Hi Glenn, and everyone else who responded.

Thanks for the kind thought and the comments about these guitars.

Yes they are a different "animal" to our beloved flat-tops but they have still earned their place in te history of the acoustic guitar, and yes, like flat tops they kept getting bigger and bigger ti follow the perceived need for ever more volume.

Apart from the wonderful L-3 that I had in the '70s which had to go to pay the mortgage paynent, (and I still miss) I think that the 1" bodies are the optimum size for the sound.

Anyway, if you have been, thanks for watching the video.
