  1. I suspect it's due to poor and uneven contact between the base of the saddle and the piezo UST.
  2. I'm surprised that olive wood is not used more for guitars. It is a dense hardwood with beautiful figuring.
  3. No, sorry, I don't recognize it. But I don't think it's a LAG - doesn't look like their headstock logo.
  4. Hello and welcome to the forum. Well it's a long way from being an acoustic. It's a sort of hollow body electric guitar with probably an under-saddle piezo pickup as well as the single coil. I certainly wouldn't pay £1500+ for something like that
  5. Promising? I love drop D. And I love double drop D even better. And I am a 95%+ finger-picker. Do you want to sell it?
  6. I'll wait a couple of days. . . . . . . . 😉
  7. Hello and welcome to the forum. I've never played a Norman but there is lots of info here: https://www.google.com/search?source=hp&ei=qSO3XaLAJsetkwWJoKDwDw&q=norman+b50+guitar&oq=norman+b50+guitar&gs_l=psy-ab.3..0j0i22i30l8j0i22i10i30.828395.836155..836700...0.0..1.400.1726.14j2j4-1......0....1..gws-wiz.......0i131.2Bzq_ip7uxY&ved=0ahUKEwjiuKzfu7_lAhXH1qQKHQkQCP4Q4dUDCAg&uact=5
  8. Oooooooooooh! That's tempting fate!
  9. Good luck, Glenn. My favourite steel string acoustic is my Recording King ROS-16 000 12 fret - so perhaps the Martin will be the one for you.
  10. Yes, I was going to suggest you try a few different postures. When I play - also sitting upright on a kitchen chair - I cross my left leg over my right and sit the guitar on my left thigh. This position produces a slope in the guitar from the neck downwards towards the bottom so lowers your right shoulder. Try it.
  11. Great stuff, Joe. Here is an old one. A stripped down acoustic version of a song by The Psychedelic Furs c.1973 Love My Way https://app.box.com/s/y5ua66tyk6778d5wf1ghno27gk0uluau
  12. Sorry for the late start - just back from a holiday. I will be along later but let's have some music -please.
  13. Congratulations . .. . again.
  14. LOL. Well, just be content with those you have. Enough is enough!
  15. Ah! It will have to be a banjo then.
