James (my eldest son) borrowed this when serving in Afghanistan with 45 Commando Royal Marines... Great, if not difficult memories but I have now managed to recover it from his sticky hands. I travel with it all the time as it can be checked as hand luggage.
The fingerboard on this instrument is refreshingly wide and for such a small guitar it has a big sound! It is 3/4 size and consequently a doddle to play and great to travel with.
Recently, when recording my latest album 'The Knife', I restrung it using Nashville Tuning for the song 'Dreamer'. Unusually, I replaced all the strings with their octave counterparts which gives the track some jangly top end to compliment the dark valve Wurlitzer piano.
