  1. I have VERY small hands.. and play a lot of instruments... compensating I guess.. HA!
  2. Sort of like drummers...
  3. Thanks all! Mr Backlund.. I remember 'crowd' designing your 57 Chevy-ish guitar... fun times! Ancient, Verne -- some of the old guard .. JJPistols still around? Mazi Bee? I have seen some of the others around in the other forums and of course our esstemeed admin. I know that Aslan had passed away years ago.. what about anyone else from way back when.
  4. I am not a fan of the Kelly/Turner guitars, per se. not weighted the same way and the feel is off. They look the same, but sort of where it stops ..
  5. https://reverb.com/item/11200683-rick-turner-renaissance-rs-6-deuce-flame-maple-sunburst-074 Not my listing.. but this is the guitar I am referring to. Price point is up there... The Michael Kelly was made in conjuntion with Turner guitars. It doesnt have the same electronics nor can I confirm it they are routed/chambered the same. But if you're handy you can add this - https://www.musiciansfriend.com/accessories/dtar-wave-length-undersaddle-pickup-and-preamp
  6. The Turner DEUCE does... same guitar with a humbucker.. lol I understand what your saying about price. I would suggest looking at them used.. My first one was -- and I have been using the better part of 12 years and it was 10 years old when I bought it. The Godin served a purpose -- but I could never get it to 'emote' as I wanted it to.
  7. I had a Godin A-6 ultra. It served it's purpose. I was never in love with it as I felt it was very expressionless. I purchased it as a second to my #1 performer, a Rick Turner Renaissance RS-6. Ultimately, I sold the Godin and purchased a second Turner. I play solo acoustic, and THIS guitar (in my opinion of course) checks ALL the boxes. I found good deals, but the new one on your left retails for $2700. The one on your right has been with me to all the, from boats to beaches from lakes to oceans and every type of pub in between.
  8. Def not Matt.. 🙂 It is pretty bad by us in terms of 'quarantine' and I am not sure the reported numbers are correct. Everytime I turn arround I hear of another positive case or worse .... I have lost all my gigs through May - luckily April was light -- but March went from PACKED to 'whoa!' very quickly... I have been in my basement for my full time job and then just stay here since it's also my 'studio'.
  9. We in the forum are from all over.. and since I haven't been here for a while I figured I would re-introduce myself. I'm a singer/guitarist that plays all over Long Island, NY. I'm a songwriter and a studio vocalist. My main gigging guitars are #1 Rick Turner Renaissance RS-6, An American Strat and a MIM Player's Tele. I'm also a bagpiper. My first claim to fame was being on a TLC show, Four Weddings for a bride that lost (Good.. she skunked me on pay..) and having written a bagpipe tune for a wedding scene in the CW show Reign. I have an amazing wife -- and my son and daughter ain't so bad either! So -- tell me about yourself!
  10. I think the last time you did this was the last time I was here! Collection still looks amazing!
  11. Strange indeed -- but the first time I played one about 12 years ago - I fell in LOVE. The electronics are very expressive... ridiculously so. I sometimes play through a BOSE system, sometimes just 10" QSC speaker depending on the gig.. and everytime someone needs more information about these.
  12. Hey Garthman - If it's good for Lindsey Buckingham and Colin Hay.. its good for me..!!
  13. Boys. Boys -- I guess some things DONT change with time.. haha So --I have $350 in GC gift cards just itching to be spent. i dont want to add money to it. Im just looking for something maybe a little different and maybe even a little fun. I use a MIM Players Telecaster (dual Humbucker) and I found I love it.. and would like a matching LP style. Even it if WAS Epi - though the quality of Epi at the price point I would think isn't as good as Ibanez (or other similiar manufacturers) at that point.
