Haha, I don't know him personally but one of my old teachers—Mike Lorimer—studied with Segovia! I bought an '65 Ramirez from Lorimer that he played in several Segovia masterclasses. And Mike claims Segovia played a few notes on the Ramirez and said "it's a good one." So there must be a wee bit of Segovia mojo in my music (albeit I don't think he'd approve of my pickup and cutaway instruments).
I play a Tiny Tenor 6 so I look taller on stage!
