you may be sorry you asked !it's a jumbo sized kay ,covered on the top and headstock with mother of toilet seat from a '60's drum kit.chrome coverplate,'27 style o biscuit,good intonation,as compared with my national.it's louder than most wood bodies,probably because of the big lower bout(i love a big lower bout he heh)and jumbo size.allan lummox played it once and smoked the thang.as far as my equipment being impressive,it's just age.i'm 39 and have been playing since i was a teen.it took a long time to get what i have,because i'm one of the cheapest people in the world.my national cost $40 dollars and my favilla cost 9 dollars and fifty cents.thanks for the welcome BTW

i dig,groove man.yeah,when i play solo gigs i sing and play harp in a rack.i also sit when i do solo shows and keep rhythym with my feet.WITH THAT SAID,there are quite a lot of high paying restaraunt gigs out there for solo guitar with no vocals.or i guess i should say instrumental gigs.especially if you are willing to be background music,which is hard to get used to ,but hey,it beats lifting boxes to get paid ,right?if you want to be more of a headliner type guy with instrumentals,it might be better to do lower paying 1 set shows,its harder to keep peoples interest as an instrumentalist.or you could get a nice looking female vocalist to do duos with you.AND WITH THAT SAID,why not develop your voice?? i used to be considered to be a lousy vocalist.now days i get some freelance work as a vocalist ,where i don't even play anything.a lot of people call me a singer(i don't myself,but my audience members don't know that)and love my vocals,but i'm telling you i used to really suck!if you've got the ear to play slide and tune your guitar,you can sing with a little practice,man!
