I'm taking a good hard look at Tom Bowlus's Jerzy Drozd in the classifieds, and was wondering what those of you that have had the chance to play both an MTD and Jerzy Drozd think about either? The Jerzy's have always caught my eye, but since I live so close to Mike Tobias's shop, and considering Jerzy lives in Spain, I'm haven't pulled the trigger yet. As a lot of you know, my MTD has a Mahogany body, burl maple top, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. Tom's Excellency in the classifieds has a spalted maple top, Etimoe body, maple neck, and ebony fretboard. First off, what is etimoe? It looks a lot like mahogany, but does it sound anything like it tonally? I'm looking for something more snappy and punchy, like ash, and not as dark, round and airy as mahogany. Second, anyone know what the string spacing is on the Excellency's?
