Thread: I HATE this site and all of you!

  1. #1

    I HATE this site and all of you!

    Because........there are so many cool guitars and people which make it VERY hard to not buy a damn guitar here!!!!!

    A few years ago I purchased a 73 D-25 with an archback from a member here. I play it almost daily and the tone.......omg......however I do have a serious question:

    I've been reading about 71 - 73 being all mahogany with flat backs...... with a few odd ones went out with the archback. Is this truly the case that not many were archbacks? Is it true they only made all mahogany for those 3 years??

    Side note: I am buying a 71 Martin D-18 to help a family member out....after researching that guitar I'm worried that I won't like the wide neck so I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with it. I'm not a bluegrass guy but apparently it's a good one for bluegrass. If I don't like it....it'll be up for sale/trade for a Guild of course ;)

    Thanks in advance and I still hate all of you!

    It's TwoCogris fault.....I think he's the one that sold me that guitar and got me hooked to this site. It got so bad I had to leave for awhile in fear of blowing out my bank account lol.

    Yeah, you really gotta look out for Sandy. He's a very bad influence.

    I'd like an old D 18. Different enough to go with my D 35. I can live with either neck. I do like a good Martin for bluegrass. So far I've resisted, but I got to play two Brazilian D 28s last week that had a great dry sound, much less boomy than most D 28s I've played. Mid 60s straight braced.
