Congrats Toaster.

Did you get a good deal on it?

Thanks,  I've been on the prowl for a sunburst too, so when these came along I thought it was time to snag something for myself.  The sound?  So far I like it, it has great volume and the neck is nice and fast.  I like the overall feel.  But honestly, until I change these strings and install a bone saddle I won't really know for sure what I have.  I'm hoping I can coax a little more bottom out of it.

You other Cumberland guys - are you using lights or mediums on yours?  (Always going back to the universal question.... what kind of strings do you like!)

Good for you Toaster. As much as you help everyone else get what they want it's about time you splurged on yourself a little. I use lights on mine, I tried the ultra lights but didn't like them and I use the D'Addario FlatTops.

toaster,

Now that is a sweet looking guitar.  If it sounds bad after string and saddle replacement, you know my address.  Always looking to help out a fellow forum member.[;)]

Very nice! I'm not sure what gauge they were but I had Bro B set mine up with DAddario PB's. Not heavy on bass but the overtones were glorious. Overall I like them alot. Enjoy!

Hey Dave,,

Nice guitar.  I would have thought that you would have played a lot of these.  My preference is Dad bluegrass 12-56.   Lots of bottom end with those.

Ditto what Pappy says! Gorgeous Sunburst, Toastman. I am still using the extra light 10's, hoping for the day my fingers toughen up to go up to 11's then 12's. But I DO prefer the D'Addario Flat Tops.

Congrats! Toaster.  Very sharp. Looks like a keeper.  The bigger the strings the better, (for sound anyway).

Toaster mi amigo!

That's one sweet lady you have there! I have used D'Adarios 80/20 Meds on mine, and recently Martin Bronze Meds on it now. I like the D'Adarios better, but I think I would like em in Bronze better than the 80/20s. Too bright for my style of playing. I have some Martin Silk and Steel I am going to try next, but as of right now, I think I actually like the Vince strings that came on her the best....Go figure!

Congrats on a real beaut!
