The fit and finish on this one are what I would expect from a top caliber CF guitar. Yes, some the underlying weave is visible under some light angles, but even then it is uniform and much more than acceptable, and the seams around the outside and the sound hole are smooth and pretty much invisible.

All's well. My thanks to my fellow AGFers who supported me and offered encouragement through this.

NGD to come after I get some Retro Monels on it and have a chance to play it a while.
Glad to hear this all had a good outcome!

Thumbs up

Excellent in both your ultimate result and on a fine instrument! You have the right idea for strings too.

Glad it worked out for you.

+1 on the Monels.

It's interesting (to me) that on my mahogany guitar, the Monels sounded great right from the get go. I did not need a 'break in' period to enjoy them. However, on my CF they needed about a week. I'm glad I waited them out because they sound fantastic on my H-OM.

Thanks. Like you, the Retros sound great on my Eastman E6OM (mahogany). I was just about to put them on the Rainsong when I read your post. I guess I'll wait until after the open mic tonight.
