But how does she play? Is she gentle on the fingers? Does she put a grin on yo're face?
Does she "jangle" in all the right places? Have you stuck yo're nose in the soundhole and smelled the essence of a great new guitar? Admit it - it's something we all do.
Gentle on finger tips, but not on finger muscles.
She puts a grin on my face.
She jangles a lot. I've learned that she jangles a lot more with a soft pick and a lot less with a stiff pick. That's useful information to have.
I have not stuck my nose in the soundhole. The back and sides are a resin based material like carbon fiber or fiberglass, except that the fiber content is wood fiber. If I took a big ol' whiff of that, it might take me a while to find my feet again.
Thanks for all the well wishes folks. I've been wanting a Martin for some while. I really like the way they sound. Though this isn't a traditional Martin with the high tech materials, it surely sounds like one. I'm going to work on lowering the action a little. Shave down the bridge a little, and take some relief out of the neck ought to do it. My fingers are getting stronger, that's for sure. And I'm having to be a lot more precise about where I place them to get both strings. I have a feeling this guitar will force me to become a better player.
Now it's time to start working on an arrangement of Sundown...
