    With my little Romanian travel guitar doing a jazz blues in F. It looks like G but I'm tuned down a whole step.
    Bars 9 thru 12 utilizes a great Ted Greene chord sequence.

    Heck yea, man! Sounds pretty cool to me, especially considering how small those guitars are. Reminds me of my Martin Backpacker. Music and especially older music wasn't always played on high dollar guitars, those travel acoustics can do a surprisingly nice job approximating some of the grainier recordings of earlier eras. Plus the low string tension makes it fun to play. The only complaint I have about my Backpacker is the balance of the thing (awful nose dive), however yours looks more lute shaped and I reckon that helps the balance a bit?

    It's a little neck heavy but you're right, it gets a real vintage, cheap acoustic recorded tone. My only gripe is that it doesn't play in tune consistently anywhere on the fingerboard. I have retune for every key.

    Glad you all liked it!
