I had no idea a 00 could have tone so deep! I looked away as you were playing and would have sworn it was a much larger guitar!

It's a wonderful work of art!

Best,
PJ

My thanks, PJ, and I know what you mean. My first experience with a 12-fret 00 was Bob Tucker's old Martin 00-21. I've been hooked since. The 00 is a captivating instrument, with a sound all out of proportion to its smaller size.

Smile Finally reached it's home

Well, this beauty has finally reached it's new home this past Friday. This is the first guitar that I have watched being built virtually, and on AGF. While the pictures have been great, seeing this beauty in real time has no equal. This is also the first guitar that I have really had a hand in all the design components (with Steve and Ryan guiding me of course), and you never know what to expect until you see it in person....and, I must say, it's really a beauty.

The sound is waking up, and the sustain is growing by the day. It's interesting hearing the tonal changes as the wood slowly adapts and comes alive to it's new shape. I really like the 00 size, and it plays like butter.

Hopefully, I can post some sound clips when it's a bit more settled in.
What an amazing experience, and collaboration with some top notch people and accomplished luthiers...now, the journey begins with a new instrument!

Impressive to say the least! And, as someone who owns several 00s (vintage and new), I'm not the least bit surprised at the big, balanced sound they .. and this one .. can produce. Well done!

We've been out of town (B. Tucker's memorial service) and almost missed these kind comments. Thank you, Chris! I'm pleased you stopped by.

And you, too, maurerfan...thank you. Believe it or not, when we are working with one of these old designs, I wonder how it will received by you . We have some similar tastes, and I find your thoughts most interesting. So again, thank you!

Steve
