    Where's GAD?

    Is it just me, or has GAD been missing for a couple of days? Who's driving the bus?!

    1959 x-150 pickup, old or new?

    Does the pickup on this guitar look too pristine to be from 1959? The guitar is currently for sale on Reverb.

    Dan D (Anyone familiar with this band from Slovenia ?)

    Accidently ran across this group on Youtube and noticed one of the members playing a Guild something-or-other.

    Why do these guitars have VERY similar (if not identical) fretmarker inlays? Excuse the duplicate pic.

    Flat Wounds on a Dreadnought?

    At the risk of sounding like the village idiot here's my question: Has anyone ever used flat wounds on their dreadnought? If so, how did it turn out?

    My wife's ears

    I practice my jazz "repertoire," such as it is, on my X-175 through a Princeton Reverb amp. This morning, though, I drug my Strat out of the closet to play. My wife, a very good pianist, comes into the room. I ask her if she could tell I was playing a different guitar. She said, "yes, and it...

    Proper bridge on a 1965 Starfire II

    Does anyone have a pic of what the proper metal bridge looks like on a 1965 Starfire II. Mine has a rosewood bridge, but H. Moust has informed me that it is not what was normally put on a Starfire of this year. I'd really appreciate a pic from one of the experts here on LTG.

    Guitar Repair Book Reviews

    I'm not planning on attempting guitar repair, but would like to know more about the "guts" of acoustic guitars. Is this book by Don Teeter familiar to anyone on LTG who would recommend it ?

    X-150 on Reverb -- Shape?

    I believe there was a thread on this subject already, but here goes again. Does the x150 now on Reverb look a little strange when you look at what seems to be an elongated horn on the cutaway side? Bad photo, change in shape by Corona, . . . ?

    Your experience with the Korean A-150

    Anybody own one of these? How is it REALLY? It interests me because of the top which doesn't have a pickup embedded in it.

    Who is Kaiser Soze? I mean, "Ren".

    Who is this Ren person whose name I keep stumbling on in various threads? Obviously someone of great stature in the Guild world.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a good general history of the guitar, along the lines of Jay Pilzer's book Six String History of America ?

    Starfire sighting

    Just watched a video on Youtube from the Wes Montgomery Guitar Competition from 2015 in NYC. One of the contestants (in the wine colored suit) is playing a Starfire.

    The Sound of Fret Buzz

    I've noticed on some old jazz stuff (e.g. Wes Montgomery) a fair amount of audible fret buzz on the guitars being played. I kind of like the vintage vibe it gives to the performance -- kind of like scratchy LPs. Just curious about other folks reflections on this. Are there any of you who...

    Just saw where the NDR Hamburg studio recording is coming out in March. This may be old news to some, but I was excited to see it!
