Very nice! Love the FB markers. How does it feel size wise? My X-20 feels like a much better fit than other OMs I've played.

She's very loud and very...dark...maybe not dark but, the bass is huge compared to my Seagull S6, which I thought was pretty dark.

Lots of variation playing this guitar near the neck vs near the bridge.

There's something about the neck profile that is mucking with my accuracy.

I'll play with her for a while in standard and then go to DADGAD which every X30 owner tells me is their personal space.
Shes a beauty, congrats. Its interesting how preferences varied amongst standard and vibrant weave choices. Next, you should have fun trying out different strings.

I have already had two sets on.

Biggest 'improvement' for me so far was dropping the action to match my other acoustics.

The neck profile has me off a bit. It's a wider U than my Seagulls.
