Thanks Muris smile.gif

Yeah, it is an awesome guitar..

Oh, is the nylon version good as well?
I want to try that one as well, but I don't know where smile.gif

Hehe, you won't regret it if you buy one smile.gif

Thanks, Paal.

I like nylon a lot, even more than steel tho it's hard to compare it.
But Chet's model is really great so I'm sure this steel version
might fit my needs as nylon does. wink.gif

It is hard to compare, very different sounds..
Yeah it's awesome, I can only imagine what you could do with it blink.gif
Have you made any lessons with you Chet?

audiopaal
It sounds awesome, like a dream wub.gif
Bogdan Radovic
Thats one great instrument! wink.gif It looks and I'm sure sounds fabulous !
Dejan Farkas
What a great guitar biggrin.gif

I am sure it sounds awesome, it looks like the space between strings is like on classical guitars (wider) which is better for fingerpicking, is that right? smile.gif
Danilo Capezzuto
Beautiful guitar, compliments.

Thanks smile.gif

Yes it does, I like the sound very much..
The spacing between the strings is not like on on a classical guitar, but more in between a classical and an electric smile.gif
It's ok for fingerpicking, but not as much as a classical guitar. But the playability on this is truly awesome smile.gif

As for spacing,nylon version has the same spacing as on classical guitar,reasonable.
Once more,I'd really like to try your steel baby. biggrin.gif

Yeah, it would be strange if the nylon version didn't have the same spacing as a classical smile.gif

And I'd like to try yours, it sounded so great on your lesson smile.gif

We should do a Chet Atkins guitar collaboration, an all classical rock song laugh.gif

Hey Audiopaal, Been thinking about getting this one, is there anyway you could upload a small sample of just playing a few chords, perhabs a bit of strumming with no effects, would love to hear it.

Thanks, gonna have a listen when i get home smile.gif
Siggum
Sounds awsome man, just in my taste, thanks.
audiopaal
That's great smile.gif
That is just one of the many sounds you can get from it, as there's a volume, bass and tone control on the guitar so you can change the sounds pretty drastic just going into a soundcard without effects as well..

But I'm glad you like it smile.gif
Trond Vold
Nice sample! smile.gif Sounds great
Muris Varajic

Would you mind posting some more,played with fingertips instead of pick?

Thanks smile.gif

I'm pretty happy with the sound as well.

I'll let you know when they're uploaded!
