    Would you go Single-Cut, or Adrian-Cut?

    I'm really torn. My wife likes the AG cut a lot better, so that may be the deciding factor.
     
  2. That's though, AJ. They're both really nice. Before the NX shape debuted, my favorite was the SC. So that's what I voted for.

    Can't go wrong either way though!

    Thanks Bernie. I think that NX does throw another wrench into it. Decisions, decisions.
     
  4. Isn't that the truth! I've been battling this for awhile. :meh:

    How many strings will it be? I personally like the AG cut more, but that new NX has some potential and it looks like it works really well for the seven string body for example.

    I personally wish Carey would design a second single cut that had a symmetrical body and perhaps different style upper horn. I love his work but never really dug the SC shape he has even though I tend to prefer SC's overall. I suppose this can be my public request to Carey. :p

    I really am not that big into the whole SC look, but Carey's is surely favorite so far. You can't go wrong with either selection, but to me, I'd probobly opt for the double cut.

    I went with the double as well. I dig the Nordie SC's more than others, but that AG double cut is just so beautiful.

    i went single cut but i may have to change my order to the new NX design. its starting to grow on me and i have to see it in a 5 string model before making the final decision.

    I went SC :p But I think the AG is hard to beat if you prefer the traditional-ish double cut shape :)

    I like the AG cut better. The single looks too bulky and gaudy IMO.

    The AG cut also has a nicer looking woodgrain/texture/color to it too.

    It's gonna be a sixer. I totally agree with you on the second single-cut design. I'd love to see him do something like this (the body style that is):

    Carey's single cuts are starting to grow on me.

    I have a Nordstrand SC5 and that's how I voted. But I
    really do like the AB (Adrian) body style. And the NX body
    is really growing on me so I might have to talk to Carey and
    Adrian about a new Nordie. :meh:
    I would really like to see a 5 string version of the
    NX body style.

    I prefer the singlecut. Carey's singlecut is my favorite. Matter of fact, the only other one I like is the Fodera Emperor II.
     
  16. It's at 21 and 22 in favor of the AG style. Hmm... It's gonna be close!

    I'll make it one more for the AG-style cut. I'm kinda traditional.

    Obviously, it's ultimately up to you. But I have always found single cuts to be absolutely horrible looking, so my voting was very biased. :)
