Hello hello!  I wanted to post this message I sent to Glen @ Green Mountain.  I try to articulate my thoughts better on another post and definitely I'll be adding some pics soon.  Thanks for letting me share this experience with y'all, it's made it special for me to do that.

Hello Glen,

You are amazing! This guitar is nothing short of spectacular! It's perfect. Your attention to detail and craftsmanship is top notch and it's a wonderful sounding guitar. Very loud! Sustain goes on for ever, clear and clean tone with some overtones beyond say a sitka or even Italian spruce topped mahogany, but no where near as much overtones as I hear from the cocobolo guitar.

The feel is great, the neck is exactly what I wanted and the fan fret 1" difference in scale came out real nice. Love the tone, the inlay, and all the special feature you created.

I just wrote out a check this morning to send to you, I'm sorry for the delay. I will send a few pics your way sometime soon so you can see your guitar with its new owner, perhaps it will send a video as well.

  Seems to me you have a players collection par excellence now. (Is that the right way to say you got the gits I like?)

Hello Y'All!!

I have been enjoying this fine guitar and wanted to post a final review, sound bites, and pics.

So fun to play.  Beautiful.  Very easy-playing guitar, feels real good and the tone is tough to beat anywhere.  Load, clear, a bit more complex than a mahogany/sikta but nothing like a rosewood/sitka.  Bass is not exactly booming but very pronounced the notes are very well balanced up and down the scale.  What else is there to say?

Here are some sound bites, first takes so excuse the rough playing on them and the terrible singing on the Blind Boy Fuller tune.  

Green Day SD Walnut
Keb Mo' SD Walnut
Robert Johnson SD Walnut
JPiazza SD Walnut

Here are some pics:

That's me, my new Green Mountain SD Walnut, and my Bigalli summer lid!

For some reason I always have problems playing ReverbNation files (it stops buffering at 0%).  Anyway, great looking guitar.  How do you like the soundport?

Joseph-- You look so happy under that new lid.  The Green Montain sounds great and so does your playing.

It looks like it's equipped with a pickup.  I've read that black walnut can be a bit fussy with pickup preferences.  What's your experience been?

           DAVE            nice guitar

I wouldn't know about a pickup, it doesn't haveone, Glen just uses that endpin so that if I add a p/u, the hole will be the right size.  I gotta think that with a good pickup and amp though...most acoustics would sound pretty good no matter what they're made of

Well Joseph, you have "your guitar". It's a beauty, and thanks for sharing all the experience so far with us.
