Help!  I'm getting ready to travel to Florida next week and was wondering if any of you have had any experience traveling with your GS Mini or small guitar? What if there is no room in the overhead…Continue

One's popped up on our local Kijiji for $215 Cdn., with what appears to be a decent case. Internet reviews seem mixed. I really like my RK RO-10, but that's an entirely different cat - solid mahogany…Continue

David also owns a custom Yamamoto Talus he recently had built. David why don't you post a pic or two? And, maybe provide specs.

Welcome David it's great to have you. I love my short scale Martin OMC!

I had no idea this group existed!  As owner of an old Martin 0-18 (24.65" scale length), I'm interested!

Congrats to your son and his fiancée! The gift of music is a great blessing indeed...
I'll probably end up with a 12 fret steel-string myself someday... :-)

Hello Gary

 I just wanted everyone to know that two of my guitars are finding a new home with my son and his fiancee`. His birthday is Feb 7th and hers is in April. They are getting married soon and I want them to learn guitar together. I pray that this will be part of what will keep them together.

The Summit Parlor that I found is "The One" I have been looking for. It is my go-to guitar and I prefer it above all the others.

I am giving my son and my future daughter-in-law the Norman Protege Folk and the Campfire Parlor respectively. I know they will love them almost as much as they love me.

BTW FloridaGull, thanks for the list on inexpensive 12 frets, just in case I get a bad case of GAS. Acoustseltzer Plus does not always work.

Have a nice evening y'all.

25.4 mm per inch, for converting mm dimensions - 50 mm = 1.97 inches, for example...

Thanks Michael for you  comment about nut size for my fingers.


Comment by Jud Hair on January 22, 2012 at 9:22am

Thanks Craig ... so the fairly standard 1 11/16 inch nut width on most dreadnoughts equals 1.6875 (1.69) ... good to know for comparison's sake.  No wonder the Seagull at 1.80 feels so good to me.

Comment by Craig MC on January 22, 2012 at 8:21am

As I was looking over the discussion on what guitar FloridaGull was considering for his daughter, I kept stumbling on the nut width dimensions being given in fractions and decimals. In case anyone else is mathematically challenged like me, here is a handy conversion calculator I found:
