That's a great looking top you've got there kimono. I've had mine for a few years now and I still sometimes just stare at it. It is just a great aesthetic design from top to bottom, from the dots to the top to the placement of knobs and switches. And boy is it a great guitar to play. I understand that this was an anniversary guitar and MM wanted it to stand out, and this it does. But I think that if MM had offered the quilt or flame top, the reflex would have sold better. That said, enjoy! My guess is that you'll get that board nice and dirty again in no time.
