Thank you!
Every steel string I have. I'll switch from one to another every month or so.

After having owned it 3 months, the honeymoon is over.

I have to say, without any doubt, it is my Huss and Dalton Custom 000 12 fret. I cannot help but pick it up every chance I get. Everything about it...the body size, neck profile, playability, and above all the tone. It calls me to pick it up. I will play my Taylor 322e 12 fret, which I love, but it gets put back in its case after about 15 minutes so I can spend time playing the H&D.

In only 3 months, the satin neck on the H&D is getting a nice semi gloss sheen from being played so much...not to mention my (very limited) skills are much improved. It is inspiring!

SORRY ABOUT THE SIDEWAYS PHOTOS...I CANNOT ROTATE THEM.

This one has been totally unexpected. I have not had great luck trying, buying and owning 00 models. I’ve had 8 or 9 amazingly good 00-style guitars that have come and gone, including: Martin, Collings, Waterloo, Bourgeois, H&D, SCGC H-13, and one private luthier. The first 00 that I’ve truly loved is my Froggy Bottom C, which does it all in spades, but still - it isn’t my “every day” guitar. However, I purchased a SCGC 1929/00 six weeks ago and I am smitten! This guitar has a personality, tone and play, that inspires me to pick it up every day. It plays and sounds like no other I’ve tried. I clearly understand how another player might not appreciate what it brings to the table, and that’s why we need to search for ourselves. But this one seems to have some magic for me. Let’s see what a few years brings.

Thanks Scott. If you ever have an opportunity to play a Huss and Dalton, do it.

The fine folks in Staunton sure do know how to make tremendous instruments. My H&D TD-R is, as I've said, my tonal favorite, and the one I'll break out if I need to impress someone (especially the ladies ).

They certainly do!
One day I hope to get a 00 SP to keep my 000 company.

My Collings 0003G IR (Olivia) strung with Newtone Heritage strings. She's an extremely nuanced guitar that chimes when you brush the strings with a pick yet has great balance the deeper I dig. Great finger style guitar too! Fits me perfectly.
