Dad set up Will's beautiful Maple Scheerhorn today so I shot three quick videos. Please keep in mind I did these with only one take so there are quite a few mistakes. These were filmed with my iPhone.

Experience with Schoonover Modular Spider?

Hi. I have a fantastic R/S Clinesmith that I recieved two years ago. I got the Fishman Aura setup installed by Todd and I am very happy with the guitar. However, I have since then been wondering how it would sound with a ebony capped maple insert. I do not longer play in a band, and do not use the guitar plugged in. I am considering selling the Aura setup, and need to install a spider with inserts.

I have sent a mail to Todd asking if he can provide me with the spider/inserts, but I am also considering the Schoonover Modular Spider. Does anyone here have any experience with it?

There's been endless discussions here whether the fishman equipped guitars loose volume and tone compared to the all acoustic ones. If in fact my guitar will improve with this, then truly all GAS is gone and I will consider my guitar the best in the whole world!! (NO NEED TO SPEND A FANTASILLION ON A SCHE....)
