A friend who plays multiple instruments had family over for the holidays. They came over to talk guitars and it turns out that 4 of them played, my friend and his girlfriend, his brother, and their dad. I passed around some guitars and it was a treat to sit with all of them facing me and listen to my instruments - quite different than playing them yourself.

I listend to these: 5 year old 12 fret mahogany and sitka 000 deep body, 2 year old oak and red spruce J-185, 4 year old osage orange and German spruce 3/4 size Gibson L body, and brand new all-Alaskan Cedar L- body Gibson.

They all sounded MUCH better then I recall them sounding last time each was played at me, and the mahogany 000 was the team favorite. I have a 1974 000-28, EIR and sitka, and the mahogany 000 is a dead ringer - sounds exactly the same.

What a treat and highly recommended

Yes, indeed. I'm fortunate to have a professional musician friend who is always willing to try out a new guitar. My guitars sound so good when he plays them! Of course, I suspect that he could make almost any guitar sound good, so I'm not sure how much significance i should assign to the sound he gets out of mine. It does demonstrate, I suppose, that it is possible.

I remember a standing in the livingroom of our friend's house a couple of years ago, when I heard some beautiful guitar music coming from the family room. I knew they'd been playing CD's, so I went into the room to learn the song and artist name, with the intention of downloading the music at home.

My mouth fell open when I saw my friend's father, with the guitar I call "Delilah", playing her. I'd forgotten that I brought her over and I had no idea he could play that well, or that Delilah sounded that good.
