I thought I’d send you a quick note after playing on my OMG for almost a year now. At this point, I find myself thinking how very comfortable the neck is, and how it’s shape is making me focus more on the mechanics of being a better player.  I’m really liking it.  The guitar itself is a perfect build in my opinion, and the sound is everything and more, especially when in DADGAD.  It is my go to instrument for so much of my playing and inspires me every time I pick it up.  I’m so happy I choose SCGC for my build.
