Hi folks,

As some of you may know I do quite a lot of playing for The North American Guitar in London. They've recently uploaded me playing a full piece on my Tom Sands, and perhaps a perfect opportunity to hear and compare to others as they keep their recording setup and room consistent. Should you be interested in taking a look, you can by clicking this here link:

Thanks enormously =)

Will

P.S. First gig with it tonight - very excited!

...and the great playing helps!

Good luck with the gig. No dings please.

Cheers,

Will,

I've been watching your videos on repeat and just wanted to thank you for your performances. I just sent Tom my deposit for a summer 2021 build and I have a lot to consider.

This particular guitar and the recordings you have done with it are just phenomenal and has helped me contrast certain tonewoods and options I am looking for.

Cheers!

-Min

Nice, what do you have in mind? I have a cutaway model S on order for spring/summer 2021 inspired by the guitar in this thread (only mine will be of Spruce and Ceylon Satinwood)

I am starting at ground zero and the only inkling I have is that Tom's L model is quite pleasing. As far as tonewoods, options, and aesthetics... it's all chaos
