Fascinating...how I would love to sit and listen to a bunch of guitars being played. Years ago I did an audiophile shoot out of CD players on a high end stereo. Honestly I couldn't hear the difference between my big box store player and the 1000$ units.

How did the La Leona sound in terms of volume?

I trIed to pick favorites without including the ones I owned which were the Hauser III and the Gutmeier Cedar DT. both from a listening and playing standpoint. Amongst my three the Tacchi has that velvet sound like no other and the Elliott had everything anyone can ever ask for. Matt's favorite of mine was the Bottelli Hauser replica.

Just a totally fun time was so high could not sleep afterwards cause Charles and I talked to the wee hours of the morning. I did some vides and will try and have Charles include a few for me.

What a wonderful evening that must have been. I guess my invitation got lost in the mail also. I would have loved to have been there to hear one of my next guitar purchase (Tacchi, Bottelli, or Hauser III) ;)

There were lots of iPhones being pointed at Matt while he was sampling each one, I will have to poll some folks to see who has anything worth sharing.
I was left with a few of the guitars while the kind owner was off at an appointment so grabbed this minute of iPhone footage of the awesome Jeff Elliott:

First time playing an Elliott, no words to describe it.
Yes. I got to play an Elliott at a local CG gathering. BEST SOUNDING GUITAR I've ever played. I loved your playing by the way.
