally confident in Adams work, and he's cool to talk to about cars and moonshine so it's a win win.
I was going for understated, classy, function over form guitar, while still checking all of my boxes.

I'll be bumping the thread as progress occurs.
I've been thinking lately that I should do something similar... too bad I'll just end up flipping it.
