very nice. I had a chance to play one of drew's pieces not long ago. darn nice builder. other than one piece I have on an order cue, no further acquisitions after this year for me. I took receipt of 3 acoustics this year that still smells like the woodshop so I gotta go gig and break them in.

Wow 3 for this year ?! Farseer slowed down this year too.. he got a kevin ryan ata.

I really like olson.. siguro down the line if ever i will go braz b/s..

Olsons tone is consistent. The fact the he doesnt "voiced" his instruments and have that consistent sound is a proof that guitar building isnt rocket science. Sabi nga nya its just woodworking. If you build it right, something good will come out of it.

Kaya i am intrigued by drew..  he does top voicing and the hybrid om is he's thing.

Have you tried his hybrid?

I have not tried the hybrid. I tried the SJ. I am an SJ kinda guy, maybe a concert depending on what I need the guitar for. Unless I am recording the thing up close or have an onboard mic, I usually go with a dread or jumbo shape because its pretty versatile for cutting through when you are in a trio or duo setting. I slowed down a ton because I've got some stuff on order and I realistically can't gig and break all the the guitars in at the same time even if I consistently do sessions or gigs. I got in on the Olson cue a while back since there is quite the backlog on his builds. A Braz Olson would be something! I basically am opting for my own version of a James Taylor Olson but with less bling and as minimalist in visual appeal as I can get.

You getting a Ryan too?

I forgot. Its not 3 -its actually 4. I forgot about the Adi topped HD-28 Martin I got over the Spring. I've never owned a Martin dread so this was a first for me.

He did not but that kind of stuff has been buzzing around for a while even when I visited the Healdsburg years ago. When I was in the shop, it looked like stuff was still getting set up for building so I imagine he is going to keep at it for a number of years, still. For builders getting up there in age like Olson and Somogyi, folks worry about that. Kind of part of the reason why I got two Beneteaus. The wait was still almost 1.5 years from deposit to delivery. Shorter for Greenfield and prolly the same for Olson but was quoted 9-12 mos give or take a few. I haven't played many Ryans but I was sold on the Olson the first time I strummed one. The clarity was nuts and it reminded me of the same oomph and contemporary sound as this G1 Greenfield I played. Your SJ looks amazing
