Congrats on your purchase, hope you get lots of quality time!
I sometimes have mine 44 centimeters to my right... either way it is darn handy...I should have a cf by every chair ... but then I donít want to buy more chairs...so thatís what Iím up against these days.. chair/ guitar balance.... always something.

There's gotta be someone out there making carbon fiber chairs, right?

Chairs are over-rated. You might consider an arc of guitars around each chair... then, you wouldn't have to waste money or space on more chairs. You're welcome.

In that case I be thankin' ya Capt.

Don't know why I didn't think of it...oh wait now I remember why: was eating a PB&J thing with potato chips on it so as to be extra crunchy and was evidently thinking of other non chair related stuff.... figures.

That's why I go to a third party for DMV stuff...costs a little more and less scary.

Welcome to the wonderful world of CF!
Your statement is the same reason why I made the move to CF. A Rainsong JM1000 was my gateway drug.
It's great to be able to watch the seasons go by and only have to think about carving out playing time rather than maintenance time.

Well, I've had this guitar for a week and managed to play it every day, several times per day. Wouldn't have happened anywhere near as often if I had to drag the J45 out of "humid storage". Love the playability and tone. No regerts!

I've started training my wife to think that one of these is never enough. I'm thinking a WS of some sort, but I'm getting a bit ahead of myself. I'll try to make it a month before I embrace the GAS.

Ches;

You might consider getting a guitar for your wife. It's worked for others on this site. Christmas, anniversary, valentine's day, all offer possibilities. If you're really persuasive you could have a gaggle of guitars laying around the house.
