I'm blowing the dust off this thread rather than begin another one.
After a two year wait (part financial budgeting on my part, part CITES Rosewood regulations and part quaint Spanish-Australian Customs process, I finally have my first luthier built guitar! It Is simply magnificent and I am confident that it is the best guitar ever to be made in the whole world!
It is responsive to any touch and has forced me to lift my game, technique-wise. I found that I was slightly brushing adjacent strings with my finger tips and I never noticed that on my old guitar. And every note on every string at every fret simply rings so CLEAR! Wow!
I've only had the guitar a month and we are still getting to know each other. My only negative opinion is it is rather "bright" sounding. I attribute that to the strings the luthier used (Knobloch C.X. carbons). I chose a cedar top because I believed the mythology of cedar producing "dark,warm tone"
