Alvarez "Masterworks" MF60C? 1 Reply

I've had a soft spot for Alvarez for many years. I found my first one in 1994 in a pawn shop. I don't know what model it was, mostly because after playing it for about two minutes I didn't care. It…Continue

So Jeremy how did your son and fiancee like the guitars? Bet that was a big and happy surprise you give them!



Comment by GNuck on February 21, 2012 at 7:27pm

Yes David some pictures would be great.

Mike yours certainly is a beautiful one!

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!



Comment by David Casseres on January 27, 2012 at 5:44pm

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...
