Laminate (?) Peeling Off Headstock 4 Replies

I have a 415 Jumbo (2001). A year or two ago I noticed light-shaded rings around the tuning posts. These gradually got bigger, and finally I realized that they were sort like bubbles. I could pick at…Continue

How do you feel about a website that has as an agenda belittling new (or old) musicians?? Zinego is a new band in Ireland who have produced their second CD. I happen to enjoy their music. However, even if I didn't, I certainly would never badmouth any musician! Most of us who play guitar know well how difficult, time consuming and costly it is to get a start in music. To have someone on the WWW spew out vitriol such as that found at is horrifying to me. If any of you care to join me in attempting to condemn this wrongful act, please do so by emailing them at 
Thanks for your help.

Hello group! I am a self taught beginner that ha s been "playing" for about 4 years and just recently purchased my first Taylor, a 210e, and am wondering if I need to take it to someone to have it setup or is it good to go right from Guitar Center? It sounds great to me but it was hanging on the stores wall to be played by anyone for who knows how long. I don't really know the intricacies of high end guitar manufacturers so any comments would be helpful! Also roughly what should I expect to pay for such services if I need them $50, $100 $400?

thanks in advance!

Love my Taylor, check out some of my vids in my profile to see a 814ce Limited Edition 2006 in action!

I am a performing singer/songwriter musician who performs 52 weeks a year either solo or with my band LifeLight. I have been playing a T5 that I set up with light acoustic strings for some time now, but have recently added a 614ce to my collection and truely have the best possible set up. Now if I could just find a K4 at an affordable price...

Went to a couple different stores and chose the 214ce. I love the Taylor but I have to get used to the piezo's before I use the 3 series and up expression system. I played the 9, 7, 5, and 314ce's and my style didn't really fit the expression system dynamics, but I fell in love with 214 and glad I did because it was the cheaper one too.

I just got a 2003 355 12 string I found on Ebay. The thing is pristine! Man, what tone! I used to have a 1999 855 I unfortunately sold a few years ago and was missing that lush 12 string sound. I'm happy again!

Love my 914C! It's in the shop for some fretwork, but I won't fret when I get it back. Steve Kovacik is a great, trusted luthier!

Awesome Daniel.. Casey is great, they're working on a custom for me in fact. Wow, 11 years, definitely 'kamaaina' then :) I'll order my guitar stand now and when you get an ukulele one, let me know.. I'm Koaloha Ukulele sponsored-I'm sure those guys would love to order as well.

All the best! P.

Hey Pali,
We met with Casey Kamaka at NAMM. As a result of our conversation, we are working on a smaller Ukulele, Mandolin, Violin specific unit to release in the very near future, and a larger one for Chello.
I lived on Oahu and Maui for 11 years. Seeing those guys at NAMM made me homesick...D

Pali, Go to the website, and place your order to reserve one.. We are getting slammed since NAMM. best regards, DC
