Just back from seeing Martyn and the new Oakwood.  it is definately wonderful, more dynamic range that anything I've played before  - from almost nothing to too loud!  Fabulous action and looks great too.

So, I'm on the list for No 6, lefty modifications as well, plus an appointment with Paul who does the tuning to get it exactly where I want it.

My friend Andrew (a guitarist) and I agree that Martyn is a real gentlemen and overall nice guy, a very enjoyable hour and a half in the Oakwood workshop.

Having 'lurked' on this thread for some time now, I can't hold back any more........ I am number 4!  I think retirement has done something to my brain!

Martyn reckoned the first batch would take about 6 months, but obviously that's a moveable feast.

I have it on good authority that number 10 may have been reserved today.  So know I know where 1,2,3,9 & 10 will be going :)
