    Collings owners?

    Well...I typed in Collins on ebay and found this. It's a start anyway, but doesn't say if it would work for a Guild.

    Holy Freaking Square Neck!

    Thanks for posting!! Great stuff, real talent. I stopped trying to play mine 30+ years ago and based on the videos I doubt daily practice would have brought me to that level!! I have an OMI Dobro Model 36. Looking at that National I wonder if the polish job on it has done anything to...

    Guild D 55 Compared to Martin D 28

    May be a dumb question but wouldn't a D-50 v. D-28 be a better representation instead of the D-55? Oh and Jim, can't say as I totally disagree...but still: Go to your room!!!!

    New to Guild

    Hey Sleepy Otter, sorry for the delayed response. Call Robert MacBlane in Preble, just south of Tully. He is great. I had a similar issue w/a guitar that was severely dehydrated when I bought it. Brought it to him and he re hydrated then did the fix. Well under $200. Took a few weeks but...

    F20 action

    I've been here a few years and I still get amazed at the amount of knowledge and the sharing that goes on here. You may want to forward this thread to your luthier, unless his name is Hans or Fixit he may make the same assumption about that shim!

    If you could only have two....

    GAD said: I bet if you asked most people under 40 they’d have no idea who Richie Havens is. Wasn't he Nick Drake's back up singer?

    Just in case you didn't have enough to worry about

    Closest I ever came to a bear was one day about 12 miles from the trail head. We were below a ridge bushwhacking to a pond on the map. You could see a faint herd trail heading that way which we picked up to make the going a bit easier. Well we saw a large steaming pile of scat dead center...

    I do not follow or watch news anymore....(no politics discussion please)

    David Muir is a Syracuse native, near where I live. I'm embarrassed. It's not reporting anymore to me, it's a "show". I'll "read" numerous sources but outside of local weather at night or in the a.m. I don't watch anymore. EDIT: RE Sandys graph. Didn't really think Vanity Fair was all that...

    I bought a bass......

    (By the way just out full disclosure, that's me. I added the chords since I was playing it solo!) Impressive!! And new terminology...Bass Line....I feel like such a newbie! Gilded, I saw that a few days ago while I was researching the guitar prior to pulling the trigger...thanks!

    I bought a bass......

    Ok, so he is playing alone...Maybe a bad example but if he was playing along with a guitar would he be playing that "detailed" riff?

    I bought a bass......

    Always liked the studio version of this song. My wife doesn't care for it at all..says it's dark. Bass is quite different from playing lead. While both might be playing single notes, bass usually is playing a pattern. The trick is to be able to play the pattern in time! Understood! The...

    I bought a bass......

    Yeah your comments were pretty positive save for the volume from "x" feet away which won't be an issue for me for a bit!. You made it sound very versatile. I can't play a lick of lead but for some reason I'm pretty optimistic I can find my way around a bass. I played bassoon and baritone...
