hi there all been a while  , i also got side tracked  , got to say sorry for not putting some pics up but i have to add  that my finger picking  or in my case finger less picking is going along great and took your advice and you just develop your own style  and its a bit knoplerish where  i use my  thumb to pick any string and  notr just as a  base note strum if you follow my drift but my second finger seems to be the most worked   but alas i have another  major problem in being that i changed the strings on my d10 sz and  fitted ernie ball  super slinkys  and they are a disaster on this guitar and i have lossed the sweetness  and in the process  i cut  the strings seperatley with my side cutters instead of unwindindind them off the post  and just binned them  instead of putting them aside for a while and now there is no chance  of knowing what they were and i have lossed  the email address of the lady i bought it off   but havre had a brain wave if  pay pal  keep my records of 3 or 4 years ago   any how does anyone know what  they are fitted with when they leave the factory  any help please    and please dont take offence at the ernie ball strings  they are just not right for my guitarr  regards  forby

Hi lads  the zebra wood sounds plausable for the z as the sides and the back are stiped and the binding is a cream colour a very nice looking  guitar and it cost me about$ 75 including a stand digi tuner and a decent gig bag so not a bad deal   regards  forby
