Got the fever too, huh? :-) I am awaiting a custom Barbara Allen cherry and walnut from Ron Gibson -- should arrive late next week. Although not the Kentucky model I will let you know what I think of the overall quality and sound etc. of theBarbara Allenand will post pics. I ordered mine completely through emails after checking out the sound files and pictures on his website, and I found him to be very good with communicating and answering questions. I gave him a "laundry list" of things I wanted and he gladly accomodated all my requests.He just emailed to update me on the status of my order one week earlier than I expected.Can't wait to see how it turned out!
