"Edward - yeah, a nice Christmas present indeed!! Although, GAS prices ( LOL ) being what they are, I sold off my 1994 712 to offset the cost of the T3. I wasn't playing it much these days so parting with it was not too…"
"I was going to save my saga until after I took delivery, but since you brought it up . . .
Late in December 2011 I ordered a T3/B with BTO inlays on the fretboard and headstock. Since Taylor was closed for vacation I was told by the guitar…"
"Hey all... Adding to the string conversation of late, as Edward knows, I have a '74 Dove Custom (shown here in my profile pic) on which I use Elixir Phosphor Bronze Light (12-53, Elixir part number 16052). I also have a 2003 J45 on which…"
"Walt, a well timed review of a superb instructional video. Thanks for that. Not unlike Edward's tale, I too lost a pick into a soundhole. I too signaled my roadie (as one does) to bring my backup guitar. After two or…"
"Hey everyone, happy holidays! I just ordered a T3/B in the honeyburst finish. I did a BTO inlay on the fingerboard and headstock. Anyone in the group with a T3 that can recommend a good amp in the 60w range?"
"Hey everyone, I'm popping in here from Ed's Gibson group. My wife's got an early 80's original fretless Hofner Violin bass in great condition with original case AND a bullet case. She can't play it anymore and…"
"Hey Ed, nice pic! In regard to your related post in the coffeehouse group, it's good to find venues that treat us like musicians, not migrant workers! Wait, are those vocations one and the same?? :-p"
Hi Craig! Hope things are good with you and you all are somehow staying warm! We are all good and still out there playing...we are booking for the new year now. NO, I am not selling off any of my guitars and I guess that James is just asking about buying guitars like mine...I have yet to answer him, but he ain't gonna easily find a Guild JF212! Thanks for asking and hope to talk to you again soon! Ed
I was on your web site and perusing the pics (I love those with the dark and light lighting!) and saw one of Jean playing a Hofner Beatle bass...I didn't know you all had one of those! I have the icon model, it was a Christmas present from my wife a few years back...how does Jean like it? Ed
I don't think I ever go the pictures you talked about in your January 10th message (see below), but would love to see them. Maybe I could use of one you playing the Dove live for the miniature I am building for Nancy...Thanks, Ed
Happy new year to you too! Thanks, it was taken at a gig last year. This guy took over 300 pics of us and we were able to use about 6 of them. Talk about a non-photogenic band!!!
I recorded our first 2010 gig last night, playing the Dove out for the first time (the Fishman p/u was spectacular). I'll see what comes out of it and send something your way for Nancy as promised. That said, we've got a gig on the 23rd which I'm planning to have someone take video. I hope to gett something really nice out of it for her, but we'll see what happens.
