We see very few CF guitars here in Oz, but I tried a Rainsong many years ago and IIRC liked it about as much as I like good, but not great (to me!), trad acoustics. However, your post reminded me that I tried a deep bowl Adamas not that long after they came out. I loved the deep smooth sound, but the bowl didn't feel comfortable when playing seated. If I ever came across another one, I would give it a serious try though. For while I did think about putting a CF neck on an electric, but that is on the back burner.

Those Emeralds are pieces of art. I'm trying to justify one, but hard to do having to either replace a transmission or a whole car. That an and saving for a trip to Ireland next year.

I'm retiring soon. An X20 would be a nice retirement gift to myself. If you're travelling to Ireland, you could visit the Emerald factory and place your order in person.

Emerald X20 is one of the best acoustic guitars out there, IMHO.

I want to get a Stratocaster, but you have to pay so much for one with decent pickups that I just don't know how I'd ever do it. I like that you can phase between two pickups, it's like the next best thing to a humbucker. Put enough gain through it, pull the treble back a bit, and you've got a poor man's Les Paul.

Mmmm, I want a Vox AC30 to go with it. I've never heard such solid tone as I do in Vox amps. I'm used to playing through a Fender, which is heavily centered toward the treble side. One of those Blues Junior dealies.

I don't have enough money to buy another guitar but, if I were to buy one I would ever get a Guyatone LG-65t like RL Burnside used (https://reverb.com/item/5012079-guyatone-lg-65t-1960-s) or a Parlor guitar like this (https://reverb.com/item/5756790-gret...one-burst-mint)

I just ordered (today) a used Godin Kingpin II with humbuckers. I have a used Deering Goodtime open back 5 string banjo arriving next Tuesday.

Now if all my Ebay listed items would sell so that I can afford all this.

I could be happy with either or both of those - they both have good reputations, and I like P90s.

Well... I haven't heard the word 'No' yet, but I did just have to buy a new car, which puts a damper on the disposable income. It would be sweet to order it in March and pick it up in person in August. Build time is 5 months.
