I decided to clean up my guitar collection and after parting with some pieces I received a new acoustic today. It's a triple 0, built by Martin Guitars in Nazareth, PA, USA. I have dreamt of a triple 0 for a long time, but it never fit my wallet.
This is a 000R28-V by Sigma Guitars, which are the official clone of Martin Guitars. I'm pretty impressed by the sound, especially in relation to the price.

As some of you know I've started playing Slide Guitar. I was always fascinated by the sound a slide of metal or glass produces when put over the strings.
In the past I played slide guitar on some tracks, but mostly just for fun, to emphasize a ironic cliché country-esk tone.
I'm currently workin' on a little score for a new 3-minute-shortfilm of my girl that was shot this summer that is planned to be released in the beginning of 2014. I've chosen a folky vibe for the song with elements of a little country-guitar. So perfect for some lap steel-action.
To take it seriously I bought a so called "nut converter". This extender raises the strings, which is necessary for playing with a steel bar without producing bad noise when sliding over the strings. I installed it on an old tele and started improving my sliding skills, I've gotta long way to go fellas!

My buddy Martin Grebenstein from Darmstadt, with whom I studied at FMW, plays his piece "Little Mucous Bag" on a Taylor Baritone Guitar. Enjoy!

Recently got this small Martin LX1E guitar, actually for traveling. Yesterday I was tracking with it for the first time. The Little Martin has an amazing, present ton coming out of this mini-body! Sounds fantastic!
