Tasty. Good luck with the shipping!

What led you to the dark side?

That is pretty! I don't what that "darkside" David is talking about might be... you aren't switching to banjo, are ya??

Congrats!

It took awhile to get my baritone, so I am ready for the wait. I have not owned a nylon guitar for decades. I thought it would be fun to have a crossover.

Congrats. I like mine a lot. The two small things I wasn't happy with were the stock LR baggs element and the overall volume is a little low compared to wood classicals.

But with a tonedexter pedal and a swap to the Schatten hfn I have worked around those things.

One thing I have noticed is that it seems to be more sensitive to strings than most with a very wide variety in tone.

I have come back to the optima gold's as my favorite.

I would be interested to hear this guitar. Have been fascinated with carbon fiber guitars for awhile and am curious what a nylon string version sounds like.

Rapido;

I have owned 10 carbon fiber nylon strung instruments. I believe that CF holds its own when it comes to tonal qualities. I also believe that CF falters a bit when it comes to nylon string projection. I find that weakness to not be a major consideration given the ergonomic and custom features available with CF instruments. Also, the projection difference goes out the window with electronics. I've liked the K&K and the Barbera pickups for balance and enhanced projection.
