Why Dude #5?

When did Chris start using Dude #5 as his main axe? I know that he has another one...#14, is it? I was a little surprised to see the #5. I know that Lynn let Chris borrow #5 to record Nickel Creek's self-titled CD, but then he made a custom Dude (#14) just for him. It seems strange that Chris would not primarily use the one that Lynn custom built...can #5 sound that much better? Matt...any thoughts?

I saw him using it on the first Marshall/Thile tour which I think was in 2003. This thread talks about it a little. I remember him talking about it but I don't remember what he said. title=thinking I think he might have always favored the no. 5. Maybe someone else remembers more than I do though...

From what I remember he played #5 on loan for quite a long time while #14 was being built. Then #5 went back to Lynn (?) and was sold. Chris then decided he wanted #5 and had to buy it back. It's pretty clear that #5 is his favorite.
