Had a chance to get this beauty in front of a mic today. Iím beyond thrilled with how it performed. I could feel it opening up the longer I played it.
Off to a good start!

Fabulous, Matt. Sounds absolutely great, especially in your skilled hands!

I'm curious, did you consider a 12-fret join at all or do you prefer 14-fret joins?

I must throw in a +1 here. I was hoping for something after the arrival of the bearded hog.

The guitar sounds phenomenal for being fresh off the bench but your playing wins here, Matt. Beautiful sounds. Thank you.

Gorgeous, so sweet and balanced in tone. Loved the harmonics you were pulling out of her.

I recorded some stuff at the park yesterday. This is my first time trying this and I wasnít sure how the audio would turn out.. but it could be worse.

You have done well with this one...

I have played the FS models with Cedar tops and passed due to a lack of bell-like harmonics and not enough projection and clarity coming out of the box. I have to dig a bit too much to get the tone I want.

Your harmonics just RING beautifully, even at the 5th fret which can be less pronounced than at the 7th fret and higher up the neck.

The notes sing out readily. Lots of sustain and clarity. The Bass is organized and not muddy. Very balanced across the three registers too.

Your premium spruce top gets the job done for my ear and playing style.

I am happy for you.
