Sister 1 is in good company with Roger's 1928 L5 and 1933 L12.

Love the guitar. Back of the neck is already glossing up a bit from my playing. Aesthetically gorgeous for sure. Setup almost perfect for me, just tweaked a few basic things as she settled into the new climate and surroundings. Pickup is warm, crisp, and dynamic. Intonation and tuning stability - really great (I'm a big critic of such things on many guitars).

The balance of acoustic and electric sound is terrific. I love it! Having acquired the old L-5 a year ago, which really just ended the archtop quest for me, I was not planning to buy another expensive instrument. But the Metheny connection was too much to resist... However, on a pure musical level, I'm very glad I jumped at Sister #1. She is going to make me happy, Metheny DNA or not.

Thank you again for a wonderful guitar.
