    Wow that does look nice. Pricey to be sure, but not outrageously so. And it's just nice to see something top notch from time to time. I don't happen to like the look of the red wood strip, but I'm...

    Well.....I would say, except that I'm pretty sure it will reflect poorly on the state of my mental health. Really cool piece of wood though.

    Well yes.....but if his arthritis is like mine it hurts just as much to hold a pick. The next step would be a thumb pick so you don't have to grip it. Haven't tried that yet, but I have one on hand...

    It doesn't get in the way, but it (like your skin) does come in contact with the neck or top/strings. I've been using a right hand one when strumming, and I've covered the hard plastic parts with...

    Are we talking about thumb base arthritis? I'm "lucky" to have this in both hands, though it is much worse in my right (which is odd considering that I am left handed). Anyway, I have found thumb...

    Not sure why Richlite gets such a bad rap from many folks. Gibson even uses it on $4000 guitars. I have it on several instruments, and it is an ideal fretboard material, impervious to nails, dirt,...

    Another vote for keeping THIS forum going. I've been to the Discord site, but frankly can't quite figure it out, and certainly don't see any advantage to having a "chat" room over a more traditional...

    That's certainly interesting about the more balanced tone. As much as I like my "original" Klos, the tone does suffer when compared to my Farallon. Can't wait to run a comparison with the new Klos.

    We may give Webex a try. So far we've tried Zoom and Discord, and I think Discord was a bit easier to use. But neither allows sound from more than one player at a time.

    Hard to tell from the small photo, but while the shape is similar, it's probably closer to the Enya Nova. The frets look to be plastic, while the Lava has metal frets, right? And of course you have...
