That's what I'm counting on!

Also, there will be a few cool new things that I have never seen in pictures of Ryans (Scott aka Bevelsnob be prepared! )

Haha Rick - you're always a good laugh

The Yamaha is my first guitar and will remain in the stable for sentimental purposes (it's also the posterchild for an "open" guitar)

Ok so I'm sitting on my couch in a playing my guitar and then I turn to the laptop and see this, first thought is wow that is beautiful. Next thought is I can see how comfortable that bevel could be, but do the fluted actually do anything I'm just thinking because it seems like my forearm would cover them for the most part, not to mention that you are removing beautiful wood... Sorry if this is a stoopid qestion,

It is absolutely NOT a stupid question and I asked the same thing when I was deciding on it for my first Nightingale.

I suppose it could vary by play depending on playing position, but in general, the "holes" or "flutes" are forward of where my arm rests so all the holes are unobstructed as they are pointing at my ears.

As for tonal difference, I definately notice a large difference in tone since it's basically a portal to the lower bout. The additional bass and mids I get out of it are tremendous and yet they are still balanced with the instrument...very cool. I have tried A/B with the flutes covered and uncovered and the sound difference is real. My Nightingale is definately a beast of a guitar and with those flutes, the wider soundhole, deeper box depth, EO bracing, etc. etc.......the beast is unleashed.

A number of other forum members also have these acoustic flutes so I'll let them offer their opinions as well.

Man I'm jealous. If you're ever in the mid-west make sure to bring that one. I would love just to see it much less play it. It's going to be a beautiful guitar. Congrats and fly my way.....

Nice set Commando ... I like straight grain.

So, another Nightingale. Well, I think that's one of my favorite body sizes ... though I really like the Cathedral as well ... and I think I'd like an Abbey someday ... and then there's the Mission ...

The bevel is a really nice and comfortable feature ... and the flutes are cool. I'm a fairly small person and I don't cover up them up (even though I have them on a Cathedral with the deeper box). I worried about that, but it's not a problem.
