Smile Off and running....

Here we go! FYI the Mitchell is John's largest size. At 16.75" across the Lower Bout it is almost as big as a Gibson Jumbo or say a Taylor Leo Kottke, which are 17".

Coincidentally, The Mitchell is quite close in size and shape to the new Taylor Grand Orchestra/X18 designed by Andy Powers to replace their Jumbos.

This has a nice curvy shape with a rounded Lower Bout. Since I play seated a lot, with the guitar propped between my legs up in kind of classical position I find this larger size with the longer body is actually MORE comfy for me. Especially with 12 frets clear, the Manzer Wedge and the big comfort bevels.

Are we still going with the Kiaat for the binding/bevels?

More soon...
