Actually, that's pretty cool. Torrified top, I imagine... ;o)<br /> <br /> I have two Native American flutes made from 800 year old Alaskan yellow cedar but this beats them by 7200 years!

SG makes some great sounding acoustics. I used to own 2, but they were players, not lookers. That's not to say that an acoustic made from 8000 year old oak and 3000 year old spruce isn't going to sound great, especially made by Richard Hoover.

The Santa Cruz Guitar Company makes the some of the best guitars on the planet IMO.<br /> <br /> I have one of their "budget" models - A D/PW, with some custom appointments, and it's simply the greatest sounding and playing guitar I've ever held in my hands.<br /> <br /> I wonder what the price tag is on that one?<br /> $$$$$$

All I need to be a cork-sniffer is the resources.<br /> The condescending, haughty derision of inferior products would then come naturally. <br /> Cool guitar, but it could use some fret markers made from fossilized mammoth tusks. See, I'm starting already....:>)

Cool looking guitar.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> FWIW, Janet Jackson is a cork-soaker.

I watched the demo; does the old wood magnify string squeak?

I'd love to hear it live to see if it actually has that much clarity and power in the low end. A finger style instrument for sure. I'm sure you'd pay a right arm, left arm and middle leg for that thing.

They're not doing themselves any favors by publishing that recording. Yes...there's plenty of bass, but the trebles sound very rattle like--maybe the strings are too new. It must sound better in person. But for all the hoopla, they should have done a worthy recording.

To be fair, the article did say the demo was just a quick one, and they plan to record a more thorough one in the future.

I agree too, it sounded too tight.<br /> <br /> I wonder how much different it will sound in 10 years.

Just listened to the recording for the first time through a decent set of headphones. It sounded pretty good although slightly metallic. Could be a new set of strings, but face it, it's a recording. It might sound excellent in person.<br /> <br /> "I wonder how much different it will sound in 10 years."<br /> <br /> That would be the last thing on my mind if I were buying a high end acoustic. It better sound fantastic now. If it happens to break in and sound even better down the road then that's just a bonus.<br /> <br /> Most Santa Cruz acoustics that I have played have been very lightly built with a pretty broken in sound to start.
