I think it will give the guitar a cool asymmetrical look. Much more adventurous than I [:Y:]

Very very nice [clap] The sound is a little jangly for my taste in the slower parts, although that's to be expected on a new guitar with new strings. But when you really get whaling on it (see what I did there?), it's magic. You can hear an almost vocal "ooh" tone in the mid range... those sort of things are what I love about acoustic instruments. The music is more than the sum of individual notes like you get in digital production.

What song is it you're strumming there? Sounds sort of Coldplay-ish, but I don't think I recognize it.

Thanks for posting the video too. Yeah, it has less then a couple hours of playing time too. I need to set it up again too. But I'm happy with it. It's only my second guitar.

Well, this is certainly going to be a tough competition. Really nice sounding and looking guitar. Great work.
