  1. Not as good as a Zager. Disclosure: every time I mention Zager on a forum, they send .35 cents to a dog rescue. So that’s .70 whole cents just for twice mentioning Zager in a sentence! 1.05 now! What a wholesome company Zager is (1.40) while being all Zagery! (1.75) 😊
  2. Gotta love the new forum software when it lets you know how long it took for a response, but above “Coach Bill” post, it would be cooler if it said “....meanwhile, NINE YEARS LATER!” and it would be audible in a dramatic voice.
  3. I haven’t seen a Zager ad, thread in any other guitar forum, or heard talk of Zager, well, anywhere, since this thread was started 12 years ago. Is Zager still in business, and is this the only guitar forum that occasionally gets trolled with them?
  4. Looks very nicely done, but that style has its own niche, you either love it or don’t.
  5. Hi Mooch! Out of curiosity and a desire for statistics, how did you happen upon this thread? It is 10 years old😆! As for bearclaw, it’s a look, I like it fine, but my belief is that even if it did have anything to do with tone, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell in any meaningful way, your LAG will sound good to your ears, or it won’t.
  6. Was 2007 a good wine year? I keep mine in D or C.
  7. I used one for 2 weeks on a guitar. No change that I noticed, it’s one of those gimmicks, like homeopathy, that have only anecdotal evidence. But hey!- back to real budget 12- string discussion! I’m kind of smitten with Paul Brett’s offerings, “Vintage”, would love to play one, and they’re pretty cheap if you can find them. https://reverb.com/uk/item/6208803-vintage-viator-vtr800pb-12-paul-brett-12-string-acoustic-travel-guitar-bag-86
  8. Learn slow. Oftentimes excruciatingly slow. Learn about muscle memory. This is just addendum to the advice above.
  9. 🤗And..yet..you..read..MY..post..just..so..you..could..school..me?😉. But thank you for the awesome advice, it is good advice, no matter how ...sarcastic...I’m being now. Alas.. ...... .... ... .... . ... .. . I know. You guys always seem to give it your all in the advice column. It’s just weird watching those “which guitar is best/choose/brand/etc.” threads devolve. Add to that this particular forum’s propensity for orphan posters, some “you don’t know what you’re talking about”, and you have stuff worth reading. And I’m not saying ANY bad advice was given. Carry on b
  10. Definitely a gimmick, but a pretty cool one. I like gizmos.
  11. Gosh, all the lengthy advice, good intentions, and ego is thick enough to cut with a spoon! 😛 OP, you ever think maybe trombone might be better?
  12. Der der der.  Dur dur dyr.  

  13. You could read the threads, just sayin’🙂
  14. Oh was referring to mythical beasts with the like for like.
  15. The wood from a “lawsuit” Takamine. Like for like!
  16. 😝if they do, don’t bet on them reading any posts..
  17. True, but in the spirit of the marketing eBay and Craigslist sellers, there were no lawsuits because they were exact copies and Big Guitar was jealous of all that superior work, which is usually how the marketing of “lawsuit guitars” is presented.
  18. ..and that makes for excellent marketing! It also makes the neighbor kid feel better about his crappy old beat up Yamaha with 10 winds around the tuner posts.
  19. Umm..fix it with a new nut and saddle?
  20. So, you’re the guy that dredged this up. Try cork. I suppose there’s a situation for a softer, wetter pick...but I’m hard pressed to come up with one. Not that John2000 will come back and engage in conversation, if the other 1 post guys IN THIS PARTICULAR SUBFORUM are any indication. Of course, it’s just been a few days, let’s see. John2000, are you a typical one-post wonder? Will you please come back and talk acoustic guitars and soft picks? Pretty please? These regulars..well, they’re ..regular. At least I hope so, nothing like a good morning movement I ALWAYS say.
  21. Hey, NEVER make claims about a knock-off with some of these guys hanging around..
