I had to do some business travelling last week, and toted this little one along with me. Sorry for the poor audio, but I think the vibe comes across. .

As already said that nice looking guitar produces a nice tone. I enjoyed your playing too.

Wow, that is big sound from a small package.  Cool, a travel cbg.

Thanks everyone. Those little boxes do put out a decent sound. They are the perfect size for that short scale, too. I didn't get any bad looks at the breakfast bar, so must not have been too annoying lol. And feel free to cop whatever you'd like - all my licks are stolen anyhow haha! Thanks again for the kind words, all.

I like the sound you get from that and feel quite inspired from a couple of sequences in there. I fear I may annoy some people in the next hotel I stay at with work!

Thing's got a great acoustic tone, and loud (!) especially for one of those little Romeo y Julieta boxes. I have several of those, but haven't used them 'cause I figured they wouldn't sound that good because of the size (I make all-acoustic banjos), but now I'll take a second look! LOVE the title song, "Sonrise", too. You got chops!
