I was lucky enough to get to play this guitar about a month ago. It has the best hogtop tone I have heard. Through repaired rather than original, it is in beautiful condition. To my taste, it's a real looker. Usefulmtree has been over with instruments on numerous occasions and one would be hard pressed to find instruments in better condition.

Thanks, Jeff!

Soundcloud clip also updated. Still iphone-mic fidelity and what's in the fridge today improv, but cleaner, chordier, and a bit more driven.

Nice. Your guitar sounds really beautiful. Thanks for sharing the sound clip. I never thought I'd want another O-size guitar until now, ha ha.

I owned a '34 0-17 for quite a while, and it was a magical little box. I miss it.

And to crank up the wonky quotient re recordings w/ the kit - (blame the indian not the arrow, as we very quaintly used to say), since Reverb only lets you direct link to one -

https://soundcloud.com/usefultree/lorem-ipsum-connors

It's very capable of unlocking even the most marginal perimeter of expression.
