For quite a while I've been intrigued by the Linhofs but being as aussie the chance of trying one in the near future is looking pretty unlikely. It would appear on the surface they'd be pretty well suited to what I play an Alt-country/Americana-ish blend. I love the reversed treble pickup it makes sense to me in a lot of ways. Anyway, the thing I've noticed though that a lot of folks seem to have bought and then sold their Linhofs. I was curious as to why.
