    Let's see your stools. Here's mine and why I hate it.

    Do you have a great guitar playing stool/ chair? Years ago I decided to get a dedicated music chair so I bought a Quicklock musicians chair. Here's a photo followed by the reasons why I hate it: 1 its too big, the footprint is bigger than the stool and the back sticks out. takes up space. 2...

    1986 X-500 bridge-is it pinned?

    Soon I'll need some new strings on the x500. I don't want the bridge moving one bit. The intonation is perfect, at least to my ear. I'd hate to have anything change, but I would like to take all the strings off to clean the fretboard. Thanks!

    NGD: 1984 X500. Keeping it in the family

    There's many reasons why LTG is the best place on the net. This is one of the best: @shihan (Dennis) offered this beauty here for members only, asking only what he paid for it (from @GAD ). Simply put, Dennis "left money on the table" with this deal, just to "keep it in the family". A very kind...

    Big Scare: I thought my amp was toast. heartbroken.

    Last night I thought my T1RVT had failed. I was devastated. I powered everything up as usual, but just a thin, quiet, distorted signal. I tried everything, different pickups, pedal setting, went direct to amp. Switched cables. Powered off and re-seated the tubes. No luck. I'm really attached to...

    Impulse NGD... kaboom Detonator

    I haven't bought a guitar for myself in years, but GAS finally got the best of me. So, to avoid buying an expensive guitar - I sent an ebay offer on this Detonator and found it was in my "cart" the next day. Always wanted to try a Detonator, and I should have sooner! I love this thing! When I...

    Found this interesting - you guys know about Creston Guitars?

    I'd never heard of Creston guitars before reading an article about Jay Farrar of Son Volt. His love of Woody Guthrie inspired him to collect some old items from Guthrie's childhood home which ended up in a guitar The Creston...

    Epic NGD part two 1985 D40 NOS

    This guitar, though more plain in embellishments, will be really hard to let go. Its for sale, sorta. Pretty much. But, I did have an emotional moment when I really got to play this guitar at home. I was bringing it into tune, got it just right (these must be newer strings). I start playing a...

    Epic NGD part one 1987 GF60 NOS. My NGD, our NGD, your NGD?

    I'm happy to bring these guitars into the fold here. Even though I don't intend to keep them, it was such a thrill to bring them home. As posted in another thread, my friends who own a pawn shop bought two Guild acoustics in Southern California at a movie/TV production studio auction. A story is...

    Looper advice

    I think I want a looper pedal for fairly simple self accompaniment. Just for guitar but I wouldn't mind a mic input. I want to be able to record and toggle between at least three song parts-ie verse chorus bridge. So, it seems I need a three track (or more) looper. I've never used one. Any...

    Fingerstyle technique question: muting strings

    I'm playing with a fingerstyle arrangement and I'm unable to accomplish the sound I want for certain sections. A muted string sound. Playing with a pick, I use the technique of resting my right palm on the strings just forward of the bridge to limit the sustain. Pretty standard technique...

    Maybe I need a refret?

    I really haven't paid much attention to fret wear over the years, but a recent restringing with fresh eyes got my attention. I had to set the action higher than ever to lose fret buzz around the 12th fret. I trust a local shop to try and level and dress as best as possible. If I need a refret, I...

    Garage sale find: vintage Duane Eddy

    ... vinyl album. Couldn't help but grab this LP for a dollar :) I thought it would be neat to find somebody that owns a guitar like this. Maybe they would like to have this album. If you have a DE and would like this, I'll send it your way.
