    So, I was in New Hartford last night...

    I did a workshop with the New Hartford Board of Education last night and made a point of showing them my laptop's desktop - my NH-Built D-55! Sadly, none of them knew about Guild Guitars - they did show some pride in the fact that Ovation is back in town.

    This is the story of my life. One of these days, I'm going to start asking my co-workers to name the four Beatles. I'm betting the vast majority will have trouble naming one.

    Just after the first LMG tour in New Hartford, I mentioned the tour to my principal, who lived in New Hartford at the time. He was aware that they were making guitars there, but thought it was Gibson.

    They sure do. If you haven't tried an Adamas... Do.

    I never gotten a chance to play any Adamas models but one, and it was a shallow bowl version, so it was pretty flat acoustically. I WANT to try some of the others, but, they fetch a pretty good sum, even now.
