Thank you for the compliments re the sound of Dream presentation of my JB-15. They have become quite proficient at making recordings that show their guitars in the best light possible. As it happens, I believe this particular guitar does sound quite good, but what really makes this guitar (and most any other Iíve made) stand out is the responsive quality, it sort of gets out of the playerís way and makes the sound seem to spring from your own body. This is a quality often overlooked, and virtually always underrated.

Some guitars you have to force the sound out of, others you seem to restrain, releasing the beauty by forming it with your fingers on the instrument. You will know it when you experience it, if youíre looking for it.

All guitars are tools, but a well balance razor sharp tool in skilled hands is a wonderful thing.

Bruce I have to join the others in saying that is a phenomenally sounding guitar. I actually watch a lot of Paul's and Al's videos to get some sense of how guitars compare to one another. I can sort of tell when a guitar is more "responsive" just by the way Al plays the "Crossing" demo song. Sometimes he plays it at a slower tempo, other times he's more upbeat with more improvisation and other nuances; which I hear on this recording. I've only played one of your guitars in an intimate setting, it was a well-worn 000 that was in Paul's shop (I think it was Honduras rosewood) which I felt had the same "airy" sound and responsiveness that this one has in it's early life...

Louie: Once upon a time there was Online/Living-Room guitar business called "Fine Guitar Consultants". Its principle was Richard Glick, rip. Richard was a decent fingerstyle guitar player though I had to forgive him for using metal fingerpicks. Richard bought from me the tucurensis 000-45 that you played at Dream, and used it for his personal instrument for several years. I felt quite honored by that. It was no trailer queen despite the copious abalone.

One could definitely tell from the condition that it was well played. And for good reason - it sounded amazing! It's great to know he thought so much of the guitar that he played the thing! Great vibe to it as well, though well beyond my pay grade (which is how I got started on the road of building these things LOL...)

I vaguely remember the name, but remember seeing that business in my early days of researching individual-luthier-built guitars....
