    Well – we can fit something like that in, but it’s really 2 things –

    There’s the aging and “curing” of the wood, which is less of a thing because Richard prefers to use well aged woods to begin with, and then there’s the “breaking in” of the assembly, which is kinda like the natural tensions created in the building adjusting to the natural tensions created by stringing it up and tightening up those strings.

    But we’ll try to get Richard weigh in on all that with his expertise when we talk!

    I haven’t tried the XS on a 12 string, but I have tried a set on a Sexauer guitar I have – and they aren’t bad at all. I can’t speak to their longevity, since I know that my SCGC strings give me great service life, but the have good tone so far. The set I got at a local shop cost me near as much as a set of SCGC, so unless they come down in price, I’m not inclined to pursue them further – but until the SCGC 12 string set comes along, the XS or maybe the Nanowebs might be good options –

    I have a 12 string XS set I ordered but haven’t installed yet – maybe this weekend I’ll take the time to do that –

    Whats that top one? I’ve not seen anything like that – the bottom one looks kinda Shubb hybrid.

    I haven’t heard anything, but it’ll definitely be one of the things we’re gonna ask about when we get to talk to Richard & Carolyn –

    Our very good moderator has managed to line up some outstanding people to talk to – another coming up soon, and hopefully another chance to talk to the maestro to see what good things are happening at the shop –

    Remember that one reason we’re doing these is to help draw more people to our forum here – help spread the word!

    You know, when I was talking with James Patterson some years ago, he told me that he built most of his guitars out of east indian rw because it was something like $12/set cheaper than brazilian –

    In my 1980 price list, the upcharge from SCGC for brazilian was $125 – koa was standard –

    Just sayin’ –

    Well I was kinda intrigued by oo-7771 –  OM 190 – After reading that I pulled it out, and yup – thats my koa OM, built 12/91 – it is a really sweet guitar!

    Good to hear! Sounds like a very pleasant way to spend a birthday (although I’d be very happy just to spend one in France!)
