Morning All:


I am new to the forum, but enjoy playing my 1965 3/4 Silvertone acoustic guitar which was my wife's when she was teenager but it is mine now and I play it every chance I get.

I will try and post a picture later.

Happy Strumming

If anyone is looking for a travel guitar, Voyage-Air has some special pricing on what they call "Travel Relics" - basically, a blemished in some way "B-stock" type situation.  Seem to be some good prices - here's the link:

Glad you like the feel of the stratabond neck.  I guess I have to play my 000 martin more even though it is basically my go to guitar now as I do not want to use my better Martin or Taylor with the dry conditions..

Ron i like the neck, and this neck is thicker than Seagull's. I want Godin to replace all their Seagull maple necks with it!

I like the feel, i like the immediate tactile indication of the angle of your hand during fingering sequences. I love the look and .... the texture.

In fact the whole guitar has a very different feel from the typical glossy and is not similar to Seagull non-gloss finishes.When comparing my Seagull NE MiniJumbo to this, the NE finish is almost slippery. Koa has a very particular texture,

In last few days I have had to ask a couple people to stop stroking my guitar :)

..and i have not taken it out of concert tuning yet...

Congratulations on the new guitar, it's a good looker.

Have you got sore fingers yet.

Comment by Ron Khoo on March 3, 2015 at 8:20am

Robert, How do you like the stratabond neck?  I have a Martin OOO sized X1 with the stratabond neck.  I find the neck feel a bit off compared to a solid wood neck.

It looks good and probably sound great .

another is it a SMG?

I Bought a Martin GPCPA5K yesterday.

This was after trying non-setup Baby Taylor and beautiful MiniGS and a Seagull NE Heart of Cherry/Cedar.
