The Frustrated Gull squawking his concerns ... opinions/comments welcome

Gull Darn It!  Having squirreled away around $1,400 from my summer gigs, I'm debating my Christmas present to myself.  Of course it will be a guitar (duh!) ... but which guitar?Once again, my Seagull GAS becomes problematic.I'd love the opportunity to own a Seagull Artist Studio with its wide 1.8 inch nut, rich ebony fingerboard and bridge, lovely Sitka spruce top, and beautiful solid rosewood sides and back.  If a brand new one was sitting in my lap right now, I'd almost certainly pull the…See More

Mike Conjuay replied to Janet M House's discussion 2 in 1 question about beginner playing chords & first guitar
"Consider a classical, they have WIDE necks. The drawback is that they have flat fret boards, so there is a greater problem with barre chords. Keeping his thumb BEHIND the neck (instead of wrapped around the neck) will also force his hand into a…"

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 16: The Banjo Killer slays again!

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…
