    Now we're talking!

    I didn't even know Artinger made solid body guitars, all the ones I see are otherwise.

    It's a first for me too. Looks like it's stylistically up your alley Jon. Has kind of an Alembic/Grateful Dead vibe. :)

    I used to own an Artinger semi hollow around serial #100. Its the only guitar that I've ever sold that I miss. I'd love to try a solid body from him.

    Matt can build any guitar with an incredibly thorough knowledge base. In my harem only one has left (I'd be happy to still own it) and a new one is not shown.

    KD does that acoustic with old Brazilian Rosewood sound relatively as good as an old Martin? I bet it does.

    I'm not the best judge of that, but here's how it sounds.

    For comparison's sake, here's the same tune played on my Ken Parker Archtop.

    KD, very cool I really like the next song Snow Day.

    As acoustic guitar goes I think the Artinger sounded considerably better. However, the recording process (mic placement?) seems to be different. Both have very even and superb dynamics.

    Here are some pics of my solid body, with a perfectly quartersawn East Indian Rosewood neck and a Spanish Cedar body. The body at a lot of depth to the tone and a later addition of a Schroeder bridge took it into the stratosphere. The body is reversed engineered to be chambered from the outside.
