  1. Tuning stability. First thing I'll do is tune 'er up and play some cowboy chords, then arpeggios, then a few runs. From that, I have the tones, playability and intonation variables accounted tor. From there, if pleased, I'll check out the body's integrity and aesthetics, and go deeper by checking the frets, action and intonation at the nut and 12th fret. So, first sound, second what needs done, and third, structural integrity, and then a deeper pass. If I love the tone and I can determine that a proper setup will get me where I want, and there's no issue with the guitar, I keep it..... Th
  2. I have one of the all solid Supranatura series. I paid €300 for it, and I think it was a steal. Cedar/Hog. I don't see the Supranatura series too often on eBay classifieds.
  3. My D-28 was bought new for €2, 150 in 2014. It's mint and somewhat opened up. I reckon I could easily make back what I paid for it, and maybe a bit more. They go for almost €3,000 new, currently.
  4. I miss CSM, Bb with his 120+ Les Pauls that always elicited jealous responses, and a couple of others. I was always more of a HCAG person, though.
  5. I'd try the Guild. Also, if you don't mind Richlite/Micarta, Sigma has a few inexpensive models. Don't know if they're available there, though.
  6. I've now gone through 3 Taylors: 310; 320; 316. I just sold the 320 to pay for the Martin 16GT I bought in the fall. I find Taylors to be sterile, that top shimmer gets on my nerves after a while, the bass doesn't impress (except on the 320, even though there wasn't great sustain), the neck is not 'all that' for me (I prefer Martin necks). Oh yeah, funny the people you interact with when selling stuff. Someone offered me a 114CE or something for the 320. (Shakes head). Taylors impress me the first couple of times I play them. It took me a while in each case to realize that the shiny moder
  7. Yeah, been playing with it s'more. What I'll be 'working on' (lol) for the next little while, is to try to optimize the GT-1 with my VOX AC-15. It's fun playing around with on headphones, but that isn't really what I bought it for. So, I'll build some custom patches that bypass the Pre-Amps, and just setting up chains of fx to go into the VOX with. It's a fun little box, but the presets are wayyyyy overprocessed, a few in good ways, mostly just toooooo much. So, have to dig in. Luckily, I am familiar with BOSS/Roland gear and their menu layouts. The thing is about 2 lbs., which makes for a cha
  8. I just got a BOSS GT-1. Interesting little gadget. Can be used direct into computer via USB (edited, as well), but mostly I am going to use it with my VOX AC-15. Time to tweak. Luckily, I know Roland's M.O. with their menus.
  9. I am confined to a point, mostly by choice. I am a prime target for this virus, so the only reason I've left our flat is to go biking on the local bike paths. Absolutely no contact with anyone other than my wife. My wife does the shopping, goes to the shops by bike, enters and exits our flat directly, instead of the building's front door. Then washes very carefully. I am increasingly depressed. It has been a rough winter. We had the flu, twice, in Jan/Feb. And now this insanity. My plans for my upcoming 60th birthday had to be cancéled, and the probability of going to Ireland this year is a
  10. The only one of those Gibbys that I've tried and liked was the J-29, but it was no D-28, one of which I own. You want the real deal, then fet the real deal.
  11. Wine and flowers. Always worked for me!
  12. Maybe look up tutorials on YT? I'd like to learn, too, but it isn't realistic for me at this point in my life.
