    Lol. Thanks kerneltime. Ya know. I might not. But I just can't play 3 regularly and having exceptionally nice instruments going unplayed stresses me out. My Blackbird Clara purchase fell through...

    I've messed with this. Sounded pretty darn good as low as Bb. To my ear the body really didn't resonate well and things got kinda muddy with anything below Bb even with thicker strings with adequate...

    Agreed! I'm still totally smitten by mine. Much like Kiwaya's they play and sound an awful lot like the old Martin's, but Peter Hurney put's his own unique aesthetic on them.

    Jake's setups are amazing. EDW and I just happened to send ours to him at the same time. Mine was the 1918 one he posted about. It was great before, but now it plays like butter.
