    Update at bottom (Didn't want to start a new post)



    Wow did I miss the boat on these things when they were released. I had dismissed any guitar with a rosewood neck after having bought a CU24 with an Indian rosewood neck years ago and I hate the tone of it. However, after picking up a DGT private stock from a forum member with a Ziricote neck and loving the tone and feel from that, I decided to give Brazilian rosewood a shot and man I have been missing out!

    These guitars feel so amazing with the neck and the soft finish on the top. Nice worn in feel. And they both sound amazing.

    Weight! My lord these things are heavy. The singlecut is 10lbs!! the DC is around 8lbs 13oz.

    Anyway, really enjoying these 2 new additions to the family and it is fun rediscovering guitars that were released a while ago.

    New ME Day!

    A collector reached out to me and let go of his unplayed 2004 ME1 in faded blue jean. I was really happy it was a different color than the other 2 and now the trifecta is complete. The neck on this one is amazing looking!

    Beautiful guitars!

    So do you hear a tonal difference between East Indian Rosewood and Brazilian Rosewood or is it mostly a 'feel' type of difference?

    Oooh yeah! That's the good stuff right there. ME's are wonderful and your DC looks like it's one of the 2012 "NOS" ones that got the best combination of 2005 wood and 2012 hardware. :cool:

    It has been 4 or 5 years since I had the Indian Eastwood guitar. It was a guitar Center 45th anniversary model and had a wide thin neck. It was just dark and dead sounding. At the time I blamed it on the neck, but maybe it was the entire guitar. Maybe some day I will pick up a ME2 and see if i like that.

    Feel wise, they feel the same to me and so does the Ziricote neck. The bare naked feeling.....

    I gotta try ziricote especially if it feels like Brazilian Rosewood. I wonder if it has similar tone attributes.
