"Jackson Browne has a fair collection himself and that first Solo Acoustic CD is a great one, he was a bit critical of SS having so many guitars but then he says he really didn't "understand" at the time."

I went to your page and saw some of your pics...there is one from a visit you made to the Martin Museum and took a picture of the exhibit with Crosby, Stills and Nash...in the bottom right hand corner is a miniature guitar (000-45) in a little case that I created! Here is your picutre:

Oops, that S was a typo...It's a standard D28. My D28-12 is in the shop right now getting a neck reset and refret...when I get it back it will be kept tuned an whole step down for songs I can't sing that high on...like McCartney's "We can work it out." I have a 1980 Guild 12 string I kept strung with extra lihgts and tuned to pictch, but the double truss rods in the neck keep it in check! Edward
Hi Bob, welcome to the songwriters group! We look forward to "talking" with you there about songwriting! I have a 1976 Martin S28 and a 1980 D 28 12string. Although I play pro, I have several guitars I use on stage but my D28 6 string is my home guitar for writing and recording. Maybe you could post some of your songs here. I have become pretty good friends with another guy from Australia named Ken Brodie, he is from Darwin Northern Territory...don't expect you to know him, but he is a great writer and player/singer...you might want to get in touch with him. So, welcome!
