"Robert I'm addicted to the sound of new strings, so I'm changing mine once a month (on several guitars - nother subject) but on my NE I've noticed that proper "seating" of the saddle in the bridge when changing strings has…"
"Now I think I'm wanting an excursion small body guitar - but I just remembered the nut width......... I'll see, hear and play my sister-in-law's cherry laminate Excursion Grand tonight. It will be my first look at one of the…"
There is something I believe to the argument that the HG finish reduces sound levels some, or at least tempers the sound a bit. While I have not compared my Maritime's sound to an SG finished Maritime, I have compared it to my cedar…"
"I'm not sure what the sound of a mahogany top guitar is like, I've never had one and never played one. I've got a Maritime SWS HG dreadnaught, its git a spruce top with mahogany back & sides. While I'm quite convinced that…"
"The performers I have seen in the shop in town were all spruce and maple. Since I've got a Maritime, I didn't look much further when I was looking for a cedar top guitar. They played nicely enough, but I was looking for a cedar top, and…"
"I'm thinking about all this..... and turning it into a NE cedar top dread. Burn stamp and all. It was an older S6 that inspired me to order the NE, and when I compare the NE to the same S6 its everything the S6 is, just a little better. I guess…"

"There's that fun we were talking about.....only takes a small dose of insanty to find it........ but its well worth it
The fun, at least for me, is greatly enhanced by a good performance. Nothing can take the place of a great playing and…"
This is definitely true for me also. The guitars don't actually change, but at times one plays better than another. At times one sounds better than another. Then there are days I can play great, and days I'm lousy. Days I can…"
"I'll pass along my thoughts after seeing and playing the Excursion Grand. It may be a week or so before that happens.
Ron, if you're actually thinking about a turntable, I've got a Thorens sitting in its original packing, only thing…"
"My sister-in-law did get a new Seagull yesterday. Didn't get an Entourage Rustic, but got an Excursion Grand. Evidently they had got some in the shop in town since I had been there last. Now I'll be soon hearing an Excursion. I've…"
"When CDs came out I certainly did not miss the sounds other than music, and my Thorens turntable went into its box where it still is today. I'm waiting for Neil to make good on his PureTone products, I believe I could go for a current tech type…"
"I'm still in 2005..... and I'm a little skeptical about the last cartoon panel, I don't personally know anyone who is in 2014 according to the cartoonist. Networked and all that, punch some stuff on a tablet to turn on equipment and…"
