Swapped in a set of soprano Worth Browns, which sound great, and fit better in the nut. They are still settling down, but a sweet tone. Tuners were pretty bad, so new Pings went on there. This one has been in the closet for 2 years, so it will be fun getting reacquainted.

One of these days I have to get my hands on a Favilla. I hear lots of good things about them.
