Happy NGD Pete!

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Happy NGD!

Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.

Re: NGD, Jeff Tweedy 00-DB, Martin of course

Thanks guys. This could easily become my favorite guitar. It sounds wonderful for a smaller body. I have found that it seems a bit more difficult to play however. I don't know whether it I'd because the action is a little higher or because the neck is different than I am used to. I really have to concentrate on my chording to get my fingers placed just right. Sometimes I touch other strings and mute them out a bit. And I have to press down harder to get the clean chord sounds. I do notice though that the more I play it, the better I get with the chording.

Re: NGD, Jeff Tweedy 00-DB, Martin of course

Beautiful guitar, Pete! I was reading a description of your new guitar and noted that all the wood in your Martin is certified by the Forestry Stewardship Council, which I think is a great idea, given the fact that the forests which provide wood for high end guitars are threatened. I also note with approval that the fretboard on your Martin  made of Richlite rather than the more traditional ebony. If you're interested, here's an informative video with Bob Taylor explaining why ebony is an endangered wood, and what Taylor Guitar is doing to help preserve and protect ebony in Africa and elsewhere.
