Thanks again everyone for the kind words. And Briggsie, yes it is new. Shipped direct from Lyon & Healy. In fact when I first inquired they had several ebony ones on the floor. I took about two days to consider and when I called back to finalize the order they had all been sold so I had to wait another month for them to finish the next batch. So it’s so new it hasn’t even sat on the showroom floor.
