I love my 000-60 for bare fingers. Sounds GREAT. It's rather bright when you use a pick. So the 40 has the modified bracing, right? Half Larrivee/half Martin? Looks nice!

Just means you're not using the right pick. I use different picks for acoustic and electric. I like a thinner (medium) pick on electric to keep the snap and sparkle there, but on acoustic, I want to tame the twang of the high strings, while not losing the snap on the lows...I've found a few picks that straddle this very nicely - but they're not the same picks I use for electric.

Matt's had that OOO-60 a long time and knows it's traits well. He has other guitars for strumming and is a good player.

Thanks. Personal preference I suppose. I generally use pretty thick picks. Usually 1.0. I very rarely use anything less than .88 Anything less than that sounds clicky and plays sloppy for me. If I'm strictly strumming, which is the only case where a thinner pick would even be considered, I'll just use my bare hands including backside. Then there's different materials of picks which make a difference. Now I haven't used a felt covered pick, but short of that and what I've tried, still bright. There's a couple songs when recording where I used a pick on it when I wanted something that really cut thru. But generally I shoot for a warm blanket sound for rhythm. I don't mind it being limited to my ears because it has a finger picked sound that my other guitars can't match. Otherwise the Pete Anderson is very warm. The dread is medium warm but sparkles as well, and the old L is in the middle. When I get 000 out again I'll revisit. But it never leaves the house as I wouldn't gig with a 12 fret due to playing a lot of lead which often goes high. And when I'm home I can just grab a warmer guitar. :)

Ha posting at the same time. But yes I've had it 10 years now. Had only the old L for 27 years but when I turned 50 I started treating myself to more guitars. I had earned it!
Here's an 2 examples of what I was talking about with 000-60 pick vs bare fingers. Just home recordings but not bad.

Dream About Angels with bare fingers. Sounds wonderful to me.

Love At First Site   This is one where I wanted a bright sound so I used a pick on it. Not sure but I may have knocked a little highs off with EQ, which I'm usually close to straight up.

Matt,
Those are great.
I also liked (a lot)....
"Sweetwater"   https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13240710
and especially.....
"Flight of the Redtail"   https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13116861
during which at 1.53 an astounding measure happens where you sing "Saddle up and watch the redtail fly.. Wooo!" and simultaneous with the "Wooo" is the last chord of the banjo leading into the mandolin solo. Complete utter perfection. Total exuberance. I must have listened to those 4 seconds or so 20 times.
Mike

Thanks, The songs on that page are almost all originals BTW. I considered myself more of a songwriter than player for most of my life. I'm starting to figure out the guitar a little now in my old age I guess.

So you bought it From a guy in Florida and then you sold it to someone in Michigan and then you bought it back again; is that right Danny?
That doesn’t sound like such a simple story to me.
I re-read my post. "sold it,for unknown reasons to me" is probably my bad grammar, causing the misunderstanding.
    I just didn't know why it was sold originally, from the forum member in Florida.
    That's what I get for dropping out of high school.  blush
