Nice bit of picking there, nice guitar, it definitely has that Mahogany tone beautiful. Well done. It the guitar part of the American Dream Series.

It is, AD27. It's been weeks since the last I played it. It feels like a helium baloon compared to the rest of the guitars and takes a little getting used to. At only 4 lbs and lighter strings it felt and sounded strange. Did the recording when I first pulled it out of the closest. Ended up playing it for another hr. or so, then it started to feel normal.
ancient1, Nice. I'd like to see a bit more of that guitar.
Since you're comfortable with the vid thing, maybe a really quick review of it where we can see the whole thing and get some specs and other bits o' playin'.

Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." - Jesus, from Matthew 11:28-30
I told you you were a better player than you thought. That's a very nice guitar so is the black top , can't recall what that top was mahogany or spruce.
thisoldman was right all solid wood does sound better than just a solid top.
I had one acoustic that was all solid wood a 67 Gibson 12 string , I also had a 66 J160E that was not a solid top and I don't recall what the back and sides were and it had ladder bracing. They both sounded great and it's difficult to compare a 12 string which had a smaller body to the 6 string.
Back when I got them they were not even close to what they cost now.
As you know I have 4 solid top 2 spruce and one Mahogany one Ceder and one laminate spruce and now a laminate parlor mahogany when it gets here.
If I had all my guitars stolen and had to save up then my choice would be the Martin 000 12 fret slot head. Yet $1500 is far more than I could ever gather up.
The recording king has it's own sound . it does not ring out or sustain long but long enough. I imagine the Luna parlor I just bought might sound better , might . I will say the Fender CP60S also a $200 acoustic which has a solid spruce top does ring out and sustains yet it for some reason sounds to bright.
The 2004 AMI almond was a 12 fret all laminate yet that guitar actually sounded better than the 2004 seagull grand parlor with a solid cedar top. Yet that was not made in some factory in China. There are some great all solid wood brands made in China that are much less $ wise maybe in the $700 range.
Sure they can now make great acoustics in China and Indonesia only because of advanced technology but they will never replace an all solid wood American made acoustic , they did surpass the old sears and wards offerings by quite a lot.
I just happen to like parlor size and the largest acoustic I own is the AC340 000 then the EL-00 . I can hear the bass on all of them yet it's a bit more present in the larger models.
