2013 Crossroads Guitar Festival 2 Replies

Not sure where to post this so I chose this group because of some of the interesting guitars at this year's festival. Yes, most of it is electric but there is also a lot of acoustic music on this…Continue

Added another 12 string into the mix....yes, my Wife was very supportive in this !!

It's the : Martin 000012-28H AG Arlo Guthrie     A smaller body that's as fun to play as it is too look at.

  sadly, the man who sold it to me called it "MINT',,,the finish crack in the center didn't happen because of shipping, also, who would ship a 12 string with only 8 on it??!! I'm bringing it to an authorized Martin Service person to have it brought to it's finest condition.

 Steer clear of a man named Dannie Powers from Virginia...deceitful description is now going to cost me time and $$

Amen Brother Michael....there is something extraordinarily transcendent about music and the emotions it elicits across the human condition.

It comes very close to the experience of giving and receiving love, the most powerful and beguiling of our capacities.

Wolfe Guitars in Jupiter, FL, has good things like that occasionally -  You can search all of g-base or Reverb ( as well...

The best they have right now is a 1971 Martin D-35 - too new for you... ;-)

FG - Figured out that there are thousands of guitars. So, I'm thinking of only pre-1970 Martin dreads. Partly passion, partly investing....want to buy/trade/sell towards owning a nice vintage D model 6-string.

But, the thrill of the hunt is very stimulating/intriguing.

Hey Ted - maybe this should be the "flag" for the group...

A True Sentiment...

Uh Oh... ;-)

Will your collection have a focus on certain types of instruments?  Is this going to be a more "passionate" collection, or an "investment" collection?

You may need to find a Giannini Craviola - 12 and 6 string steel, and 6 string nylon models - cool shape, comfortable, and somewhat unique!
