I have a blue AMI Wild Cherry I picked for $75, sight unseen, on Kijiji a few years ago. Great little instrument - " Barks pretty good for a small dog", as a friend says...kind of a snappy, snarly tone, great for doing a few blues licks...

I saw this on the AGF:

A 2012 Taylor BTO GA 12-Fret Cutaway: Mahogany/Cedar

He's asking $2150 - can't post pics from work... :-(

Catching up on posts today.  :-)

Florida Gull;

I have an Eastman AC412 and it's an outstanding instrument, at least I think so, especially for the price and workmanship.

Blackback Gull,

I don't have any RK guitars but I have one of the Recording King banjos and love it. Plays great, beautiful instrument and I got a bargain on it from a pawn shop.



That is one pretty instrument!

Thanks FG!  Yes those are hibiscus flowers.  This our first try with them and you can leave them outside until cold weather and then bring them inside for the winter. Someone told us that you keep the plants sort of on the dry side and be careful to not water them too much.  What is your experience with them?  (I brought up in the Taylor owners forum about how you post photos without links)

The Recording King RO-10 and RO-06 are OOO body guitars, 1.75 nut. Love my RO-10, despite some problems - see the RO-10 Update post for details. They retail for about $350, solid spruce over solid mahogany - the RO-06 has lam sides and back, hence less expensive. The luthier who has done the work on the RO-10 for me just shakes his head every time he plays it - "This thing's got no right to sound anything like it does..."

Those look like hibiscus flowers - they are all over down here - I didn't realize you had them in Indiana...I guess they perish every year?

Hope you don't mind - but here are the pics of your BEAUTIFUL guitar so lazy people (like me) don't have to click...

I haven't had the opportunity to play a 12-fret steel string - from what I've read, it would be perfect for fingerstyle...
