    You guys are amazing, I can't believe you got the pickup in and the guitar shipped so fast.  
    Thank you so much, my friends who I bug for guitars are going to be so relieved!

    I just received the VAD-1 and it is just EXQUISITE ! Almost can't believe my ears (and I won't again go through the list of the Dreadnoughts I already own ;-) !
    Martin dreads : D35 Johnny Cash, a HD28e, and DCPA4R.
    I also had a 2003 D18 which I sold because it wasn't so good.

    I just LOVE the VAD-1 as well ! It is wonderful to play and has a very specific bluesy tone with a zing on the higher mids and treble that is so singing.
    Congratulations to the whole team for putting up such a wonderful guitar and warm regards from Switzerland.
