    My 10-string classical guitar. A Belgian composer, Gilbert Isbin, wrote new compositions for me to play on it, and asked for an image to adorn the cover of the forthcoming publication. I don't have a pro set up, but think these look passable. I took colour as well, but we both prefer the b&w.

    And, just in case you are curious as to how it sounds...

    Nice! - both the images and the guitar, that is.
    I had no idea that such a thing existed, though my wife has a rather lovely old 9-string, a-la Big Joe Williams.

    Fine images, like the 2nd one best, it shows the most detail. You play beautifully too sir!

    The 4 Scottish Lute Pieces are beautiful, Rob. Lovely axe, too! For what it's worth, of the three images I think the middle one shows off the guitar in a way that is more to my liking. The woodgrain is visible and the top of the headstock doesn't get completely lost in the blackness. However those horizontal white lines on the right are distracting.

    Cheers, lads.

    @Brian Moore - I know what you mean about the distracting white lines, but guess which one the cover designer went for!

    Actually, the one with a hint of background is my favourite too. And I like the hint of toning as well.

    Looking forward to listening to the recordings a bit later on.
