Dave Fengler commented on John Wilson's group 12-String Guitar
"I have a 1970's Ibanez 627-12 that I got in trade.  It needed lots of work; top was bellied, lifted/high frets.  I put a few hours work into it over a few months and it turned out pretty good.  The action is very low and easy to…"

"I would recommend used also.  Let someones else take the hit! All of my guitars are used.  Most from CraigsList."

Dave Fengler commented on Terry Angelli's group Mentors
"Rich - Join the Seagull group also, even if you don't own a Seagull guitar.  A great bunch of guys.  The topics don't always stay on Seagull.  It's the most active group on AGC."

Dave Fengler commented on James Sennett's group Martin Owners
"WARNING - Martin guitar kits do not make any specific Martin model.  The kits may include factory "second" parts that they can't use to build guitars.  I had heard rumors and contacted Martin customer service and confirmed.…"

Dave Fengler replied to Terry Angelli's discussion New requests? in the group Mentors
"I live in a town of 50,000 people.  Not small, not big.  I'm not even sure how to find someone with similar interests.   I could advertise on CraigsList.  Possibly risky.   I should ask at the local guitar store (not…"

Dave Fengler replied to Terry Angelli's discussion New requests? in the group Mentors
"Yes, sometimes I hear a song and get interested in learning it.  I find the lyrics and chords and make my own cheat sheet, mess around with it for an hour or 2, get bored, and move on to something else. I wish I could find someone close by!!…"

"I've had a severe lack of interest the last 3 or 4 weeks.  I've got plenty of guitars to work on and resources to learn from.  No motivation."

Dave Fengler replied to Greg Ballantyne's discussion Can We STAND Another String Discussion? in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"My experience is similar.  I'm using the medium-lights, their gages are slightly lighter than other people, I normally use lights.  They seem a bit jangly at first but they cool off a little after a few days.  They cleaned up the…"

"I once saw an ad on CL for a cool guitar, but they didn't put anything in the reply section.  No phone number, no email.  They even reposted it a week later.  They had their location on the map which turned out to be a huge…"

Dave Fengler commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"It looks great!   I've seen nondescript ads selling a Full Size acoustic guitar for $100, no brand, model, picture, town.   Even better is someone trying to sell the same blue Yamaha acoustic, probably worth $100-150, asking $195 or…"

Dave Fengler commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I hate it when they don't delete the ad after it's sold.  Especially for a great deal.  They must get hundreds of emails asking about it.  Wouldn't it be easier to delete the post vs. getting hundreds of useless replies?"

"The S6 IS my first acoustic, about 3 years ago.  I have/had 7 other Gulls."

Dave Fengler commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"Mine is a Coastline Folk.   I had a 1998 Seagull Grand Parlor with the wider neck.  I traded it for a 1978 Yamaha FG-770s.  The Grand was way over braced, sounded dead."
Mar 13
Dave Fengler commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I have a 2004 Seagull Folk that has the wider neck.  The neck is also bolted on so I can do a neck reset when it's required."

Dave Fengler commented on Jud Hair's group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"You can always change the nut to one with a wider string spacing but then they get a bit close to the edge.  I like the extra space on the sides of the fretboard."

Dave Fengler commented on Terry Angelli's group Mentors
"There are always some interesting guitars on Craigslist in the Boston area.  A little far for me to drive to look at them. Did they change the nickname of Boston from Bean Town to Snow Town?"

For a guy with only 2 - 5 years playing experience you have an impressive list of guitars! I'm jealous since I only have five guitars, but I'm catching up! :)

Thanks for joining the Mentors group and please let me know what I can do for you.
