Thank you all for your supportive comments which mean a lot to me.
Ted (pictureted)... I agree with you that this is the best guitar produced by Yamaha and as good as any of the famous makes. In addition to this one I have an MSG deluxe with the Kahler style bridge/tremolo unit, but not as pretty as this Standard. Both fine instruments designed by English luthier Martin Booth and found for me. Good to hear you're active on the music scene
Klaus...Your comment is really appreciated, thank you.
