I was told it would be around 4 months before my lefty D-35 arrived...

...ordered May 11th, arrived May 27th ... 16 DAYS!!!

We figure either someone else cancelled an order, or they just happened to be making some lefties (since this is the 50th Anniv. of the D-35).

Anyway, the guitar is gorgeous, very nice silking in the spruce top, no really odd grain, no bearclaw (which I didn't want). The 3-piece back has just the right amount of contrast between the side and center pieces.

It sounds pretty good already, am looking forward to putting a set of John Pearse strings on it.

The set-up needs some minor tweaking - lower nut slots a little, and maybe the saddle a little, but that's it - otherwise set up very well.
