The new Pimentel Guitar.

I received an E-mail from Rick Pimentel to let me know the new instrument would be completed by April, 4th. Here are a couple of the photographs he sent. It is exactly what I had asked for and can't wait to get my hands on it. Pimentel calls this the Jazz Fusion, but I will call it the Pimentel Coyote. It looks like I will be back in Salida this June. I'll confirm the dates soon, plus any others I book.
