Re: Dreadnaught for my son

looks great Al well done again. Be interesting if your son learns to play different, changes his style etc when he gets this instrument bit like when your young and you get a better car to drive might not thrash it like your last one.

Re: Soundhole or removable pickup?

I have a Fishman Neo D sound hole pick up that have used many times it is there cheapest bottom line pick up sounds good and would recommend cost me $75 second hand from ebay. Definitely need a decent DI or pre amp if you are going into a PA.
