"Hands down, my favorite is the slope dread. ie, gibson j45. To me, the sound difference between the slope & square dreads is too minimal to mention, but in rare instances when I want to reach the 15th fret I can without resorting to something I…"

"As a lap player... ideally... smaller, thinner with low action, making up the loss of "punch" with electronics. As a lover... any size or style, other than some of the heavy metal electrics. A question for you, Archie... I see you…"

Fav Guitar Types?

Okay guys just wanted to see what kind of guitars you find partial too and why? I wanted to see what everyone tastes were lol.I'll start. My personal favorite are actually jumbo and grand auditorium style guitars because i find with them that they just bloom all the notes and chords inside of them. I used to play dreads originally but i find between the two that natural reverb and resonance of jumbo's and GA have a nice touch to them.See More

"For me it  was a choice between the DCPA-4 and the GCPA-4 ... I pondered the decision for 2-3 weeks.   I "A/B-ed" the two guitars over and over again, first with me playing and then guy at the shop playing and both…"

"nice! i was thinking about getting the DCPA-4 because of its better bottom end sound. Have you tried the other models? How do you think they compare?"

Archie Carreon replied to The Bobwag's discussion Pickup or Microphone?
"Honestly, i would rather use a mic than a pick up. The reason being that the sound just from plugging it in to a computer can sound... for lack of a better word... fake. You have an acoustic guitar. Your notes and sound swirl and bloom from the…"

"It is hard not to agree with Kent's comments. Since it is a new guitar, you should not have to treat the fretboard for several months--general statement. Also simply wiping down your new ax with a 100% clean cotton cloth after every use will…"

Taking care of my new martin!

I recently just purchased a new martin. The Gpcpa4 and I love this thing. I am worried though about taking care of it. This is my first high end guitar. i got a humidifier for it but im not really sure how to clean it. I'm worried if using anything other than the martin cleaning supplies would void my warrenty. Also with cleaning the fretboard I am not sure how to clean it. It's not made of ebony but actually black Richlite which is a synthetic ivory. Does lemon oil work with the material?See More

"Its all really about getting better at playing the way are. Jimi hendrix and john mayer both use their thumbs for the bass notes. Especially when they play chords like a D chord but use their thumb to play the F# on the low E string. It takes work…"

"The Carvin recommended by Arlie Box is 34 pounds (similar to the Marshall), which for me would be too heavy for "constant" moving about, but maybe sturdiness comes with the weight. I have a Roland "Cube Street" that runs on AA…"
