I bought a new red diamond head for $30. It is cheap but fun. I need a neck strap as it is too small.

Mine came a week or so ago.

As far as Recording King products go, I have one of their cheaper banjos and love it. Looking at buying another one next year.

May give one of their 000 "smaller body guitars" a try too.

You guys are cracking me up.

What's a Seagull Mini-Jumbo then. Not a mini and not a jumbo and not a dread.

Whatever it is I love mine.

I got a big, fat guitar, sittin' on my knee.
Yes, a big, fat guitar, just sittin' on my knee.
When they hear it played everybody runs to see.Well, that big fat guitar sure can play the blues.
With my big fat guitar I sure can play the blues.
It sure blows away the dreadnought I used to use

Classic!  Thanks Jim.. that made my evening.

My other main guitar is a jumbo (ej200-ce) so the 000 seems smaller.

Maybe I should have said "smaller-body guitars"...the RO-10 feels a lot tidier than my Seagull S6 - mainly a matter of depth, I think - feel like I have to wrap myself around the dread, while the 000 nestles into me. I also have an A&L AMI, a parlour guitar that's smaller again, and it's also a very comfortable fit. And the sound of those smaller guitars is distinctly different to my ears...

Jeff Hatcher - Surely you don't consider that an insult?

I picked up a soprano ukulele yesterday for $25. It was $100 new online. Why???
Comment by Ron Khoo on October 22, 2014 at 4:37pm

By traditional martin standards, a small guitar is like size 4 or higher. Even a modern parlor guitar is jumbo compared to size 4 guitars. But these are larger than my cheepo saprano ukelele.

Jim Yates... did you just call my guitar "fat"?

Them's fighting words....
