    NGD--Don't make promises you can't keep...

    So after the '97 Starfire II I told myself "That's it! I do not need another guitar..." I was the first one to call about this on local Craigslist--he told me he'd hold it until I could get away to see it. Picked it up a couple of hours ago. 2007 Tacoma build-- virtually flawless--he even...

    NGCD

    Surprised today when my new TKL Guild R30 case was sitting on my front steps. Now, I don't have one of those, but the case will fit most Nationals & Dobros. I got out one of my fiddle edge Dobros and it settled in perfectly. I'll probably mainly use it for transport whenever our group can get...

    Was my guitar the "prototype" for the M240E?

    I got this several years ago from Clark's Music. It has the early M40 DeArmond pickup with the straight sided V/T control. It's not pristine--it has a retouched top which shows wear and repair, binding redone on the front but not the back, but it's my go-to songwriting guitar and is incredibly...

    This just arrived an hour ago: For a 23 year old guitar it looks in better condition than some new ones I've seen--I blame GAD for his enthusiasm for these SD-1 equipped Starfires for its purchase. I know "3s" are preferred, but my X150D has a Bigsby and I love the harp. And I did need a...

    X-150D with Gibson Humbuckers

    So I have a late Westerly X-150D with Gibson pick ups. After getting a 1967 Starfire XII, I know now have to have '70's HB-1s or at least what was probably in the guitar originally. The Gibson PUs fit loosely in the rings, so I'm assuming it had the pre-Corona humbuckers in it--correct? How...

    replacing the Gibson PUs on my Westerly X-150D

    The saga so far: My first electric guitar I got in '64, a Kay Twin-Thin, one day turned into a '63 Polara, thanks to my dad. This was my main guitar until I bought a Supro Martinique in '72 from John Dopyera. By that point I was mainly into old Nationals and Dobro resonators...until I bought...
