"Man, those 2 guitars are real beautys !! I read somewhere that a good guitar is like fine wine . . . it gets better with age. I guess they're talking about the wood getting a more mellow sound."

"I use Martin Bluegrass strings on both my Gibson acoustics and I think they are the best! A light gauge set on my two Gibsons buzz on the D and G strings when I do any aggressive rhythm work (I am by no means a guitar basher, but I do like fast…"

"Hi, no it is just a shot of me to the side, my other two bandmates are with me! Never heard of acoustic solo on bass...that would be a good one! In my trio we trade off on instruments for many of the songs, but my main job is 6 and 12 string…"

"JB, I appreciate the quick answer. I already have 2 sets of Ernie Ball 12's , (not 13s , my mistake) I'm gonna try one set just to see the sound I get "unplugged". I like what you told me about the Crate Taxi, I'll look for…"

Eddie Colon replied to Eddie Colon's discussion What strings for a "deeper" sound ? in the group Round Back Guitars
"Eddie, the Celebrity model is made in Korea, I'm sure the Balladeer is made completely in the USA. I wanted a Balladeer, but I saw it for around $850 , I just can't do it. I saw this Celebrity refurb for $299 on ebay and jumped on it.…"

JB Maddox replied to Eddie Colon's discussion What strings for a "deeper" sound ? in the group Round Back Guitars
"13''s are probably way to heavy, That gauge will put a huge amount of stress on the bridge and soundboard and in any kind of low humidity start pulling off the bridge and perhaps start cracking the sound board. The Martin Bluegrass set…"

"Hey Eddie, We may be form the same decade, I was born in '55 and am now 55! My step son is 17, my son is 24 and my daughter is 29. I am not sure of all or any of the differences between my Balladeer and a Celebrity, other than the USA…"

"Hi Eddie, I have been playing Ovations for a long time, deep bowls, mid bowls, shallow backs, and even a nylon Country Gentleman. You are simply not going to get the "boomy" sound of a Martin or similar wood box because the body of the…"
