    I haven't played many shorter scale guitars. It sounds like something to try out. I have liked the Martin 000.

    My ex wife is a very gentle and good woman, a great mom, a good friend, but just was never cut out to be a lover. At least not mine. She brought a lot of light into my life.

    So that flat grain is raised some? That does look like particularly difficult terrain. The flat grain just doesn't sand down evenly sometimes.
