Default Rainsong Vintage deep-dive video

There was a clip on the Rainsong Facebook page a couple weeks ago, but today they posted a long-form version with a pretty extensive look. I know some of you are already keyed in, but for those who haven't seen it: Best of Carbon Fiber and Spruce - Extended Demo

EDIT: YouTube link for those not on Zuckerville: Best of Carbon Fiber and Spruce - YouTube Version

He's certainly a good player. I really appreciate how he uses several different styles (including a deep de-tune) to really show the versatility of the instrument. My Nashville is a different body style, but I agree that it's got both power and detail available, hard strumming to soft fingerpicking. Definitely worth a watch.

Anyone know the string spacing from E string to e string at the saddle/bridge on the Vintage D ?

2-1/8", 2-3/16", or 2-1/4" ?

I have found a lot of the other dimensions and measurements, but not that one.

Thanks.

MiG;

Thank you for the reference for those who don't live in Zuckerville. Pretty sweet sound and play. I am surprised at how fast the guitar plays--almost seems electric.
