What a guy, good for him! Saw your post on the Gibson form, and found your video on YouTube (PJ's and all!). The guitar sounds super! Great job, keep practicing (especially on the 12 string - it builds strength in your hand and makes playing the 6 string feel like butter).  ;~}

Good Morning 12-Stringers!  My husband MADE me purchase a 2010 12-string Gibson Hummingbird a few months ago.  It is awesome!  I love the sound, I'm still working on Barre Chords, I've only been playing a year.  The guitar came from Custom House.

Hey Ginger...saw this Framus ad and thought of that a 12 sting bowie is playing in the background?!?!?

It is great (and rare) when a job is easier than you expect. That't why I never do plumbing jobs at the house.

Saddle problem fixed without drama, sorry guys. I decided to grab the saddle with a pair of vice grips and give it one last tug before I got to serious, it popped right out. The glue was along both sides of the saddle, in just a couple of spots. The glue did not have much shear strength; oh, and the bridge stayed put, thank God.

I have one son who plays guitar and bass, the other plays cello and bass, and my daughter gave me a grand daughter...if she plays piano or flute we will make that work!

There is nothing, but nothing, like a baby girl.


But just so you know, sometimes they want to play piano or flute or something.

Good luck on the bridge, Jay.

Robin, Edward, and Ed,

     Interesting article from StewMac today. Most likely will begin work on the Guild's glued in saddle this weekend. The weather looks like I'll be dodging thunderstorms, and since I'll be inside....well :-l  :-/ .  If I get into too much trouble, the Huss and Dalton boys are 20 minutes away ;-).


Be well all,


Jay P.
