      Excellent podcast as always.  I liked where Richard noted that he likes smaller guitars – it absolutely shows up in the wonderful tone and feel of the smaller instruments!

      Would you believe we ran out of tape? Got to the end of the cylinder?

      We did get back to Richard and got a second part in the can, but it’ll be a while before it gets all edited (lots more ums, ahhs, and coughs in this one)

      It is really wonderful to get Richard talking about something he loves and is so incredibly knowledgable about – trying to make it sound like I can come up with an intelligent intro for him to start from, well . . .  But the idea of scientific knowledge combined with a huge amount of hands on experience, thats a conversation I’m excited to be part of. I think we’ll have more on materials –

      Lots o’ SCGC guitars! But never ask which is my fav

      Amazing, great stuff. Thank you so much for putting this all together. I’m hoping that Pt. 2 will provide a little more info in Redwood. Specifically, are Redwood and Sinker Redwood much different sonically? As a native Northern Californian I’ve always been a sucker for Redwood.
