    Yes, all I have is the DV52 designation, I guess the rest is up to me?

    This is some nice playing, but something about the recording.... Are you guys hearing the bass strings at all? I see him striking them in the viddie but don't hear it. I wonder if that's his pickup or what? Could be my system. (?)
    Thanks Chaz, and very warm New Year wishes to all.

    Here's a video of KJP that I posted a year or three ago. Many won't have seen it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7aSCeN01BFA

    Happy New Year Gary! I seem to remember a Kelly Joe Phelps signature model that was made in Tacoma some years back, but I can't seem to find any info on it now. Might be a geezer moment!

    Thanks Ralf, but you didn't say what day the strings have been put on the guitar...! (or at least what week)

    Just kidding of course. That's a very precise answer : I had been watching quite a few DVs lately (mostly DV 72s and 73s), but I hadn't been able to identify a DV 52...The rather unusual colour fooled me I bet...
    So thanks very much...

    Chazmo (and others...) : it's quite right after all that the bass notes are a bit weak : it didn't bothered me first when I listened to the first track, but I now understand better after listening to it a 2nd time. Probably more of an aesthetic choice I'd say, but maybe the pick-up (or the guitar) is a bit under-mixed (?)... Still like it this way...

    Thank you

    He may very well have one of those units, but that's a Sunrise pickup!

    Thanks for the correction! You are correct! I should have looked better at the video, yes, only 6 pole pieces and not 12... I had read the following here: "Now, like many acoustic slide players, he uses a Sunrise pickup, but he installed a new Seymour Duncan Mag Mic, a combination of magnetic pickup and internal microphone, on his Guild". That's why on quick look it looked on the DVD like a SD Mag Mic.

    As Volume II is still not available I can only guess the HG versions all had abalone rosettes and the satin versions came with herringbone rosettes.

    That's not the clue! There's also a Seymour Duncan pickup that has 6 pole pieces!

    The real clue is the shape of the pickup.
