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

"Sure no one wants a brazilian?"

Ron - would you be referring to a guitar, supermodel, or wax?

Or all 3? ;-)

The Breedlove brazilian looks fabulous except for the bridge. Sure no one wants a brazilian?

Hi FloridaGull

No I didn't think you had bought it, but wouldn't blame you if you had.

Nothing wrong with Cort guitars, well made for the price, I had one a few years ago.

The Dana Bourgeois OM looks a fab guitar. So many great guitars out there.

"If you think this message has a tinge of jealously embedded, you would be right." - Derick, I hope you don't think I bought the $7000 Breedlove - we're trying to buy a house... ;-)

I didn't even buy a $3950 Dana Bourgeois OM - http://www.gbase.com/gear/dana-bourgeois-vintage-om -

Dana Bourgeois Vintage OM

although, when I did go there a week before last Father's Day (2014), I did play it - and bought a $300 Cort L450-O... :-)

Yeah... but the prize too is fantastic! For that amount I should buy a six and a twelve... both of high degree.

Hi FloridaGull

Absolutely a fantastic guitar.

But if I had it, it would only play the same tunes as my Maritime guitar.

If you think this message has a tinge of jealously embedded, you would be right.

Thanks, Antonio - I stand corrected re the Stones version, but it' still the one that caught my ear for 'dobro' sounds...lol...

Very tasty work on your rendition - love the slide work and you nail the vocal. As we say around here, that fella can play...

Comment by Ron Khoo on April 26, 2015 at 4:25pm
Very cool slide.
