I saw that you purchased a Mendel a short while ago and I'm interested to hear what you think. If it's the one that's listed on his site as "sold", nice choice. I'm in the market and haven't yet had a chance to play a bunch. I'm curious to know what it sounds like and how many OMs you tried out before your purchase. If you had a chance to play a few of Joe Mendels - what did you think of the others? I may have my eye on that Adi/rosewood. Well, I hope you're happy with it! Thanks for your time. Enjoy!
