Hi - I actually live in Hillsboro, OR, a Portland suburb. I'm a retired radio broadcaster and long-time folkie. I really like the Coda and its sound, but have been hesitant to practice - I live in an apartment, and since it's a 55 and older building lots of folks are here all day (like me). Just logged in again and see that a Silencer is now available! I'm putting in my order today and hope I can get in a lot more practice time. Thanks Karl!
