    It took me a while to "get" "0 emotional attachment", then I realized it's because you hadn't owned the guitar for a long time, you bought it intending to put it right knowing it wasn't about the $$.
    BUT....how's the "attachment" now?

    Can you imagine the pressure those poor guys must be under, trying to live up to all the rave reviews around here?

    Enjoy your resurrection of a fine little guitar. I'm a Gibson/Martin snob and the addition of a '63 F30 to my little collection is like a missing puzzle piece plugged in to complete the tone grouping I chase.
    I try to think but nuthin' happens.

    '63 F30
    '57 M20
    '62 Martin 00018
    '31 Gibson L0
    '35 Gibson L00
    '49 Gibson J50

    Very nice to hear the guitar is back in your hands, all spiffed up and making great music. And, of course thumbs up to Tom and Dave.

    Congrats Mike. Sounds like you made the right call all around on getting your baby back into playing shape. Didnít take too long either. Sometimes the waiting is the hardest part. Enjoy!!!!
