Well done, Andy...some of these tunes sound a little better on the steel strings. Is that a Buckbee(???) With the metal around the pot?? Those have such a neat sound!!

Thanks, Rob. It's actually a 2014 Eastman Whyte Laydie. :) The strings are nylon (LaBella 17s, IIRC) but thanks to the whyte laydie tone ring and a bridge from Mr. Hooks it really sings!
