Very interesting Dale, thanks for sharing them as well as your great playing ability  Your Renshaw's are incredible.  In contrast, I have smaller hands and prefer the narrow nut widths for comfortable playing.  I am only 5'9" but I also love dreads and jumbos...  I have noticed that you play your maple Les Paul on a lot of the LLB tunes...

sure appreciate you checking this out!  I think you bring up a great point - the neck is our primary contact with our guitars and getting the fit and feel we like is so important.

I love the LP for several reasons and have used it a good bit - thanks for checking out those vids!

Thanks Dale, you have good taste. And like you, I shy away from large guitars.

Two guitars here, both acoustic...

Seagull S6 - my first, still used, but rarely
Larrivee OM-40 - teaburst finish on all mahogany.... a pleasure to look at, even better to listen to!

Comparing body size - the Seagull is just so much bigger. Love the smaller OM size.

My oo is 14" across the lower bout, short scale, 12 fret, rosewood/sitka with 1 3/4 nut. Easy and fun playing and sounds great. 4 1/4" deep. I'd like to have a Collings someday,,,they sound wonderful.
