Tim,

With a sample size of one, I'm hesitant to read too much into the results, but for my tonal target, I'm very happy. I thinned the top about .005 under my norm and thinned the x slightly also. It's super responsive and responds equally well to finger style or pick, though I'm generally playing it with a pick. I am going to put a set of nickel bronze strings on it and see how it sounds. I have a set on my Greven and really like them.

There are a lot of tonal influences on this guitar ... Bar frets, Ebony neck reinforcement, Spanish Cedar neck to name a few, but as we all know the majic is in the top and I'm very encouraged by what I hear with this material. Hopefully others will agree.

I very interested to hear your comments.
