Man, I can't say it enough - Brandon rocks.
I got in on a small order a few weeks ago for a custom pink blackbird that Brandon was making for a few folks. My wife really likes the blackbird model and I wanted to get something special for her for Christmas (she often gets my gear hand-me-downs and I wanted something just for her).
Brandon said he'd work to get it to me in time for Christmas, but wasn't sure. Understandable as he still had to order the fabric, make and ship it.
Well, just got the shipping notice! It'll be here in time for Christmas. Very cool. Pics to come after the wife opens it up.
