Kind of surprised - just listened to the recordings on the site on a great pair of headphones. It doesn't sound anything like I expected it to!

I went back and listened to the videos and I LOVE the sound of it! It’s not as chimey as I figured it would be. I’d sure take it if someone on here wanted to buy it for me.

You just sit tight, Tnfiddler: I'm sure that any moment now some eccentric, good-hearted millionaire will happen along, hear your plaintive plea, and will buy you that guitar!

What you need to do now is practice looking plaintive - use a mirror to help perfect this irresistible facial expression:



Tnfiddler Just PINING For That Guitar...

Hope this strategy works for you!

Thank you so much for helping me out! I’m sure I’ll be totally fine playing my current Bourgeois that I just put down a few minutes ago. After owning it for nearly a year now, I’m still just amazed by the super clean tone that this guitar has.

A bit fancy for my tastes, but it sure sounds purty!

An OM-42 style guitar in koa would be right up my alley - if I were ever to buy another wood guitar, that is. Love me some koa..... but I have two already. And I've really become fond of arm bevels lately, something more easily done in carbon fiber.
