  1. A friend of mine who plays solo gigs, all instrumental (no vocals) swears by his and he’s a pedal head. I think I will pick one up. If/when, I’ll report back. thanks!
  2. Yes or no? Show your work. 😉
  3. I’m way late in reporting back, but I bought the Martin OME and love it. No regrets and I got it for $400 less than asking. It supposedly has a blemish, but neither I, nor the Salesman, nor a guitar tech could find it. In my mind, if I don’t see it, it doesn’t exist. I’m looking for a tower system. Either the low end Bose L1, the LD Maui 5, or maybe the 600 watt Turbosound. Possibly, but less likely, the boss S1 or turbosound inspire 300 as well. many thoughts or opinions?
  4. I literally had never heard of this guitar maker until yesterday. I’ve only heard YouTube demos on my phone, but they sound good in general, and amazing for the price. when I Recover from the Martin purchase I recently made, I may well pick one of these up as a daily knock-around-er.
  5. Yamaha, Seagull, possibly Breedlove. It’s been a while since I’ve paid attention to Breedlove, though, so I don’t know if their entry level instruments fall into that price ranged. Maybe used.
  6. I was blessed with re-admittance recently myself. I’ve been slow to post, though. I think for me, it’s mostly that I don’t participate in forums as much. IT wasn’t some big decision I made, I just noticed at one point that I don’t visit forum sites like I used to. Trying to refocus here.
  7. Nay from me, but YMMV. If you get a good one, the sound is passable, but I can’t get used to the round back, and I’ll admit to having a prejudice against plastic on a guitar.
  8. Mine. Although the player stinks.
  9. This. Most new guitar players start on lower cost instruments and don’t know about the benefits of a good set up. Having said that, all of us here completely understand that sometimes you just want a new guitar. Try the Taylor’s, but also check out the Breedlove discovery or pursuit series. Breedloves have a wider string spacing that helps those of us with ten thumbs. You may find more bang for the buck from Breedlove, because you’re not paying for the name. Much. Eastwood’s are also excellent guitars.
  10. That’s a great story. I live in Kentucky and read an article on it a while back. They are in the middle of the Appalachian mountains, and bluegrass music is their lifeblood. Also, “Troublesome Creek” is a great name for a town (actually I think it’s unincorporated land within the county.)
  11. I survived it. She, my daughter, and 3 year old grand daughter we’re gathered in the kitchen when I told her. I had already gone through steps 1&2. I’m sure she knew what was coming, having been through this exercise before. Her response was (almost verbatim) ”oh really? That’s nice. By the way, we are going shopping (wife and daughter) and we need you to watch Vivian today. Everybody wins.
  12. Some years ago I bought a guitar from a guy who lives in the area. He gave me very specific instructions on where to park, and which door to knock on when I arrived. He had me park in front of the neighbor’s house and walk through some trees to a side door that entered his garage. He opened the door and we walked through the garage into the basement. I bought the guitar at a great price. I asked him why I basically had to sneak in. He said his wife has no idea how many guitars he owns and he did not want her to find out. If she knew he was selling one, but still had the couple that she knew about, he would get in trouble. Ha. Oh, and he was selling the guitar I bought so he could buy a Taylor T5.
  13. I used that excuse for years, until I gave up playing live. This time, I have a three step strategy. 1. Tell her “in passing” that I have a slight twist in the neck of my Takamine, which is true. I’ve never had mire than three guitars at a time, and I was always careful to make sure she knew the differences. 2. Tell her I need to buy a new one. She’s been with me long enough to know that there’s a difference between wanting a guitar that I like, and “needing” one. 3. explain why I had to go ahead and buy, because I got a heck of a deal from year end specials. This step will be today or tomorrow.
  14. Allegedly. I’m supposed to pick up the new Martin OME Cherry. Fingers crossed. Oh, I haven’t exactly shared the good news with the wife yet. Still working on a strategy.
