I would very much be interested in how the Sable holds up in a bluegrass jam. Maybe before you put it in its case and take the D-28A out on the road you could do the first road trip with the Sable.

Iím interested too. I did one set with the banjo player amplified and it obviously worked well. Even the rehearsal was fine. But most bluegrass I participate in is acoustic, or single mic. My assumption is that since the D-28s do so well with bluegrass, and the Sable sounds different than a D-28, that it may be missing something in the mids, bass, or overall volume. But, Iím always game.

Truthfully, bluegrass is a small part of my playing these days. For any trips, vacations, sit in sessions/bar gigs, open mics, benefit concerts, folk festivals, etc., I envision grabbing the Sable with the backpack gigbag. Itís too easy and worry free not to.
