So this will not be a spectacular review because I actually like this ink so much I couldn't find enough snark in myself to make this an entertaining review.  (That and I'm tired.)  Still, thought it was worth giving a shout out to on the forums, because this truly is a lovely ink.  One major correction:  I forgot to do the matching colour bits until just before I scanned this in, and after comparing the inks I lined up on Leuchtturm instead of Tomoe River, they all don't look even remotely similar in my opinion.  Well, maybe Ancient Copper does, sorta, it's just 300% more saturated and redder.  Enjoy!

Excellent review!  Thank you for taking the time to do this!  I love the review, and am not enamored with the color.

What they said.  I'm not wild about the color, but thanks for the review.

I have gotten samples of some of the other Guitar Series inks (Pelham Blue, Tobacco Sunburst and Desert Sunburst), but haven't had a chance to try any of them yet.
