Default A new Journey in Life, a new guitar, a new Kostal! Brazilian/German ???

I know a lot of people like the 00 in a 12 fret. I also am a 14 fret person so that was something that could sway my decisions quite a bit.

I think that's the only thing that has me somewhat curious about the 00. Jason's guitars have a very beautiful design. It would be fun to see how he'd filter his aesthetic through a 00 sized guitar...

Get a 12 fret 00! My Bashkin 00 12 fret 25.4 scale is brilliant. I am a total convert for 12 frets now.

If he had to send your guitar in two boxes, you had better send them back. He's still got some assembly to do.

I am in possession of a Kostal 00 12th fret!

As you can see there is a pretty big size difference between the 00 and the MD. More pictures to come and I'm going to try to record both and comment on the differences between Jason's MD and his 00.

Wait, I'm confused. You already have a Kostal Mod D, and I see the 00, but there were two shipping boxes. Is there a third guitar?

Juston, my guitar traveled to woodstock for Jason to show. He wanted a mod-D at woodstock so I offered to send mine. In return, he sent me the 00 for me to compare! So now I have to decide between the 00 and an OM!

Grateful to see this thread. Your recording and pics will help me a lot. I am thinking of commissioning another Kostal while waiting on my MD. Surely I want to go for The tree mahogany/German sp but not sure about body type between OM and 12fret OO.

Eric, very cool. What a terrible decision you have to make!

I do not envy you in these trying times.

As they say in French, never two without three.

Get both the 00 and the OM. Throw in a cutaway on the latter to better convince yourself that you actually "need" both.
