Some notes on my new FS: I have been playing the hell out of it for the past three weeks, and this morning I noticed it sounded like a seasoned guitar, like it had woken up, and what a sound it has, deep, rich, balanced, and full of color. I have some beautiful sounding guitars, notably the Olson and the Ryan, but they are Cedar tops and have a soft luxury to their sound. The FS is direct, sharp, and clear—a nice contrast to the other two. It is every bit as sweet to play as it is to listen to—quick, responsive, and easy to fret. I love the slightly wider neck down around the nut. It is a risk to buy a guitar on the internet. I relied on your expertise and advice, and the guitar has proven you entirely correct.
