Yes, thanks, but can you link to the old thread in the first post, so we don't completely lose track of it?

Welp, that's kind of annoying "closing" the other one though. I wanted to quote something someone had posted and now the software doesn't let you. Oh well.

Why not quote it from there and post it here?

It's 50 minutes from home on a large lake, not lakefront but lakeview about 300 yards from the beach. It's only 760 sq ft but laid out very well. We got a good deal as it's been vacant for a few years (elderly owner) but it's in great shape. As a bonus, one of my friends and bandmates has the place next door and knows some of the history and even the person that built it.

I don't fish

Fishing or not, being that close to the lake sounds wonderful!

We're happy. We've been looking for a year or so and this one suits our needs.

well, i bought it in 2020 and the thread locked yesterday. It's and Emerald Guitar made in Ireland. I can only compare it to my high end taylors. The 4 Taylors are in the closet forever, the X20 is that good. unfortunately, Taylor has flooded the market with a buy one get one so my closet will stay full for a few years. This x20 cost me $2300 delivered in 7 days. It takes 4 months to have one custom made, which i do plan on doing.

I'm already trying to psych myself into springing for 1st class airfare when we are next able to return to the mainland for a sabbatical from Paradise. We missed last summer, so figure maybe we can blow that dough this year. It will be difficult - even though we can afford it. I guess we'll see - watch these pages as YMMV.
