Oh Dan...just stunning...the head stock repair is completely unnoticeable. The finish is superb. Can't wait to hear the sound bytes! Thanks for sharing and documenting your journey so immaculately! WOW!

Thanks, Ken. I'll be recording clips in a couple of days.

I was over at Dan's late this afternoon to pick up Patch's redwood parlor nylon string (mouthful) and brought along my 1117, on which he put an addy torrefied top (A braced), a year ago. With nickel strings on it, it's a canon. Dan pulled out this Balladeer and let me play it. Dan likes extra light strings (which give me a lot of room to tease him), but I suspect that with mediums on it, it would be a canon tone meister! I might have to talk him into letting me borrow it to try that out this summer for the canyon.

Somehow, the older I get, the less fancy guitars are catching my eye......

Any time you want to borrow the 1111, you're more than welcome to do so.

I'm an Xlight player, too, Dan. I think PM's mitts are bigger than ours.
Course, we know what that means...

I've heard that using heavier strings can also cause bulging between the lower bouts.
