17 minutes and 40 seconds of awfully pretty stuff (o.k., they're classical guitars). Things to think about when choosing your next:

Got late night access to a nearby church?

A facinating broadcast Dirk. Thanks for posting that. I listen to NPR pretty often but missed this. I have heard of dual top instruments which is what I think they were talking about but have never seen one. I'm sure American Luthiere has had something on them in the past.

The difference in sound was quite evident but like a couple of good wines, determining which one is "best" is near impossible.

No no OG! Determining the best wine is easy.... It's the one I am drinking at the moment.... Whenever that is :)
