I just have to post and tell everyone about another great builder that we have here on the forum. Glen DeRusha of Green Mountain Guitars. In my opinion, Glen builds some of the best playing and sounding acoustics out there today. He also builds and prices for the common working man, so when you check out his site and see his base price, dont let that fool you. I have one of his customs, a Dread with wedge body, fanned frets, sound port and it is hands down one of the best acoustics I have ever played !
Here are my specs.....

The compensated frets look weird, but I bet it plays like a gem. Glen sounds like he's got some building skills.

When playing, you dont even notice that the frets are not standard. I have handed this to alot of players, everyone said the same thing, "you really cant tell the difference"

But when it comes to tone and balance, thats when you can really hear the difference it makes.
