Re: Alpine spruce tops from the origin - a review (reply)
Thanks to this thread I purchased 4 tops from Josef a couple of years ago and it's about as perfect as it gets. He also included a number of quartered sections for braces and instead of bubble wrap he used spruce shavings for protection....

Re: Mahogany question (reply)
The mahogany is stained, so the darkness of the wood is not an issue. If you look inside, you will see that natural mahogany is lighter in color than Martin's 18's. In other words, if GE's are lighter in color than Authentics, it is...

Mahogany question (topic)
I had a D-8 GE and now have a D-18 Authentic. I noticed that the GE back and sides were very light brighter red while the authentic was very dark. I've seen a couple other GE's that were lighter than the couple of authentics I've...

Re: Cambodian rosewood?? (reply)
I had Kathy Wingert make me one of her Model F guitars with Vietnamese Rosewood (and an Italian spruce top) several years ago, and its back/side wood appears to be the same as what others have identified as Dalbergia Cochinchinensis. I...

Hey you'all .. thanks for the comments about the property, both unexpected and appreciated.  Lot's of stone walls round here .. as in much of new england.  In this case, the colonial gentry cleared the land for potato fields ... they...

Re: Cambodian rosewood?? (reply)
I use Elixir Nanoweb light 12-53 phosphor bronze. I like the soft feel and they last for months. I've never put my guitar on a scale but I think it might weigh a tiny bit more than a Indian rosewood 12 fret built to the same...

Re: Cambodian rosewood?? (reply)
Just curious....what gauge strings to use on your 00-42?...............also they seem to have a bit more weight to them then their East Indian cousins? The guitar I am looking at is an OM with the same woods as yours......

Cambodian rosewood (reply)
 I have a 2013 Martin custom shop Cambodian / Adi  00-42 12 fret hyde glue build. I agree with Bruce Sexauer thoughts. This combo is fantastic! Mine has a reverb rumble with a full bass and dry clear trebles with no harshness at all. It...

Re: Cambodian rosewood?? (reply)
I made a Mini-D (owned by Tadol) using Cambodian (more than one wood under this moniker) and Adi. I love the guitar and think of it as the single driest/vintage sounding guitar I've ever made. Sample of one doesn't really tell much.Looks...
