    Dream Guitar

    Nah, that's cool. I played a Martin once that I still regret not having bought because the seller and I were off by only $200. It was an Adirondack topped Custom D28. Even my wife thought I should have bought it at the time, but I'm pretty hard headed. I get a price in mind and won't budge. Well...

    NGD ‘86 Black D-25

    Oh cool. That is something that's pretty unique to Guild it seems, an Ovation (but better) made of wood. I've always loved Guild arch backs. Thanks Thomas. West

    NGD ‘86 Black D-25

    Well congrats on that one. Plenty of saddle and that finish looks incredible. I'm the original owner of my D25M, purchased new in '79. They really are iconic guitars in my book. Interestingly, I happened to read just last night that one tool Cordoba brought to California from the east coast...

    Replace Neck for '70s D25

    I know you've already located and ordered a neck, so this suggestion may be pointless, but Hans Moust is a VERY long standing member here and he'd be the first person I'd ask about locating an original neck. Hans may not have one in stock, but he sure might know someone who does. Heck, Hans may...

    Orpheums with pickups?

    If I were moving around a stage, then I'd install a pickup of whatever type you prefer. If I were on a stage, on a stool, I'd mic. West

    Orpheums with pickups?

    :) This thread kind of tickles me a bit. The whole world thought I was crazy when I installed an LR Baggs Anthem in my brand new custom Collings guitar the week it arrived. There's really nothing to the installation if you do the research on installation, answer all your questions in your mind...

    Rockwall set up from Saturday 07/23

    Let me know when you do it again D. We're 100 miles east of you, and just might make the trip if it were on a 70-80 degree day. :) West

    Rockwall set up from Saturday 07/23

    Rockwall is a cool town D. We used to come over there a couple times a year. Mrs. West used to make and sell beaded jewelry and there used to be a supplier of beads and a place that taught the craft there in Rockwall. Gosh we've still got a closet full of turquiose, onyx, coral...

    Man that's great. I fell in love with the DV62 in Arlington, our former moderator "Jeff" had one he'd bring each year. Great guitars. Congrats. West

    What do you feel like the "issues" are Richard? Top cracks, binding issues? It's hard for these old eyes to see. West

    I can't can't wrap my head around being able to play like that having only picked up a guitar 13 years ago. Just amazing. I guess it should inspire rather than discourage us.:) West

    Finally Struck Rosewood D55 Dating?

    Bob, abalone rosettes began in '95 if I'm not mistaken, which coincides with the Fender purchase. She's a beauty. Congratulations. West

    Me too Mikey. In fact, any time I watch somebody like Tommy Emmanuel, I've got to ask myself what the hell I'm doing with these guitars, and why even try? That young lady is now 25. In an interview I watched, she was asked when she first pickup up a guitar? Her answer was that she began playing...
