I really do enjoy these pieces. Are my ears just unusually clean today or does that guitar have an exceptional tone?

And I really do enjoy the kind words! I recorded "Lullaby of Broadway" at the same session, that'll be out in a few days.

There are only two truly difficult things in life:
1) Make a guitar sound good.
2) Record a good sounding guitar.
Chasing these keeps a few percent of GDP in motion. While the new SG does indeed have a lovely tone, I also think I have made some improvements in item two over the years. I must endeavor to get the big archtops out again and try to better share how nice they sound in the Coffeehouse Studios.
