I've never played the Breedlove so I do not have an opinion. 

Comment by FloridaGull on May 14, 2016 at 4:23pm

I am considering an attempt to trade my 2011 Guild GAD F212 for this Breedlove at Wolfe Guitars in Jupiter, FL:

Any thoughts for/against?    :-/

As I've mentioned previously (maybe not HERE, but in other places on the AGC), although I love the Guild GAD F212 in terms of its comfort to HOLD, it is not (for me) very comfortable to PLAY, as the string spacing at the nut is tighter than the string spacing at the nut on both my Seagull S12 and my Giannini Craviola.  In addition, the string spacing at the saddle on the Guild is 2 1/4", whereas the string spacing at the saddle on both of the others is 2 3/8" which, as I play primarily fingerstyle, is a difference I can feel.  Finally, the Guild has a gloss-finished neck, which I do not prefer.

What can you tell me about the Takamine EG345C 12 String?  Would a used one for $500 be a good price?

Hi Jim, Look here,

The wonder of the web!

Comment by Jim Yates on May 8, 2016 at 7:00pm

orry for posting this in the 12 string forum, but can anyone enlighten me about the 18 stringer being held by John Denver?  I assume it is 3 string courses.  Is it a custom job?  How many of these were made?

Hey ya'll:

Clyde here from New Orleans.

I contacted Stewart McDonald about my problem of the hard tuners on my

Silver Tone and he told me to use a lubricant that he uses  called Tri Flow.

It is a Teflon lubricant and it works well on open geared tuners.

I am going to order a tube from him and use it on my Silver Tone and I will let all

know how it works.
