Congratulations on this beautiful build to both Tyler and the lucky new owner.
Please let us know your impressions of the sound after you've had time to play it for a while and if you get tired of it please let me know!

This guitar is amazing! The note sustain really stands out to me. Chord comping or finger (nail) picking / plucking is very easy, giving a full sound. There is nothing that feels uncomfortable! The action is perfect!

The body style has worked out just how I hoped it would. (I love the bevels) This is Tylers first guitar of this size (R.2ca) I wanted a slightly smaller size acoustic. He made it happen. For me guitars have come and gone out of my life but this one will be with me to the end!

That is some of the finest cocobolo I've seen, and the rosette is spectacular. Congrats on the build!

That turned out really beautiful! Great work, Tyler. Did I miss it in this thread somewhere- was there a pickup added? What kind?

We did go with a pickup on this one. Randy did some research and decided on the Trance Audio Amulet Phantom.

http://www.tranceaudio.com/amuletmphantom.html

I only got to spend a little bit of time with that pickup but from what I heard, I really liked it. The pickup does not have a battery pack but the sensors that attach to the bridge plate have a bit of weight to them. Much more then a K&k. I got lucky, the weight of the pickup actually dropped the frequency of the top a decent amount, but it landed between scale tones. The difference may or may not be audible but had it landed too close to a scale tone, I could have ended up with a wolf tone which would have been unacceptable. If I work with this pickup again, I will install it prior to final voicing of the instrument so that nothing is left to chance.

Thanks for that info - I didnt realise the trace amulet is that much heavier than the k & k.how would the dazzo pickups compare in Weight with the k & k instead?
