I though the tune was so tastefully done. Just a perfect pairing with that guitar. Seriously great playing. Are you in the Bay Area? I ask because Alan is in West SF. If so, we should get together post-Covid.

I've got the equivalent Maurer (a 451, the same as Stahl 6, and no, I've no idea why the crazy difference in number designation.
I always assumed the different designations were mainly due to the resellers using their own systems.

That is beautiful and makes me want to add it to my list of someday guitars to own.

I enjoyed your sample. If you want better recording quality without much investment, check out the Zoom iQ6. Itís quite an impressive sound for $100. With your playing and that beautiful guitar, itís a worthy investment.

Until recently I was living in the East Bay (Berkeley), which is how I discovered Alan's guitars. I recently moved to Maryland, but I'd love to get together at some point when I'm visiting the Bay Area again.

Thanks for the tip! Since getting this guitar, I've been thinking about getting some recording equipment. I'll look into the Zoom iQ6.

Alan is the best at repair in SF. When I picked up my Merrill OM 28 which needed a top seam repair and new bridge slot he opened up a case and handed me Bob Weir's 1930 OM 45.

He repaired a friend's Somogyi Modified D for $350 after Ervin quoted $1,000.

I found out about Alan's work after visiting Stevie Coyle's guitar shop. In a shop full of amazing guitars the one that really stood out to me was one of Alan's Stahl replicas. I'd highly recommend Stevie's shop (Mighty Fine Guitars) in Lafayette, CA for anyone who hasn't been there.

Big fan of Stevie's. His fingerstyle course on Peghead Nation is wonderful. I took the course just to learn his original arrangement 622, which he demo's with the Stahl video online.

About a year later, I bought my 00-21. The neck set had previously been performed by Alan. Of course now having been familiar with Stevie and his Stahl, I knew Alans' reputation, which sealed the deal on the 00-21 for me.

Finally, just before COVID hit last year, I found myself in SF for a business trip, so I took an extra day to explore the surroundings, including MFG. Stevie was so warm and gracious. I played at least a dozen of the guitars there. The standouts to me were a braz Maingard and this (which truly had a huge tone):
