That, I can vouch for. If I’d run into a Sable before I bought my X20, I might well have voted differently.

Happy New Year, Tony!

I purchased an OF660 last fall and have been very pleased with how it sounds, independent of its travel-friendly features. It has a nice balance between upper and lower registers, great sustain, and the 24.5Ē scale helps me manage some challenging stretches.

Happy New Year David!

I can safely say, after playing your X20, that I could easily be happy with either guitar.

My dream CF guitar would be an exact copy of my Huss & Dalton 00, with its short 24.9" scale, 1 7/8" nut and 2 5/16" saddle string spacing - in carbon fiber.

If one sets up an AGF poll, which can't be modified once set up, it shall follow as night follows day that the OP will be reminded of which choices he or she overlooked. That was the purpose of including an OTHER category. Mea culpa....

I have a Blackbird lucky 13, just about the only CF without a cutaway. Probably he only 13 fretter too.

Did you notice the figures add up to considerably more than 100%?

Yes, that's exactly true. Anyway, I started my post by noting that I wasn't surprised it wasn't on there, and have always known the meaning of other when given as a poll choice. Which is why I used that button.

Many of us have more than one brand, in my case Blackbird and McPherson, that is probably it. My Lucky is still a great little guitar, and looks good too. Enjoy.

Yep, multiple choices allowed and surprisingly enough, many have more than one.
