 I just purchased a Analog Calibratable HygroSet Hygrometer intended for tabaco/cigar humidor (or guitar case :) installation

It's about 2" across, , which seems to be standard humidor installation size, with chrome bezel, sealing press fit fro case mount or magnetic mount for wallmount.. On sale at amazon for 11.50CAD. Seems to be at least as accurate as my digital Hygrosets. It will look nice in my 4th case mod project; Ibanez Artwood Parlour2, especially if it' s in the arch of an archtop case.

4th? you say.. yes.. not counting adding Logo's to all my hardshell cases...

- Neck lock for Tric cases

- Logo'ing Tric Cases

- Fitting S8 in a hardshell case

- Fitting a Parlor2 guitar in a Parlor/Grand  case (pending, still looking for a Parlour case)

Agree Dave ... I wouldn't make a 3 hour round trip into NYC if the guy paid me $150 just to take that guitar.

Comment by Dave Fengler on February 3, 2016 at 5:29am

I think I emailed that person months ago more or less telling him it's firewood.  

I've seen a few good deals on guitars in NYC but I'm not going to venture there, even if it's only 1.5 hours.  Not worth the risk.  And I hate traffic and one was streets!

Comment by Ron Khoo on February 2, 2016 at 8:49pm

Sounds like that gull 12 string is a very very bad deal.  This winter is relatively mind so it does not even have much value as firewood :(.

Comment by Jud Hair on February 2, 2016 at 8:40pm

Dave ... Wow, now that you mention it! Probably not worth the trouble then.  Even as a project since you gotta go into the city to look at it/buy it ... 

Comment by Dave Fengler on February 2, 2016 at 4:34pm

Jud - I've seen that one on there before.  A few months ago they wanted $175.  Someone "attempted" to repair all the cracks, including on either side of the neck.  That would have caused the neck to plunge into the top make the action a mile high.  Notice that it only has 6 strings, possibly not even tuned to pitch to keep it from imploding.

Here's a fairly rough looking Seagull 12-string with QI and free gig bag for only $150 in the NYC area on Craigslist ...

tony remember to wear a helmet :)

Comment by Tony K. on February 1, 2016 at 2:40pm

It was great.  Thanks for asking!  So many things I never knew and had not considered when it comes to driving a bus and especially a school bus (which is the only way to get started on this without having heaps of cash to pay for it all yourself).  I'm having fun.  I love to learn new things and this is definitely giving me a nifty new educational experience.  Tomorrow I get to drive one for the first time, but just on a closed course for maneuvering erm, maneuvers.

 :D    Outa my way!  behind the wheel!   :P
