Finally... X30 baritone! I had my mind set on this option for quite some time.

Unfortunately this video did not make me pull that trigger (yet). It seems like the demo players are holding back on the baritone for some reason. And it does not help either that one of them is out of tune. Even the X30 nylon comes across more powerful here.

Not that this June series has my interest anyway since I dislike woodies. Yes, I know... blasphemy. I also prefer the neck and body joint at the 12th fret (or higher). This 11th fret joint would be a major confusion when I reach for open string harmonics.

That's a gaggle of D35 killers!

I love this format with demo players.

The Fan Fret X30 will probably haunt your dreams. Mine is unlike anything else I've ever played. It doesn't just sound great, it gives you a face full of luscious warmth.

If I play my Fan Fret X30 a long time, I wear sunglasses to prevent my eyes from drying out from all the air movement.

And sometimes eye drops may be in order

X30 sales have surpassed the X20's? Before too long the X30 will be the standard by which all other guitars are compared.

With my limited amount of hair I wouldn’t want that- gotta keep my sexy looks.

Makes me want to go pick up my X30 for a test drive. I have not tried it since being released to play again by the shoulder surgeon. The X20 was fine on Sunday for a long jam session, but today I'll give X30 a turn.

A buddy of mine has an Amicus and now an X30, both woodies. Speaking as a long time D28 and D18 guy, he just loves the X30.

I have thought about putting heavy strings on my X30 and tuning it down like a baritone, so having a factory made one shows that it is feasible. Getting a good recording with three different players is challenging. So don't judge too harshly between fingerpickers and a strummer. I like the quick comparison format. It's easier to digest than full pieces.

My Lucky 13 has 13 frets to the body. I find it easier to adapt to than I expected. Maybe 11 frets would not be so bad. It still has side markers and plenty of access to the higher frets.
