"You're right, good songs do stand the test of time. What I meant was that I'd learned the songs from way back, when they were new hit songs on the "scene"."

NGD - Godin 5thAvenue Kingpin II

Used to have a Cognac burst Kingpin I which I foolishly sold maybe 6 months ago. Kind of missed it and a used Burgundy Kingpin II popped up on Kijiji. Just reacquainting myself with archtops again.The guitar is in excellent shape, but has a bit of fretware on the 2-3-4 frets. Anybody have any experience with 5th Avenues and fret wear? See More

Are We Allowed In???

Guess that depends on how we define 'small'...Here's the latest arrival...2003 Washburn J12SN - described as a 'medium jumbo' - somewhat larger and curvier body than my Recording King RO-10, but definitely not jumbo/dreadnaught size. Really comfortable guitar - fits well, solid spruce top over a deep-waisted rosewood lam body.…See More

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly. I am amazed at how cleanly both bindings look.  Some finish touch up will be required, but the overall appearance is more than…
