"I have a Kyser and a Shubb for my Taylor 150e with 1.875" (1-7/8") nut. The Shubb wins hands down for intonation, the Kyser tends to pull the low E out of tune because of it's higher tension (considerably higher than my Kyser 6…"

S6 Original vs Entourage Dreadnought

I thought I posted this last night but don't see it anywhere so will post again, sorry if a repeat.I've had my eye on an S6 Original for a long time now. Stopped at Guitar Center Friday to have a dose of S6 enjoyment, had other business also. But darned if they didn't have any left. So I picked up an Entourage Mini-jumbo and then an Entourage Dreadnought. Big mistake. Now I can't decide between the S6 or the Entourage Dreadnought. The tone of the Dreadnought is what I've been looking for. The…See More

The entire shop stopped working to watch this exciting moment, after which Shin received a standing ovation (well, we were all standing anyway). …

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly. I am amazed at how cleanly both bindings look.  Some finish touch up will be required, but the overall appearance is more than…
