HA!  I should be more like 180.  I was 155 when I got married 22 years ago, but I was thin.

I wish I had a guitar with me!  I'm stuck at the ER with my wife.  She's had a spreading rash and puss around the 5 openings from her surgery last week.  7 hours and counting!

But I'll be working on getting down to 225 (I'm 6' 2-ish") before I turn 51 in April. My 30 additional pounds are definitely more round belly than muscle.

I usually hover between 212-216...probably would be best around 190...for you metric people, that's pounds, not kilograms ;-)

FG - I am exactly the same height and weight.

Ah - the "Round Belly" - I have a kind of medium-sized one installed at the moment... ;-)

I'm 6'1" - about 215...

I liked the tone of those Ovations, but the round backs don't work with my "Round Belly". ;-) An Ovation was my stage acoustic back in the day, and worked well standing up with it, though I didn't yet have my "Round Belly" installed yet.

@FG - all on my iPad Air, which this site or this device won't allow me to upload pics. I'll have take some and upload from my PC. I'm having fun playing it, though tuning, and restringing are a bit of a sweat. Still, I've played it more than any of my other guitars since I got it. Love to play the Travelling Wilburys tune, "Handle With Care" on it, along with some old Bryds and Dylan tunes. ;-)

Phil - where are the pics of your "new" 12 string?
