"While on this subject.... Check the book match joint on the back of the guitar. My Maritime has the same design herringbone inlay up the joint, while myNE and Coastline Folk simply have a glued joint. Again, no sound implications....."
"Jud - the song has possibilities I believe. Makes me want to tell you all a story about Mariotsville quarry....the chording combination sounds great on an acoustic - I'm a little uncertain about how much a larger instrument group or larger…"
"I can't say that I ever looked - but I'm thinking that in the process of making someting from precision cut to fit pieces of wood, there may be a number of marks made along the way that don't survive all the sanding or other finishing…"

"I am now playing 3 guitars regularly, recently increased from 2. I use uncoated strings, and when playing 2 guitars routiñely was changing the strings on both once a month. The reason I've moved to 3 guitars routinely played is due to a…"
"I'm still working - and busy enough that I don't have much time at all left over. I enjoy what I do, and it requires a high level of engagement.
However, this page is always open on my tablet so when that tablet is on this page is open.…"
"The position of the screw doesn't look right. All the forces acting on the strap are placing the screw into a searing stress, and it failed. The screw should hold the pin in, and that should be its sole duty. That only puts a tensile stress on…"
"I'm three weeks into my first set of EB ABs, and beginning to wonder......they seem to be losing lower end, and always sound slightly out of tune, no matter how I try to remedy that....... I think that the complaint characterized by the…"
