Naw - ol' Dake can take care of himself! :lol:

I'm expecting the instrument to arrive in the Spring -- I've gotta call Mr. Reynoso this week and nail down the finer points - and finish paying it off! Needless to say, I'm pretty durn excited!

So the new Fink did not do it for you eh. It just shows that GAS will afflict us all. I sincerely doubt that this would be the last guitar that you order :)

I just looked at his website. Seems like a good excuse for you to take a trip to Santa Barbara next spring!

D'Addario Pro Arte EJ46 nylon 1st and 2nd with a Savarez Alliance 543J carbon 3rd. This combination is warm and sweet but still offers sustain and clarity on my guitars.

Congrats on the new guitar! I really like the simple yet elegant aesthetics of Reynoso guitars, especially the headstock with the relief carved keystone and crown designs. I also like the darker colors he typically uses for the rosettes and the smaller proportions of the body. Kind of reminds me of the original Clarita... it may just become that long sought 'Cedarita' after all!

The Finck has a nice 3 inch crack in the soundboard - it still plays and has a lovely tone. My wife actually pulled the Reynoso off as a surprise - needless to say, it worked!

I'd like to head down to Georgia (please, no Charlie Daniels jokes here) for the GFA next year, but I'm pretty disappointed with the folks who're going to be there, so I dunno. I might drop in on the Cincinnati week next summer.

you said you were probably not going to the GFA this year? just mentioned a few fav players to entice you. i can then see your new guitar.

Sorry - I couldn't figure that out! Can you tell I'm getting old?!?

No flies on David Russell, although he isn't my favorite player. Mr. Reynoso is, I believe, going to attend the GFA convention in Georgia. Shoot, it might be worth going just to meet remmus/summer!

I just purchased at set of the Wyres Silvered/Nylons. Seems to be pure silver on top of a nylon ?
Very, rich warm sound with 50% more sustain. they work well on my Ignacio Roza Cedar toped concert
