    Congrats. :metal:

    I love this body shape. :agreed:

    My friend has a Martin (EDIT: That should be TAYLOR :wallbash:), and it sounds very resonant.

    You must build one! :)

    I have built 8 in the past but i dont have the appropriate set up in order to build one at the moment, plus I got this one secondhand for only 400 euro!

    Excellent instruments. I'm quite partial to 12 string acoustics and Taylors are right up there.

    Nice man, not massively keen on Taylors but considering how absurdly overpriced that model is when new you got a good deal!

    I prefer the dreadnought models for the sound I'm looking for...

    But this was a crazy deal :agreed:

    are my eyes deceiving me or is it a 12 string, with only 6 tuning machines?

    It looks like Sapeli but not an incredible figured one....

    What I love is the open pores thype finish so that you can really feel the wood.... :agreed:

    I hate when they fill the wood pores so that it looks all shiny like plastic :noplease:

    I would say if you're interested in acoustic guitars with bolt-on necks, have you tried out a Klein guitar Klein Guitars ? I know, I know, they're a little more than outrageous in price... Want to say that Rainsong was doing something similiar, too (acoustic guitars with bolt-on necks).
