This is something of a repost, as I replied to the thread about the best acoustic I'd ever played. But, for those that aren't reading that thread, here's my new guitar. It's a 1920s Tonk Bros Lyon and Healy, rebuilt by Dan Lambert out of El Paso. He rebraced it, built a new bridge, and put two carbon fiber rods under the new fingerboard. This thing is made for tone, and not for looks. The weird discoloration on the lower part of the guitar might be old sun damage. Who knows? The bottom line is that it sounds so good. It's balanced, and rings for days. If you're in to the old & funky, check out Dan's work. I'm super impressed. So much so that I'm already planning on sending him another two guitars!
