Can't get the sound clip, but I'd buy it on looks alone!

Curse you Charles! First you make me lust after a John Dick double top, then lose sleep over A Mueller guitars, and now you present another object of obsession. Have you no shame?
Congratulations on a beautiful looking and sounding instrument!

Enjoy it vicariously? I've been super lucky, all the guitars have been great and when I was ready to sell one, a happy buyer has been ready.
I can recommend all of them, but the Mueller is very hard to come by, he has a crazy waiting list (I heard 10 years). Both Glenn and John are in the one to two year range to wait, both highly recommended!

I think I remember fromJulian Bream's autobiography that he said when he toured he would only bring one with him, because otherwise he would get neurotic about which one to play at a concert. I can understand. but then having a backup isn't such a bad idea either. I dunno. But there are worse things to be worrying about for sure.

Charles, thank you for sharing the nice recording that you made of the Weiss Tombeau!

There is a simple way to relieve your stress and eliminate this quandary: send one of the guitars to me. I have not played a double top yet, and I have wanted to ever since hearing David Russell play his Damman. Any time you change your mind about which one you want, we can swap. If you eventually decide that you want just one, maybe you can sell me the other one. If you eventually decide to keep both then I will gladly return whichever one is currently in my possession.

Probably not close enough. But I would drive that far to borrow either one of Charles' guitars.......well I would drive that far if I could figure out how to get a couple days off or work. My wife, Rose, said she is ready to go. She is always ready to go on a trip. As long as I drive. LOL.

Having read Charles' guitar adventures over 10 years and 3 guitar forums, I trust his taste and judgement in guitars enough that I might just contact the builder and see about getting on his waiting list.

It would be cheaper and easier for me just to pay the shipping.

The whole post was was a mobius strip with "tongue in cheek / in jest" on one surface, and "dead serious" on the opposite side. And Charles' response was perfectly appropriate.

That was the Weiss Tombeau for Baron Hartig.
Thanks, Charles. Playing again . . . Rognvald

I have been playing background music for a few years and am beginning to Play in events where "all eyes " are on me. When I am the center of attention I will be playing my newly acquired Purnell #93 made by Jake Fuller. If amplification is needed I have a senheiser unidirectional Mic and a fender passport.

For background music I have a Cordoba c12 with a Kremona pickup if needed. The pickup sounds good whether I use the passport or if I use a Peavy electric guitar amp (which I have done in small spaces).

My rationale is that the PURNELL is simply beautiful in tone, color, and dynamic range. . . Things noticed by an attentive audience. While I love the C12 and the sound of the lattice braced cedar, it just seems to carry better in noise venues.
