i just got back from a Christmas party with my wife's hula troupe (halau). there were several sing-a-longs and a talent show. the guy who accompanied the sing-a-longs had an Adamas II 1685-8 12 string. this is the first one i have seen or heard in person and i am so impressed. that guitar simply filled the room with amazing music and made its owner sound like a much better player. i was antsy in my seat until i found a proper moment to get a closer look and steal a few strums. the guy bought it new in the late 80's. i'm gettin' closer to comprehending what you OFC'ers are all goo-goo about. one of these days i will have a guitar like that.

I prefer OFC'er. As in; "Truly OFC'er, I was only playing to pay my bar tab and I thought she was my waitress!"
