    I am very happy with my Northwood Deep Body L-OO.

    Non Cutaway, it has a K&K and the 14 frets.

    I can deliver.

    The first SCGC guitar I saw was one f these around 1980. It was so gorgeous I gave up wanting a Somogyi.

    I played just one Sycamore Cruz. Top was Spruce of some kind. Right purty.

    My ex wife was not a fan of my guitar playing.

    One day I told her, “ I was playing before we got together. I will continue after you’re gone.”

    i don’t miss her at all.

    At Sylvan in January, I payed an F Cutaway EIR with Redwood top and Koa binding at Sylvan. Stunning volume and tone. When they get it right, it is the sonic equal of a Traugott.

    Ten years ago SCGC presented Scott Law and Bill Nershi at the Big Basin Winery. There were at least a dozen different guitars they played that night. It was magical in every possible musical way.

    the Winery currently evacuated.

    I hope it can survive,

    The challenge I had with mine was the small body and shorter scale. My right wrist angle was unforgiving. I tried many different ways of holding the guitar to fix my problem but never could. My reach from tip to fingertip is 72 inches.

    Otherwise, I loved the sound and set up of my FF.

    A good drummer helps, butI still get ahead and behind at times.

    Nate in Washington is the winner.

    we helped raise $30,000.

    my outlook is other people win and other people die in plane crashes. I’m happy to be a loser.

    I have a rhythm/tempo/speed that always runs a bit hot and fast. I have to concentrate to slow things down. I’ve listened to recordings where the end is much faster than the beginning.
