I'm with Robert on this one. Wife is a Saint !!! And. ...she's picking up a 12 string to learn! !! She's a keeper! !  My Martin 00028-12 seems to suit her.

Robert W - borrowed an Alvarez maple body 12 from a friend today (while my Martin'sin the shop). We played around with Extreme's 'Hole Hearted' and I'm going to see if I can get it down.  Nuno B is a mean guitarist.

And, Antonio - it's not luck, I'm very BLESSED to have a wife like my Sue!!!.

Robert... why d'you say we're in trouble?.. It's you that are VERY LUCKY!!! Obviously I was kidding, but, seriously speaking, it's a rare thing that a woman (when she became a wife!) still loves her housband's guitars... often she sees them as competitors,  to whom the man dedicates attentions... unless you play a love song for her!

So... no protest songs at home! Eheheheheh...

My girlfriend asked me to remove the third string on her guitar. At least I think that's what she meant......

You are a Lucky guy Robert.

I myself did meet a woman like that..but i was married at the time ;( When we sang together I would get music shivers..

My wife claims to have played in High School.  We've bought 3 or 4 guitars for her but she's never picked it up again.  She says that's her goal again this summer.  We'll see.

Some of you guys are in BIG trouble!

For my part, I met the woman who would become my wife over my 12 and we've been singing and playing together for over 40 years now.  It feels like an amputation when we're not playing together.
