...I'll throw in a set of D'Addario EXP42 long-life strings - I read an interview with Jerry Douglas where he said he switched to these after getting tired of those EJ42s going dead after a couple of hours....they work great on the M1...

If I could only get an M-1 moved from the wish list to the needs list...

For those who haven't heard one of these, the complexity of the tricone sound and warmth of the wood body is a great combination.

12th Fret Music did a comparison of 5 squareneck Nationals, emphasizing bluegrass...here are the M1 samples:

And their conclusion:
"Huge bass response: round, woody, fat tone. Good treble response but warmer than the metal body guitars."

I bought a used Gold Tone 8 string w/ Beard setup from 12th Fret and it sounds awesome. I don't know if they had anything to do with that, but they have my trust.
