"I'd agree that scale length matters but the chap who said body shape matters also has a valid point,though, true, he might not had any short scale guitars to sell! . I'd also chip in that 12 frets to the body also makes a…"

"I'm no expert on this, but it seems to me that a lot of this has to do with a perception of artistry and esthetics.  There are some fine high-end archtops with laminated tops - Dale Unger's sell for well over $5,000 and sound…"

Michael S. Jackson replied to Andy3Sheds's discussion Carved tops in the group Acoustic Archtops
"Someone once said: A guitar is a tree that doesn't yet know it's dead. Or something like that. When you press-shape wood, it wants to go back to its origninal shape. It tends to push outward (to flatten but the sides hold it in) and this…"

Carved tops

I know its taken as given that a carved top on an archtop is preferable to a formed/pressed top. But why is that?Surely the severing of wood fibres in the caving process inhibits vibration. Can anyone explain?See More

Hi Andy -thanks for friend response. It seems both comprehensive and complicated here! I'm not great at keeping up with all these internet thingies I join, but I'll try to look in now and again somme other familiar faces too! Best wishes, Keith

Check out the "Seagull Spoken Here" group - you'll see pictures (and a discussion) about my new guitar - a Godin 5th Avenue CW Kingpin II! :-)

Yes, indeed - that's the one! I saw it in high school - hilarious! I need to find a copy of that on dvd...

I loved Fawlty Towers too!  Have a few dvd's, but not all...

Also, John Cleese in "Clockwise" (I believe...) - great film!

Monty Python reference on the Acoustic Guitar Community!  Cool!  I have the whole boxed set...hopefully, no one will think less of me for that... ;)

Although I myself have never had more than one shed at a time, and currently have none, I don't think it's eccentric to have as many sheds as you please.  I did think the Monty Python bit was pretty funny.

I have to ask, is your name in any way a reference to the Monty Python skit about Arthur "Twosheds" Jackson?

Hi, Andy,
I did receive, and I did accept your invitation to join the fingerstyle players group. Thank you. If I'm entitled to a bit of humour, I'd say you can't deny I don't use picks, I play with my fingers, that's true. But my American fingerpicking days are long gone. Portuguese guitars are played using only the thumb and the index finger, as you can see in the videos I posted in my page. Now, here's a tip for those that want to have strong nails: Just paint them with liquid superglue. It's almost invisible. Two or three layers, buff, and that's it!
