"I really would have liked to have liked the SJ-180 - but it was too tight at the saddle... Nice guitar, though - good luck to Jeff with the learning curve... :-)"

"Yes I agree there are many strings out there but its good to hear about different makes and why you chose them. The Newtone strings I mentioned are quite unique They are handmade as oppose machine made. They do a dadgad set but the low tension ones…"

"What Ellen should have given each twin is a Martin 0-28VS or 0028VS.  That would fit them size wise and would be quality (expensive) guitars."

20155 Martin offerings

Just watch a video showing the 2015 NAMM Martin. Nice looking, sound good but $5,000 plus wow. I would never be able to take one out and play because I'd be very unfortable with my 9 stuck in the back of my pants in case somebody got to close. Also I just don't think it cost that much to sound that good.SEAGULL STRONGSee More

WANT TO BUY: Alvarez MD350, must have 1-3/4" nut

I want to purchase an Alvarez MD350 with 1-3/4" nut. In my experience, Alvarez is notorious for changing manufacturing specs without notice: I've played MD350 guitars having the 1-3/4" nut I'm seeking, and other MD350s of the same vintage having a standard 1-11/16" nut.  The wider nut is only 1/16" wider, but it makes a difference to my hands.Not everything about the MD350 suits me, but I like the 1-3/4" nut enough to overlook/overcome certain other factors.I prefer the standard dreadnought…See More

"Hi Alan. We are very blessed in our music ministry. We have 3 full teams that are on a weekly rotation, with at least 5 or 6 members in each team. We are a church of about 200 to 250, and so having 3 teams in a smaller church  is quite rare.…"

This story has a happy ending, folks, and I'll start with it. After working for three weeks to painstakingly restore Bryan Sutton's flood damaged Banjo Killer, Shin Ichikawa finally got to test drive it today!

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…
