    NGD - D40 Hoboken label 1967

    IIRC, Hoboken label was used during the early transition to Westerly, soon replaced by Made In USA. I think 1975 is a little late for a guitar to still have the Hoboken label, but stranger things have happened with Guild.

    Some of the favorite Vinyl we still own...

    I have several thousand LPs, result of 20 years in record retailing. Most are still in original jackets, although an unexpected water problem damaged a dozen or so. The LPs themselves are fine, just cleaned them and played them to check. how they sounded and tracked.

    New Hartford era

    Yep, I've got two and, like the OP, like having nice guitars from my home state. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another one.

    12-string headstock variation

    I think lens distortion rather than perspective. It would be interesting to take the same two pictures with an SLR with a standard lens (usually 50mm) and see if they look the same. I may give it a try later.

    Some of you may have heard of him, I think he's involved in making pretty good guitars: https://www.mcall.com/business/mc-biz-martin-guitar-ceo-retiring-20200716-ilh6qtellbcblj35j5rhfkx3li-story.html?fbclid=IwAR38-JkQUkg1gLpHneBn1pY6znhVxTU8Rjv-6NHEIpXIs1JoMkC_fJwD-GU

    Artist Award acoustic tone

    I don't have much to compare mine with, but, like GAD, I really like its acoustic sound. I can only hope it gets even a little better after I have it set up properly, right now the bridge footing is not sitting snugly, so probably not all the acoustic property is being transferred to the top...

    Reverb Seller Hasn’t Shipped - UPDATE: Resolved! (F212 Content)

    I had a D-12 20 for a while (it was stolen from my sons apartment), and the F-212 was all over it, soundwise., at least to my ears.

    F47 Case Malfunction

    I don't know if such a trade still exists, but in years past people have suggested a luggage shop, they might have a repairman who could do the work.

    F47 Case Malfunction

    I've always been under the impression that the lock was just an added protection to prevent accidental opening in some situations. I guess to keep prying hands away is another reason for a key. I've never locked any of my cases.

    New Strings For F50R

    I've used bothe EJ-16 and EJ-17 on my F-50 blond for years, and the 12 string version on my F-512 (RW). Tried others over the years, always came back to these.
